If you haven't already replaced them I've just replaced mine.
I don't recommend buying the official shocks as they cost a mint! (i could'nt find them for less than about £30 each!!!).
I bought a pair of Forsa shocks that cost £32.99 from a shop local to me in Sheffield.
If you phone them they might be able to post you a set.
I spoke to Paul who was very helpful.
He might ask the measurements from top to bottom (measured from bolt to bolt & I think it was 31cm).
Dead easy to fit but i did change my rear brake shoes at the same time so there was no weight on the rear - should be fine done one at a time.

p.s. I've had to do loads to my bike so I'll keep checking this site for a while. (e.g. changed front fork seals, replaced speedo & cable, refitted petrol cap key cover, replaced cylnder head after exhaust bolts sheered off, reaplced brakes front & rear, replaced rear axel, replaced battery, replaced speedo bulb with a led & lots of other s**t that I had to work out).

Hope this helps.

No spark from spark plug new ht lead still no spark

When you replace spark plugs, it is highly recommended to replace the plug wires as well, if you have bad spark plug wires you will not get any fire from them, also have your coil pack(s) and ignition module tested.

Hi, My brake light on my Gilera cougar seems to be constantly on. I've only just bought the bike so not sure if it turns off when riding and stays on when parked. Possibly the front switch on the...

could be either switch at fault, start by pulling the wire connectors off the rear switch to see if the light extinguishes, if so its the rear switch, if not its the front.

Tyre pressures front & rear

Look at the sidewall of both tires. There will be a 'MAX PSI' embossed on the tire. It will probably say Max 45 PSI. At 45psi the bike will ride like a rock. At 15psi it will ride really squirrely. Find a psi at which you feel the bike handles well and rides well. One rider may weigh 125 pounds and the next rider may weigh 300pounds. The best psi for each rider will be different due to weight.
