Hi, Original owner of '01 beo 150 w/ 20,000 miles on the clock here. Have a question about my rear shock. I sometimes carry a passenger and also cargo, and have noticed under that scenario that the rear tire rubs against the inside of the fender at the top when I hit a bump at speed. This occurs with 2 up riding even without cargo but with 2 up and cargo it is quite noticeable and frequent.
I asked about purchasing a new shock unit and was told by the dealer it is $250. I love my old beo but would rather not spend that kind of money just for the shock if it can be helped.
Do I need to replace the shock, which is the original in order to not have the suspension bottom out with 2 up riding. If I do need to replace the shock does anyone have a good used unit for sale?
Thanks .. Jason in NYC
