Koestum

Coast to Coast
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.

ask over on the cx500forum.com there are a few that are direct bolt ins

i use a modified xvs1100 shock in my gl650
 
I used a Cbr600F4i shock on a client’s 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
