  • Used shock absorber

    My XV 1700 needs a new shock absorber because it is broken. I could get a used one very cheap. It's dry but 20 years and 40.000 miles old. Is that a problem? Are problems known or is it ok to try?

    The stock shock was weak when new. Be a waste of money to buy a used one. People here recommend a Roadwing shock. It's a hybrid, a shock from a Goldwing made to fit the Roadstar. You can build your own or get one from one of our RSC members that's ready to mount.

      I don't ride two up often but we have been more lately. Yesterday we both felt like we had some compressed vertebrae when we got home. I'm going the Roadwing route finally. I asked her when we got home if I should buy one, she said no she's never getting on it again....lol.

        Call her bluff! Remove the passenger seat and enjoy your freedom!

        The R* looks best with a solo seat anyway.

      What would the price be (approximately) for a ready mounted? In which Subforumcan this RSC members be found?
