  • roadwing group buy?

    found a guy who has maybe 10 gl1800 shocks in good shape. im waiting to hear back on confirming the condition and price if i were to snatch them all up. im trying to bring back the days of cheap wings or at least way cheaper that todays prices.

    if i could get them under $300 to your door for a pump model whos in? you can upgrade to a rap if you want but for a starting price i would love to get a group of them out for under $300 if possible. maube even $250 if im lucky.

      It's something that's been on my wishlist. In the process of doing some racetechs right now. Just got new tires too.

      Moving at the end of the month Gonna be a while before I throw more $$ at the bike. But I hope to snag a road wing, probably this winter when I'll have to put the bike away for a few months.

      I know that's a ways off, but that's where my head is at if that's useful.

            I totally agree And I don't feel like my life is missing something. I think billions of people would disagree with me though. I can take it!

            Every time I go to any of the Roadstar facebook groups I am sorry I did. I stay away from social media entirely unless I need something real bad and can't find it anywhere else. The people and the attitudes on those groups are unreal. Not to mention the amount of false info flying around. Besides I get all the computer entertainment I need from reading through these forums.

            I put a post on facebook early in the week on this (Monday, I think), directing them to this thread. All kinds of people there are still asking about roadwings. I'm surprised all of this lot hasnt been sold yet. And yes, the FB group is frustrating at times.

          Just took a ride on my 2009 today and enjoyed the Roadwing, great upgrade.

            Way to go Jason. For anyone who hasn't done it, Roadwings are a MUST on all R*s. Best money you can spend on your bike. BTW, That price is great too.

                  Smokescreens, do you have a line on just the raps? I have the pump with the switch at the moment, mounted switch to my left side cover. While working on the bike last week I dropped the side cover and ripped all 3 wires off the switch. Not sure which goes where+ the backside of switch is badly corroded so I'm thinking it might be time to upgrade to the rap. After reading how much you all seem to love them. I have seen Burgman shocks and raps on ebay super cheap and was told by someone that the rap is the same. Do you happen to know if thats true? Or where I could find 1 that does work?

                    the burgman rap will work just fine. its just a pain in the butt to bleed, lol.

                    i like the ones from bmw motorcycles. small enough to hide if you want, easy to turn and easy to bleed.

                      Any bmw shock rap will work or is there a specific 1 I should be looking for?

                        lol. yup, got to do that today. with the clinic going down for those few days i put it off.

                    • #14
                      talked to the guy today he has 9 shocks up for grabs. i cant get the prices down as much as i would like but down a little bit at least. 3 are supposed to be in real nice shape. the other 6 are claimed to be in decent shape (waiting on pics)

                      the 3 that are supposed to be pull offs will be $350 to you guys. the other 6 will be $300 to you guys.

                      these are continental USA shipping and pump models. rap upgrades are available as well as international shipping for a fee.

                          those are the converted and shipped prices for pump models. raps are about $100 more.
