Just installed these shocks. They are quite a bit stiffer than the stock ones. First impression is I like. Will have to ride around a bit more to know if I really like them. I weigh in at 250 and the stock shocks just weren't cutting it for me. Price was right, 130.00 for the pair.:smile2: Ill get a pic of them on the bike when I get a chance. Also put a set of Metzeler 880's on.

looks like the same ones I got, except mine are black.. yea, a quite a bit stiffer than my old worn out ones.. I weight about 280 and the springs on the old ones where pretty much shot. the shocks were ok, but the springs didnt hold my butt up

Looks good. Makes me consider a black set...

Also, what's with the missing bolt? /curious

That's where the flux capacitor goes, it's on order...... Bolt hole is where the saddlebag supports mount. I just don't have them installed at the moment.

Made by Forsa, Taiwan. Sold by a company in Cincinatti Worst that can happen is they don't hold up and then I try something else. They seem pretty solid though. The tariff was only 749 cc.....
