Anybody running a WP rear shock on a TLS? A friend tells me they are quite a bit cheaper than the Ohlins (at least in Australia). Haven't found much on the web. The WP website does list one for the TLS.

You can go straight the Wilbers site and order there. Quite a few years ago, Klaus had a group buy on shocks for the FJR1300. I ordered one from him and he was a straight shooter. I had no issues with him at all.

Wilbers 641 shock works a treat on my TLR, I found a new one pretty cheap on ebay from a German seller 4 or 5 years ago.
The Australian distributor is 'Suspensions'R'us' in Melbourne, I bought some Wilbers fork springs from them recently. They should be able to help you out if you decide on a Wilbers. $1690AUD for the 641 with preload, rebound and high/low speed compression adjustment.

No, it replaces SOAS and remote rotary damper. There are plenty of shock options available, Wilbers being one. Best of luck.
