View Full Version : 11 inch short shocks

02-23-2010, 7:22 PM
anyone got some recommendations on where to get them for cheap? honestly, im not looking for some crazy performance set up right now (its going on my 1970 cb350) the old tired stock 13 incher's damn near bounce me off the seat every chance they get...need something lower and stiffer. i can use just standard universal ones correct? as long as the eye mounting points match up...

this bike is running a 11 inch in the rear, i doubt itll bottom out considering im running stock size tires and fender. i wont be lowering the front until later but hopefully it doesnt feel too funny up front.

I got some, they were on my '72 cb 500 that I'm bobbin' the chromes not in great shape, but they are the shorter than stock ones that everybody changes over to. The local bike shop wants $100.00 for a set of new ones, I'd hook you up with these for next to nothing.
