We recently completed two days of training on rebuilding ikon and Koni 7610 shock absorbers, and we are fully stocked with parts and factory tools for the purpose. We worked on a cool old pair of Koni 7610 we had on one of our project motorcycles, a 1979 Honda CBX motorcycle. This particular model of Koni shock has an aluminum body, and so it was further treated to a spa day in RestoCycle's vapor blast cabinet to refinish the aluminum.
Cool old aluminum bodied Koni shocks from a 1979 Honda CBX. An excellent candidate for rebuild, including a trip through RestoCycle's vapor blaster.
First step - careful disassembly, cleaning and inspection.
Removal of the main oring, prior to disassembly of the shock body.
Shock top eye, spring cup and clip, ready for cleaning and installation of new seals.
Factory tools, seal drivers, parts, fit both IKon and most Koni 7610 shock absorbers.
Aluminum parts freshly vapor blasted, ready to be dried and reassembled.
Done. 40 year old shock absorbers look and work like new, period correct bump stops, refinished bodies. Ready for another 40 years.
Shock rebuild service for Koni and Ikon 7610 shocks costs $125 per shock, and the basic rebuild service includes disassembly, cleaning and inspection, reassembly with new oil, seals and orings. Additional parts, new springs, or other refinishing services will be quoted once your shocks are in hand, disassembled and inspected.
Some older Koni shocks have unobtanium parts within and in some cases these cannot be rebuilt. If upon disassembly and inspection we determine that your shocks are not a candidate for service we will return or discard your shocks at your direction and a $75 service fee will apply, which can be applied to the purchase of a new pair of Ikon shocks.
