Just a quick Thank you! To whoever it was who posted the link to the set of Hagon shocks on eBay UK. I contacted the seller Sam a really nice guy from Worksop he assured me they had been used for two trips before he removed them to sell the bike.
They turned up today and are like new!
In the package he included some rubber covers so that I can remove the top bolts without stripping the bikes plastics off.
Has anybody else ever done the shocks this way and if so where do I cut the holes?

If you do a search using "shocks" as the search term, you will find a post by john&lesley under "pictorials and maintenance" showing how to drill the holes to get to the upper shock bolts. You don't have to remove any bodywork to remove the stock and install the Hagon shocks though.

Here is a link to a post I made awhile back regarding Hagon as well as other aftermarket shocks:

I decided to strip the back of the bike to fit the Hagon shocks yesterday. There wasn't too much to take off and the new shocks fitted easily. I wanted to take everything apart because I had noticed a couple loose nuts holding the lower luggage compartment at the front and the centre catch wasn't working very well. When it was all apart I cut two holes in the sides of the luggage compartment big enough to fit the bolts and washers through I fitted in blanking washers which I sealed into place with Black flexible gutter sealant and then reassembled everything. When i had almost finished I found I had two 12mm nuts left over that I couldn't identify and had definitely not taken off! The only thing that fitted the nuts were the bolts to hold the rack on! Doh! I hadn't realised that two of the bolts on the rear upper frame had captivated nuts in that could fall out!
I went for a 100 mile trip with my son pillion today and I was amazed at how much better the scooter felt especially on corners!
I also took out the K&N filter and replaced it with a standard filter and the original plugs which I replaced with Iridium ones. Got to do an oil change tomorrow and the final drive!

I wanted to fit Hyperpro springs at the front but can't get them at the moment because Hyperpro are on holiday for for two weeks and they have two weeks of back orders as well.

I can't thank all the people on this site enough for all the useful information that Ive managed to find on here.
