Probelm with OEM shocks ... looking for replacement.
I just bounght a '96 VN750, and I love it. Unfortunately, the rear shocks are giving me a headache. When I got the bike, the ride was soft, so I tried putting some air in them. That was a big mistake, with only 12 lbs. each, it was like riding a hardtail. I went over a few bumps and just about got thrown off the bike! Not to mention, I think the shocks are done for. They both squirted oil all over my hand-pump when I tried to put in the air.
I would like to replace them with Progressive shocks, but they are a little to rich for my blood. They don't have to be the Progressive brand, just something equal. I had a Vulcvan 500 once before, and I really liked the shocks on them. So something like that would be ideal.
Any ideas on how to make the OEM shocks work??? Does anyone know someone looking to sell a gently used set of progressive shocks to a fellow Vulcan rider?
Please let me know. I could really use the help.
