Part: Honda Factory-Style Rear Shocks for CB175 / CL175 / CB200 / CL200 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: The original rear shock absorbers on the CB175, CL175, and CB200 were modest at best, and after five decades, they're likely more than just squishy. For those who wish to maintain the vintage look of their Honda while upgrading its functionality, these factory-style shocks are the answer. Ideal for the CB200 and CL175, they feature a standard spring-preload adjuster and are designed to enhance the comfort and performance of your classic Honda twin.
Installation Tip: Apply bearing grease to lubricate the bushing for easier installation on the frame. Adjust the spring preload according to your weight and riding style. The shock should compress 20%-30% of its travel distance when the rider is seated. Remember to adjust the spring preload when carrying a passenger. The travel distance is measured from the bottom of the rubber bumper on the chrome shock tube to the top of the piston seal on the lower body tube.
