I Can't & Won't spend what IKON s cost.
So why even bother posting your negative opinions without offering anything helpful to the conversation? Ikon is trying to do better and is the only shock company I've seen so far that is asking for our help to do so. Why post some anecdote about how you had a bad experience with shocks that were not made by Ikon without posting what the actual root cause of the failure was so that Ikon doesn't make the same mistake? :cheers:

Posted so you'll know that Oil filled shocks are adequate on a bike with more in common with a tractor than a racer, these MAY be located, & found to work - if you are inventive & look around. I WAS able to find great oil shocks for another application while others spent 5 times the price on Ikons.
I'm still using my 16 year old Russian oil shocks, When I need to replace them - I will take the trouble to hunt some up, then inform everyone of the results. Hopefully I will have encouraged some other rider to come up with a viable inexpensive solution - which might make my search easier.

I have an inexpensive solution for my 2017 cT, it is to stick with the stock Sachs shocks!

Sorry if my autistic post came across wrong, but it's certainly not MY shorts that are in a wad I'm just calling :bs: . From their website "Twin Tube Hydraulic Damper" "Rebuildable". I don't believe that the 7610's being discussed in this thread are gas charged. The 7614 series specifically enumerates "Gas charged" but the 7610's don't and the basix don't enumerate this either.

Are these shocks available now? I looked on iKon's website and I see the Ural application listed in one place but when you try to order I don't see anything. Has anyone installed a set? Any ride reports other than what is listed above?

With a year and approaching I suspect Rodger might be busy tidying up business requirements. The last test rider finished up this summer and I suspect but I'm not sure that the shocks were returned to Rodger. And just for the record the spelling of Rodger is not my choice. It is how Google apparently spells Rodger when you speak into your phone. Anyway... We learned that once again not all things Ural are the same. There was an interference in the fit up on the shock for my sidecar wheel, and we discovered another fit up issue on the rear swing arm with the last test rider. So Rodger has a little more work cut out for him with regards to a one-size-fits-all set of shocks. I also suspect that the Prototype shocks maybe coming back my way so I can spend more time with them and swap out Springs to see if there's an advantage of having different spring rates for the three different corners of the rig. If Rodger has time to visit the site and sees this post you'll probably chime in and let us know where things stand. As you can imagine running iKon USA keeps him pretty busy. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

I wrote Rodger x3 a couple month ago lto return the shocks but never heard back. Side tracked with work as the company I work for got bought out and was swamped in the transition. Walked into the shop and saw the box...figured I’d better jump back on it...

I saw on the European IKON site that they offer Shocks for Ural 08-12 now. They suggest to use article no. 7610-1664SP14 but they seem to be not available yet. Any news in your country?

GLAD I'm patient, & there is nothing wrong with my old shocks yet. Wonder if they're bone dry inside - they don't even leak.
Not complaining - or even unhappy. couldn't afford them anyway - IF they were even available for an 02..
