Default Gazi suspension. Good,bad,or ugly?

Any using the Gazi shocks? They seem ok for the price, but I want your opinion.
Thanks.

Myself or anyone else I have asked hasn’t heard of them before either. I was talking to a suspension specialist about rebuilding my xr shocks with stiffer springs and he said it would be more cost effective to buy a new set of Gazi shocks. I was like who? So I phoned Gazi Australia today and spoke to Allan. He seemed like an old school no bullshit kind of guy. I found out they have been around since 2006, they custom build every order to bike and rider specs, they use the good stuff and back up their product beyond the 1 year warranty. Seemed like good value so now I’m waiting for the mailman to deliver a set of custom built Gazi Hyper X gas shocks. Time will tell if I’ve made a good decision.

They sound good on paper, the proof is in the pudding. I expect a roadtest will be forth coming soon and we will all be enlightened. Let the fun begin........happy for you. New bike stuff always brightens up a day!

I didn’t ask. I just assumed they have similar travel to the stock shocks (3.5 inches). The length will be the same. Its worth finding out though, thanks.
