I've got Wilburs on my R1100RT and I had a WORKS shock on the K100RT. The Wilburs are vastly superior in every way. The materials and workmanship are really first class.
The WORKS shock was oversprung and underdamped. Two trips back to WORKS failed to remedy its poor performance. Maybe my experience was atypical, but there it is.
