  • roadwing for sale 3,000 miles on it.

    i found a good deal for the times so i jumped on it and can pass along some savings to you guys. i have a pump model on hand for $310 shipped to the continental USA. but can be upgraded to a rap if you want. the rap on average is $100 more.

    Jason, do you know if a roadwing will fit a Raider?

      i know the shock will as i bolted one into the raider links. but i dont know how you would route your hose and mount the pump/place the rap as i have never done it.

        LOL! I'll burn that bridge when I come to it.
        Just wanted to get an idea if it was longer/shorter/fatter than the stock one.

        Can't afford the upgrade right now anyway. Just gathering info for later.

        Thank you Smokes.

      Ok, you can't fart without reading Roadwing on this forum and I ended up on this forum initially while googling suspension but after 50 posts I still feel like I am not entirely certain of exactly what it is.

      Is it a shock, spring, just replacement adjustable shock?

      I'm pushing almost 300lb. and my wife isn't far off 200lb. Bike is an 06 Road Star and only has 3500 miles on it and surprisingly with loaded bags and my wife I only bottomed out once last weekend leaving a driveway. Still too soft for me and I was searching for just a stronger progressive rate spring for it but it seems like I need a Roadwing and I'm trying to figure out why lol

      Enlighten me

        shores pretty much hit the nail on the head. its a modified goldwing shock made to fit on the road star. the valving in the shock is much firmer as well as you get a good size bump up in the spring rate. preload is adjusted with a electric pump (standard) you would need to make a simple toggle switch harness to run the pump and mount the pump. or you can upgrade it to the manual rap. its easier to install takes just 2 or 3 fingers to turn the knob and is much more durable than the pump is. the pump can be bottomed out and broken if not carefull as it does not have travel limiters. its a easy fairly cheap repair however

      It’s a modified Goldwing shock that has a higher rated spring and a shock that eliminates “pogo” better than the stock shock. Smokescreens (Jason) modifies them. Preload, not height, is adjustable with either an electric pump or manual RAP. Send him a PM.
