I have found that most modern shocks have too much damping and spoil the soft ride of the Dragonfly. If you are lucky enough to have an early 'Fly, the original dampers can be dismantled and rebuilt with new seals and rods.

Hi Eddie firstly thank you for your reply,i think i have an early Dragonfly but not sure it has the frame number 1207, if it is an early one where would i be able to get them rebuilt with new seals and rods.

Regards Kevin..
