ATV and SXS Service Pricing

Attention Please: We receive a TON of inquiries for configuration changes. Elka shocks are each built for the setup they are originally installed. There is a lot of time invested in determining current shock setup and the changes required for different model bikes and sometimes end up too expensive to justify completing the work. We are implementing an $85 charge for the research needed. If the job is completed, the fee will be wrapped into the invoice as a no-charge item. If the customer decides to not proceed because the eBay deal turns out to not be as good as originally thought, the charge will help us cover the shop time spent on the research. Thanks for your understanding.

Shock Maintenance

A well-maintained shock absorber will last longer and perform better. For cleaning, use a gentle detergent and pay particular attention to areas where debris can become lodged. Do not use any abrasive cleaning products.

Maintenance frequency may vary depending on the number of hours the vehicle is driven and the conditions under which it is ridden. Heat, violent impacts, dust, mud and adjustment settings are all factors that need to be taken into consideration in determining the frequency of basic maintenance and oil changes. Elka Suspension recommends sending your shock absorbers to our Factory Service Department for your maintenance requirements and oil changes.

Please refer to the Owner's manual for complete cleaning and maintenance procedures or more information.


1 - Do not use compressed air when cleaning the seal head as this can damage the seals.

2 - Clean the threads under the preload ring using a soft brush.

3 - Clean around the rebound adjustment knob so that no foreign particles damage the adjustment mechanism.

4 - Remove the compression adjustment knob by unscrewing the Allen type setscrew and pulling on the knob carefully then clean delicately.

5 - Use compressed air to clean beneath the bottom out bumper.
