Hi.
I'm looking into some aftermarket shocks for a Vespa PX disc brake model.
Not a fan of Bitubo as I had bad experience with them before.

Searching online brings up alot of obscure brands I've never heard of and I don't want to be a guinea pig to test it and not like it. I'd end buying something based on looks and not functionality.

Let me know what you're using and your impressions.
Thanks.

Using Pinasco's for the last few months. Well impressed so far. Reasonably priced (compared to some) at about 120 each.

I`m using YSS on my px done about 1000 miles on them now and they feel good,easily adjustable,haven`t tried any others so i can`t compare but these suit me fine.

+1 for YSS. I have the Mono E adjustable one on two of mine. Very happy with them both.

I have a SIP Performance 2.0 at the front and a YSS-E at the back, along with Clauss Studios bushings and top mount. I am very happy with both...

+ for yss e at back and sip at front.

Had the sip for awhile and changed the worn standard for yss at the back recently. Did an 800+ km trip and bike rides really nice.

I'll vouch for Carbone at the cheaper end of the scale.

Thanks for the replies guys. Extremely helpful.
I was unaware YSS even did PX suspension. I'll probably try those because I can source them factory direct in Thailand.

Much appreciated.

Just a quick update.
YSS have a new line for the PX that came out about 6 months ago.
I ended up getting the Eco line set over the Top line.
The difference is a softer spring and no dial to adjust the sump tank.
Only $300 USD for front and rear for the Eco and $650 for the top line front and rear. (Those prices you see are Thai baht in case you're wondering)
All the rubber top mounts and bushing are included.

They should be here by tomorrow so let's see.
