    Some of us have looked at buying from UK.... believe that the frog visits this site and had Fournales tell at least one outlet in the UK that they were not allowed to ship to Oz.

    Here's a semi Aussie product, I say "semi" as the parent company is in Thailand.
    But the shocks he sells here are made just north of Adelaide, I bought a pair for my Thruxton at the start of the year, top notch gear imo.

    I have the RE-302T... pretty happy and good price. YSS is a Thai company and I think you will find that the product is made in Thailand to Australian specs..... well that is what I was told by Walter.
     

     

    Lookie her for details of YSS in Adelaide and distributors in Brissie and across the pond... www.yss.co.th/network_aust.php

    Guys, I own a HD parts and accessories business over here in the UK and I regularly ship to Oz.
    I am also an authorised Fournales reseller and despite a certain person allegedly having exclusive rights to the Australian teritory I fail to see how anyone can stop you ordering online from anywhere for delivery anywhere.
    The pricing in the table above from MAWS in the UK is a little out of date but it is close enough to give you an idea of what I can supply these shocks to you for.

    Just visit www.4hd.net and enter fournales in the search box and you will see the entire product range.
    Unfortunately my site only accepts GBP, USD or Euro for payment but we do give the best exchange rate available on the day.
    Shipping to Australia for a set of shocks is typically around the £35 mark for a 4 day service (which is usually delivered in 48 hours from past experience).
    I have a lot of customers in Aus and NZ and with over 500,000 product lines for Harleys, everything from show chrome nuts and bolts to complete kit bikes, I'm sure I have something you'll want :)
    If you can't find what you are looking for, just drop me an email via the website and I'll sort it out for you.

    Oh and as a little sweetener, if you register as a paid up member rather than a free member (i.e. take up a bronze or silver membership before you place an order) I'll boost your membership up to the next level for free. This offer will only run until December 16th 2011 and all you need to do is add a note to the comments box when you place your membership order saying something like "Guns told me to get my membership upgrade" and I'll sort it out for you.

    Ride safe

     Around $800 for a set of Magnums delivered to your door!.............half the price the frog will charge!!!!!!

    Well done Gun!!!

    But I'd be tempted to get in quick Fellas...............before the Frog jumps on this sweet deal as well!!!!!!!!!!

    The best shocks money can buy............for a reasonable price!!!

    Burto.

    You are very welcome chaps :)
    I fail to see how Fournales can accept Le Frog's terms for being the only disty in the area.
    Just had an enquiry from one member off here so hopefully we can hlp more people out before Le Frog causes problems lol

    The frog overcharges for them, my brief sad to say, absolutely ridiculous for a pair of shocks for a bike, especially some others that will do just as good as far less(My opinion).

    Have had Ikons & Progressive,Ohlins, and as for the price of fournalies, I really wonder if they are worth it compared to what you would pay for other items.

    I am a big fan of  ikon, had them on all my last three bikes and believe they make  A great product, progressive also very very good but can get expensive as you climb the chain of shocks(still cheaper than forurnalies)

    But really is the expense ( no harm intend to Fournalies believers or users.) of these shocks worth what they are, or is that they are advertised as landing gear to some planes & flash ads in magazines we all read ???????Does that make them available to be charged at ridiculous amounts?????? No Fnnnnn Way .

     

    My Opinion & I think I am entitled to it.

    Cheers

    I currently have the oleo pneumatic's on my bike & can honestly say without hesitation that it handles as well as a naked jap bike.
    Better in fact than the ZRX1200 Kawa i had recently.
    Having said all that, handling isn't everything, especially with a Harley so they will be for sale in the very near future if anyone is interested.

    Price fixing is illegal under the trade practices act, forget the section number but froggy might just be breaking the law by trying to monopalise the market !!!

    Do you see Myers or Harley Davidson or anyone else taking you to court for buying the same items on the internet from overseas. lol

    OK. 2012 was a good year, bought my last new Harley and pissed off the Mrs. drag me down anchor. Now got some Fornales from Bendigo swap meet, Magnum as in icecream , aluminium. #Looked on line but just wish to suss pressure, seem like a dickhead, but how the fuck do you adjust from Bar to bigger Bar. I like big Bar...keep cool.

    I had fournales shocks on a shovelhead when they first started, I never liked them, went to works performance shocks & liked them a lot better. only thing I liked about them was light weight

    I had them on my FLHT, 13", but now run them on my sporty.
    Expensive? Yes. The pump alone cost me $250. Do they work ok ... Yeah,they do.
    A good set of ohlins are around the 2 thou Mark.
    Would I buy another set? No.
    I don't think that you can beat the feel of a well set up air/oil shockie with a spring.
