Part: Ikon Rear Shock for Honda CB350 / CB360 / CB450 / CB550 motorcycles

Note: Sold as a Pair. You will receive two shocks: one for the left side and one for the right side.

Why You Need This: Over the years, we have tried our fair share of "performance" rear shocks for our Honda CL350 / CB350, CL360 / CJ360 / CB360, and CL450 / CB450 & CB550, but none really seemed worth the investment until we tried Ikon suspension. After testing these shocks for over 10,000 cumulative miles on several road trips, we found that the Ikon rear shocks performed well beyond our expectations. They made a night-and-day difference on our bikes. Simply put, Ikon rear shocks are the best available for the Honda CL350 / CB350, CL360 / CJ360 / CB360, and CL450 / CB450 & CB550. All of us here at 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.

Ikon rear shocks come in two different styles:

Standard Fully Adjustable: These top-of-the-line shocks feature a four-position rebound control (when the shock is returning to rest) and a three-position spring pre-load, all without clunky external reservoirs. Available in black bodies with black springs, or in chrome bodies with black springs.

Basic Adjustable: These are great quality shocks for the money. Built to the same quality standards as the Fully Adjustable shocks, they do not feature the rebound damping adjustment but do have a three-position spring pre-load adjustment.

Made in Australia, Ikon shocks trace their roots back to the old Koni motorcycle shocks from the golden days of racing. All models of Ikon shocks are 100% rebuildable and supported by Ikon and Common Motor, an authorized Ikon service center.

The shocks have an appearance similar to the stock Honda shocks, with other finish options available.

Ikon rear shocks are a no-regrets investment for your Honda CL350, CB350, CL360, CJ360, CB360, CL450, CB450, CB500T, or CB550, improving the performance and handling of your motorcycle. Complement 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 third 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 complement the spring position, hence if the spring is on setting 3, the rebound needs to be set at 3 or 4. For spring position 2, then rebound 2 to 3, and so forth.

Huge ride improvement for my CL350s
I just bought my second set of these fully adjustable Ikon shocks. It has been the biggest improvement in ride and handling for both my CL350s. Although they're not cheap, they are worth every penny. You can take bumps and pot holes on without compressing your damn spine.

Fantastic
Fantastic shock to replace my original shocks from the 70s. Easy to put on my CB550 77 and fit great, can't wait to try them out on an extended trip! Thanks for turning me on to Ikon

Just Do It
If you're reading this, you are at the threshold of an amazing experience. Until you bolt on these ikon shocks, you have never really understood your 70's era Honda. Like at all. You have been wallowing and pogoing around town, making a game of missing the bumps that remind you that motorcycles used to demand a lot of discomfort in order to have fun. BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIFE LIKE THAT ANYMORE! These shocks are a total game changer. Join the ranks of those who actually know how much more fun/comfortable/safe these bikes can be with ikons. Or take the blue pill, and wipe this terrible knowledge from your memory, going back to ignorant bliss. Buy them. No way you'll be disappointed.

Worth the price
The difference between these IKON shocks and the stock 46 year old OEMs on my 74 550 are like Night and Day. Spend the money and make your Motorcycle so much better and comfortable to ride

Great shocks!
I love these shocks! They made a huge change to the ride quality of my 1973 CB450. The old shocks used to try and throw me off the bike but these eliminate that feeling with adjustable rebound. Highly recommend.
