Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Solved Rear shocks

Post by Ingah on Wed 18 May 2011, 8:19 pm

I'm looking for replacement rear shocks for my CB. Some pretty new/not very used ones ideally, as mine, whilst damping OK when checked by hand, don't really seem to do a good job on the local bumpy roads (think pogo stick). My bike's got over 53K on it though, so this is hardly surprising...

Let me know.

If your going to be keeping the bike for a little while it's probably worth replaceing the rear shocks with a new set of Hagons. You can get them online, delivered, for £130 and they are easy to replace and will improve your ride. They tent to get good reviews from people who have fitted them, including on this site. They also look good. If course this depends on whether you have or can get £130 to blow.

Bit the bullet and bought the Hagons. Will be fitting them any day now but i won't be able to provide an honest review because the old ones give such a bad ride, anything halfway decent will be a revolution!
