Part: Honda CB350 / CB360 / CB450 / CB550 Heavy-Duty Rear Shocks
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: Are the original rear shocks on your Honda CB or CL scrambler as spongy as a marshmallow? Add 40 years of neglect, and you're in for a bumpy ride. Our heavy-duty rear shocks will keep your back tire firmly on the ground, a must for any show bike or vintage Honda Scrambler or CB back on the road.
These shocks have stiffer springs than factory style shocks, making them ideal for heavier riders (over 200 lbs / 90 kg), extra passengers, or when carrying luggage/cargo. While they fit CB350 / CL350 / CB360 / CJ360 / CL360 scramblers, they are especially recommended for heavier CB450 / CL450 / CB500T and CB550 bikes. The right shocks depend on the balance of bike/rider/cargo weight, so choose accordingly.
Exclusive to Common Motor, these heavy-duty rear shocks have a 320 mm eye to clevis distance and a spring rate more appropriate for these mid-sized Hondas than many generic shocks. Available in chrome body with chrome spring, black body with chrome spring, and black body with black springs, they have four pre-load spring settings and come with performance vinyl bushings. Upgrading your rear shocks will significantly improve your bike's handling. Pair with fresh fork seals for optimal suspension performance.
Installation Tip: Adjust your exhaust and/or pipes for proper clearance, as these shock springs are larger in diameter than stock ones. The chain guard may also need slight adjustment. Included with each order are two pieces of clear braided vinyl tubing for the upper bushings. Remove the existing black rubber bushing, install the vinyl bushing, and lubricate it with bearing grease. Use the shim washer inside the lower clevis when installing the lower bolt.
