Part: Ikon Rear Shock (Black Body / Black Spring) - Sold In Pairs
Why You Need This: Over the years we have tried our fair share of "performance" rear shocks for our Honda CL / CB350, CL / CJ / CB360, CL / CB450 & CB550's and none really seemed worth the investment. However, we met the folks from Ikon suspension and gave their shocks a test (over a 3000+ mile road trip). The rear shocks performed well beyond expectations and we were sold; a difference of night and day on our bikes. Simply put, Ikon rear shocks are the best rear shocks available on the market for the Honda CL / CB350, CL / CJ / CB360 or CL / CB450 & CB550. You better believe that all of us here are Common Motor are now running these Ikon rear shocks on our personal bikes as it has been the single best performance upgrade we have experienced to date.
Made in Australia, Ikon shocks trace their roots back to the old Koni motorcycle shocks from the golden days of racing. Ikon rear shocks are fully adjustable for rebound control as well as spring pre-load without clunky external reservoirs. Additionally the shocks are 100% rebuildable and supported by Ikon (unheard of these days) and Common Motor is an authorized Ikon service center.
The shocks have an appearance similar to the stock Honda shocks with other finish options available. Sold as a pair with black body and black spring; options such as chrome springs, chrome body and chrome caps are available as a special order for additional cost.
Ikon rear shocks will be the last set of shocks that you will ever buy for your Honda CL350, CB350; CL360, CJ360, CB360; CL450, CB450, CB500T or CB550 as a no regrets investment to the performance and handing of your motorcycle. You can compliment the front end handling of your bike by installing our tapered roller steering bearing kit.
Installation Tip: Shocks need to be set for rider sag, which is the distance the shock compresses when you are sitting on the bike. The shock's total travel is the distance from where the chrome piston exits the shock body to the larger rubber bumper just below the top mounting eye. The rule of thumb is about a 1/3 of the shock's travel needs to be compressed when you sit on the bike. Adjust the spring pre-load accordingly for the correct sag. Rebound adjustment needs to compliment the spring position, hence if the spring is on setting 3, the rebound needs to be set at 3 or 4. Spring position 2, then rebound 2 to 3 and so forth.
