    Hi Smoke... I can confirm that I want one with a manual rap conversion. If they’re not spoken for, put me down for one of the good ones.

    Thanks for all the leg work on this. Please disregard my previous pm’s on this.

      ok you are the last new one. the prices i gave are pump models. raps are extra (about $100) but can be done now or later

    Time for me to pull the trigger, put me down for one if there is still one available.

      another update. im not 100% sure i have enough interest to buy every shock he has on hand but i have enough to negotiate trying to keep the price about the same if not the same. also he may have a few raps i can use and that would give me some more negotiating power. i seen pictures of 7 of them the other two are still on bikes but he can get them pulled if i need them. 5 look to be in almost new condition. the other two i would still run them but the shock bodies are corroded as they do being exposed to the elements and road debris. i should/hope to have made a deal and paid for all the shocks and raps i can today.

        no update yet guys. he was slammed with customers all day and did not get a chance to check inventory for us. i knownit would be faster if i got he shocks from him and got the raps elsewhere but if he has them it should be a savings for you guys for your patients.

          good evening everyone. i have spoken with the guy and he does not have any raps for us. so i will source those elsewhere. out of the 7 in the picture he sent i would not hesitate to install 6 of them and ride across the country. one of the 6 has surface corrosion but should still last years to come. the 7th has no hose on it so i would need to check the seal on that one before anything.

          that being said he does still have two wings to pull apart but i have no idea what those shocks look like. we agreed on a price and while its not cheaper im not buying all 9 but i was able to keep the cost the same.

          you guys have first dibs on these shocks. i will need payment from at least most of you guys before i buy the lot of shocks however.

            I’m super excited. I’ve always wanted to do this mod since my first Road*.
            Suspension is net number one priority for me.

            While I’m on this, anyone know a good way to raise the suspension a little?

              if your talking the rear it will sit a little taller because of the spring. for the front you can add some preload or upgrade your fork springs.

          • #29
            My front springs are progressive (non-lowered) with 6.5” of preload. I’d put more but would like to know the max amount before I do and have never been able find that info.
            My rear is a Progressive 465 w/o RAP.
            I find the 465, though a big improvement over stock still lacks travel and could be better overall.
            I have the preload even a little past the recommended max.
            The progressives in the front honestly, I don’t find is that much an improvement. The bike still dips hard and isn’t really all that progressive feeling.
            Im only just under 200lbs but as can be seen in my pics, I have a fair amount of extra weight on the bike.

              racetech springs would be better as they dont start super soft. race tech has straight weight springs of different spring rates. those would give you what your after. but you can also drill and tap your fork caps and put a Schrader valve in them and add few psi to the inside of the fork tubes (like 1,2,3 psi kinda few)

              How much does it raise the rear of the bike?

                maybe a inch or so. also depends on how much preload you run.

                ok thank you for letting me know. may i ask is it because it lifts the bike?

            • #33
              Oh yes!!! I’ll tale that inch (that’s what she said). I love my lean angle and wouldn’t part with a fraction of an inch.

                  I installed my Roadwing on my Flipped Relay with minor extra grinding 3 years and 35,000 miles ago . No problems and I'm 2" lowered at the rear . I also have #95 RaceTech Springs and Gold Emulators in the front .

              • #35
                down to the last shock available. all people who have shown interest before the purchase have had the opertunity to pass or purchase.

                  Looks like wifey doesn't need to get angry at you for spending the grocery money!!

                  I'll be looking for a roadwing this winter (as I mentioned earlier in this post). Keep your eyes peeled around then. For now I'm enjoying that racetech life.

                i have one roadwing available as a pump model ready to go. if you want it as a rap model i would just need to order a rap.
