Default Tokico Blue for front no longer available

Been looking to install Tokico Blues on cruiser and everywhere I check today was either told the HB3195 front structs were no longer available or web site showed that they were no longer available.

Don't know what's going on, so has anyone got any recommendation for shocks after putting on lowering springs?

Try some KYB's they are a Japanese copy of Bilsteins. A very good shock!

Tokico HP Series (shocks and struts) [Part#: HB3195]

Fronts at this location, probably rears too

Will check by phone tomorrow to see if they actually have them. SCO and ACP auto parts showed they also have them on web site but after calling to make sure they both told me that they were no longer in stock.

Have you called to see if they shipped them or if they will? When I talked to SCO yesterday they told me they the HB3195 were no longer available.

If you can't get Tokiko's then KYB are a great choice.
I doubt that unless you are going to track you PT or do cone chasing on the week ends using the standard replacements units you could not feel or tell the performance between the two brands anyway? IMO KYB's offer a better overall damping and better adjustable package for handling when upgrading other suspension components.

^^ where did you ever read or hear this^^^^^
I can't begin to tell you how wrong this is!
You know better then this having been a former Auto Parts Store manager? And don't tell me you heard it in toques either.

I truly believe that some people should learn the facts before posting what they think or believe to be accurate information!




Just for other members reading this thread.....

KYB products are NOT copy of any other suspension company products!!



Here is the thread to both companies mentioned. Look up the design of each of them and that should be a good start to demonstrate the inaccuracy of the respondent in the quote above!
