I've got a Hagon. It's good, much better than OE. Had it on for 25k and it's still good. Not tried YSS, so can't say.

This is what i put on mine. It's a Shock Factory M-shock, they're custom built to weight and riding style, 2 year unlimited mileage warranty, fully rebuildable and massively better than the original. They're £350 delivered

I bought a refurbed original off an old member of this site, still serving me well.

 my original shock was mint with less than 10k miles and worked ok solo, but 2 up or loaded with camping gear the damping couldn't cope and it would wallow horribly even on smooth roads.

With your budget in mind. Hagon all day long.
