I think that because of the co$t, he didn't buy shocks and modified his own!

Glad I'm not the only one that that post didn't make sense... I was beginning to wonder if the one good brain cell I got left was beginning to fade fast...

You can adjust the stock shocks up a couple of notches and will help the bike quite a bit. I had a problem with my bike bottoming out on speed bumps and 2-up riding. I set the shocks up a couple of notches and fixed it. Plus the bike handles alot better.

Yup, that's just setting the pre-load on the springs, I get that but other than that, the only other thing you can do is change out the springs and if your gunna go that far might as well get a decent set of shocks instead of the POS shocks that come with these bikes...

Well did I make a mess out of my 2nd thread. I did not mean to post this yet. Computer went on the blink. I had pictures of the shocks, but they are on the other computer. So I'm sorry it didn't make sense. I can't download my pictures yet either. I'll try to get the pictures on here . All i did was take the shocks apart and power coated the crome part with wrinkle finish. I just thought I would ask your thoughts about them.
