Shortened Shocks


Recommended Posts

It's time for new shocks on my 07 RT. If I get lower shocks will handling, comfort or anything else change, apart from being able to flat foot it?


Thanks, R.

Suspension travel will be altered. Initial suspension drop when loaded is usually reduced though because of the correct spring load being applied to the new shock design. I lowered my GS approximately 2" with a Wilburs setup last year....

Love 'em.... Better handling, more comfortable, and although I still cannot flat foot the bike, it comes a lot closer...

Have a good suspension setup guru do the calculations and help you do initial setup... It's well worth the price of admission.... :thumbsup:

With the common lowering of 1 to 2" handling and comfort will not change much. Keep in mind you'll have to modify the stands to make them work.
