Part: Ikon Rear Shocks for Honda CB750 K0 / CB750 K1 / CB750 K2 / CB750 K3 / CB750 K4 / CB750K5 / CB750F / CB750K / CB750A
Why You Need This: There is so much to love about vintage motorcycles, but there is also something to be said about advances in modern engineering. These Ikon rear shocks will dramatically improve the ride of your Honda CB750 K0-K5 / CB750F / CB750K. Many other shocks do not come close to the performance and quality of Ikon motorcycle shocks. We have even put in over 10,000 miles real world road testing (and still counting) on Ikon shocks and know for certain they are well worth the investment. You better believe that the crew here at CMC run Ikon shocks on our personal motorcycles.
Ikon rear shocks come in two different configurations:
Standard Fully Adjustable: These top of the line shocks feature a four-position rebound control (when the shock is returning to rest) as well as three-position spring pre-load without clunky external reservoirs. Available with black bodies with black spring or in chrome body with black spring.
Basic Adjustable: Built to the same quality standards as the Fully Adjustable shocks but they do not feature the rebound damping adjustment. Basic shocks do have a three-position spring pre-load adjustment.
Made in Australia, Ikon shocks trace their heritage 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 (unheard of these days) and Common Motor is an authorized Ikon service center.
The shocks have an appearance similar to the original stock Honda shocks with other finish options available.
Ikon shocks are a no-regrets investment for your motorcycle. These might very well be the last shocks you ever buy for your motorcycle. To further better your suspension, increase the front end handling of your bike by installing our tapered roller steering bearing kit.
Installation Tip: Shocks need to be set for each rider. Rider sag is the distance the shock compresses when you are sitting on the bike. 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 general rule of thumb is about a 1/4 to 1/3 of the shock's travel needs to be compressed when you sit on the bike. Use the included wrench to adjust the spring pre-load accordingly for the correct sag. Rebound adjustment needs to compliment the spring position, hence if the spring is on setting 3, the rebound needs to be set at 3 or 4. Spring position 2, then rebound 2 to 3 and so forth.
