GL500 Silverwing Air Shock Replacement?
« on: Oct 21, 2018, 23:46:59 »
Converting a GL500 to cafe with a GSXR front fork swap. Looking to replace the rear GL500 air shock with a suitable replacement coil shock.

Suggestions please? Thanks.

I used a Cbr600F4i shock on a clientís bike. Raised the rear a little. I had to turn up some spacers and make a mount for the remote reservoir.

He said it handled well and worked well even with a passenger.

Great, thanks. I did find a clean CBR600 shock for $35 the other day. Fitment is looking good so far.

Thanks guys 👍
