  • Considering the Roadwing...

    I need some input here, considering swapping out the stock rear shock and installing the Roadwing, I installed the Barrons 900 lb spring on the stock shock several years ago and if I swap to the Roadwing, would probably try to find an RAP instead of the electric pump.
    My question is, can I expect to gain much by installing the Roadwing over the setup that I already have ? I'm wondering if the stock shock has lost it's gas charge because the dampening seems softer than it used to be, in which case the shock should be replaced anyway. But installing a high mileage Goldwing shock could eventually lead to the same problem, so I've been looking at a replacement shock that comes with the heavier spring and also has adjustable dampening. It's also a direct fit so that's a plus but it's also quite a bit more money.....thoughts ?

    Its better ride not as harsh and worth the $ going from heavier spring to road wing. Heavier spring is nice but no better rebound and ride quality...its a worthwhile mod

      I've had the stock shock with the stock spring, the stock shock with the 1000# eibech spring and now the Road wing. Road wing is by far the best option.
      My 1/2 pennies worth.

        Stop considering and get one. Should of been my first mod over any other mod that I had previously done or have made. 2nd was an ED seat. You wont regret it and go with manual rap nothing to wire up and install/bleed.

          Made decision to go for the roadwing. Hoping I can get one with the manual RAP and have it shipped up here to me in Ontario, Canada.
          Shot a message to Smokescreen to see if possible. On a wait list from a Bill Kingsley Jr. fellow on Facebook and was offered one within Canada but without the RAP.
          We shall see where this goes.

            You can purchase a rap and install it yourself, ebay, Kijiji. VERY simple procedure. I wont speak for Jason as to whether he can ship across the border, but with a national truck driver shortage you could be waiting a while.

          Well after finding out the cost of one of these suckers and the little amount I paid for my 2003. Its not cost effective.
          Going to swap out the spring only. Won't be as good as the roadwing set-up. But it will be far better than the 18 year spring that's on there now.

            If you don't replace the shock, we'll just have to give you a new nickname....Pogo!
