848 Evo shock corrosion issues
Ive been looking at getting an 848 Evo.
Had a 1098S but had issues with starting and clutch overheating so sold it for a GSXR 1000 which was fast but didnt like to stop. And didnt look or sound like a Ducati so ive sold it.
Ive looked at 3 848s. None had a hugger fitted, all were describes as 'like new' or 'excellent condition' but all had corrosion on the bottom rose joint for the ride height adjuster and all had issues on the shock body or the adjuster in the center of the reservoir.
Is this a common thing on the Showa suspension? One i looked at has new forks replaced under warranty.
Im sufficiently concerned to have halted my persuit of one for now.
Anyone else got any issues?
