    It happens. I waited 7 weeks for my Ikon shocks. Like Elka, they produce shocks for many different makes and models of vehicles, and if you have just missed a Spyder production run, you just have to wait. Wilbers have a 6 - 8 week lead time at the moment, unless you are lucky enough to find a dealer who still has a set lying around. You’ll appreciate them even more when they arrive.

    I ordered a rear Elka shock and after 9 weeks I called for status. Still no due date so I canceled and burnt my $$$ on heli-bars instead.

    We have a pretty good stock of Elkas in hand now. Special orders will be 6 to 8 weeks or more. We just got our April orders in. We may have what you're looking for in stock now.

    It’s snowmobile racing season soon! They were a small crew to begin with before bought out. The new company is suppose to be faster now. 6 weeks is not uncommon actually that’s great!. Anyone racing sleds right now has already placed their orders for the 2022 seasons and that’s multiple sets. Not uncommon this time of year. Take in aluminum shortage and parts delay. Spyders are not even close their top 5 shocks. Wrong time to order. I’d say May- July is the best time. Look at trailers right now. A custom aluminum trailer is 6 months everywhere from Michigan to New Hampshire. No aluminum and no dexter parts.

    I ordered directly from Elka last Friday (10/15). They told me the lead time is 14-16 weeks. I cancelled that order and reordered from Lamonster Garage and they will have them on my door step by Thursday (10/21) and about $75 less.

    just placed an order with lamonster garage for front and rear Elka's for our 2020 RT's. Had a heck of a time (payment), probably due to recent geological relocations! Hoping for a day here and there without major downpours, if not we'll wait for spring/summer. Can't complain, it's really green up here..

    I just replaced all 3 on my RTL. Front two were easy to swap. That rear one requires you to remove the side panels to get to the bolts. It's not hard, just time consuming.

    Default Elka Suspension wait time

    Anyone else waiting on their Elka suspension order? I’ve been waiting 13 weeks, 4 days….it’s getting excruciating given the riding season will soon be coming to an end. LOL

    It's not just Elkas. I'm having to wait 8-9 weeks to get a left handle control module for my 2018 RT. It's that global supply crisis that's messing everything up.
