ok i ordered elka stage 2 shocks for the rear. my schocks came in and do not have resavors on them. elka told me that ALL stage 2 shocks have resavors. dealer i got them from said the ones he ordered, the ones i have are stage 2 without resavors how is that possible??:confused:


"The Stage 2 builds upon our Stage 1 with the addition of an external reservoir for more oil volume and flow that provides better cooling for a more consistant damping throughout the ride. We highly recommend the Stage 2 as our entry-level model for spirited riding, aggressive riders and for heavier vehicles."

Already answered your PM... Basically, the dealer lied to you. Stage 2 and Stage 2+ are not listed in the Elka catalog for the rear of the 700xx... only the fronts.

According to the Elka catalog... your choices for the rear are limited to...
Stage 1+R (pre-load and rebound... no rezzie)
Stage 3 (pre-load, compression and rebound... with remote rezzies)
Stage 4 (the above with high and low speed compression)

Did you pay by credit card? If so and they don't make it right, you can call your credit card and dispute the charge saying they charged you for one thing and delivered another and they will take the $$ back

First you say hey you screwed up now fix it. If they tell you :birds:, then you arent being the ass; you are just protecting your investment. Its a chunk of change for those things!

The customer is always right.......Especially when were talking about dumping a grand on the xx. Give em hell. If you have your e-mail confirmation with the part numbers you should be fine. Just Bitch and complain till they fix it. If anything else, I could have my wife call in for you:hey::hey: She is really good in these situations. She makes people turn 180 in these arguments.

OK... No matter how you cut it... Stage 2 is a Stage 1, but with a rezzie.
If it doesn't have a rezzie, it's a Stage 1.
The basic Stage 1 and the basic Stage 2 are the same EXCEPT for the rezzie.
Don't know if Elka makes a Stage 2 for the rear of the 700xx... Just know it isn't listed in the catalog I downloaded from Elka direct. Also tried to call Elka to find out this morning, but got answering machine. I wanted to go straight to the horses mouth rather than trust any dealer to tell me the truth.

ok so all is being taken care of. called elka again there are no stage 2 rear shocks for our quads they had valve problems and are discontinued. so the only option was to say with these and get $80 back or to upgrade to the stage 3 shocks which Baxter found for $975. so im sending them back and they are getting upgraded.

That's a great price for Stage 3. I think you'll like them. You also might want to consider getting Modquad rezzie clamps. They're more secure and look better. Mine are ordered.
