Elka rear recreational shocks

Does anyone know if the Elka standard stage 1 rears can be retrofitted later with reservoirs & compression & or rebound adjusters ?
My budget will only stretch to these at the moment but I might be able to upgrade them down the track if that's do-able. Anyone have any knowledge/experience with this ?

Happy trails..........

I have stage 1s on my utility quad, I was told that it could be upgraded but you might want to ask someone at elka directly about what the cost would be. Either way, stage 1 Elkas are surprisingly good

I ran stage 1 front Elka's and was told a remote resovoir upgrade kit was availible from Elka. There's also another company,can't remember the name but also do a remote resovoir kit. I think they advertise on Ebay.

Thanks Baxter, I'll check that out, can a shock technician add compression & rebound adjust, or is that something that needs to be built into the shocks from the start ?
Jmm24, I had Elka stage 2+ Reb. shocks on my 400ex for 4 years, they were set up so well from Elka that I never once in all that time felt the need to adjust them, so I'm thinking if the Rec stage 1 shocks were set-up equally as well then they would suit me fine, although adding the ressies would be nice. :-)

Happy trails..........

Pay the $200 extra and get the stage 1 + rebound. The rezzie kits add compression adjustment .
