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.

Measured Dimensions:

  • Eyelet to Clevis Eyelet: 12.59" (320 mm)
  • Upper eyelet ID: 0.875" (22.2 mm)
  • Upper eyelet width: 0.6875" (17.5 mm)
  • Clevis inside width: 0.875" (22.2 mm)
  • Clevis bolt thread: M10 x 1.25

Shocks are awesome. I’m 300#, so the stock shocks were like pogo sticks. These are on the lower setting they arrived set to and they have completely transformed my bike, a 71 CL350. No modifications were necessary for the CL exhaust for mine.

Looks great
Shocks look great, however they make the rear sit about an inch higher, the spring diameter is bigger than factory. Had to bend a freshly powder coated chain guard. 1975 cb360t

These shocks look great on my 74' CL450 and feel even better. Really good support and easy to install. 10/10 would recommend.

These springs significantly improved how my 1975 CB550 handled. The video on the common motor site completely convinced me to swap out my originals and I’m so glad I did. It’s almost like I have a new bike! As always they shipped fairly quickly and were exactly as described. I’m a totally loyal customer now.
