Part: Honda CB350 / CB360 / CB450 / CB550 Factory Style 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: If your original Honda shock absorbers are feeling more like pogo sticks after 40 years, it's time for an upgrade. Our factory-style shocks are designed to replace the worn-out dampers on your CL350 Scrambler / CB350 / CL360 Scrambler / CJ360 / CB360 / CL450 Scrambler / CB450 / CB500T / CB550. With standard spring-preload adjusters, these shocks not only look factory-correct but also significantly enhance ride quality. Combine these with a fork oil change and some fresh fork seals, and your ride will be smooth and stable.
For heavier riders or those seeking further suspension enhancements, consider our Heavy Duty Shock Absorbers, or the fully adjustable and rebuildable Ikon Performance Shocks.
Installation Tip: Remove the metal spacer from the upper rubber bushing as it's not needed. Lubricate the rubber bushing with bearing grease for easier installation on the frame mount. Adjust the spring preload, particularly when carrying a passenger. The shock should compress by 20 to 30% of its travel distance under load. Measure the travel distance from the bottom of the rubber bumper on the chrome shock tube to the piston seal on the lower body tube.
