Rear Shock Interchangablity

Could a rear shock from a 999 or 1098 fit without modding on a 996? I ask because the 999 rear shock looks similar to the 996

Not so much for the 1098. Pretty sure by the looks of it the 1098 won't work but I'd like to know if the 999 will on the 996.My understanding is no it won't fit. You should look for a 748/916/996/998 shock.,,

Slight trace of oil at the bottom of rear air shock


Hi it could be the seal in the shock. These are air assisted shocks not just air. If the leak is not too bad leave it alone otherwise you may need to replace the whole shock. Regards Jim...

How to change the rear shocks on a 2008 flhrse?


Raise the rear wheel off the ground and then with a no loss air pump apply more pressure to force any oil down the lines into the shocks, then release all air pressure and press the air line fitting collar in and disconnect the lines. THEN remove the upper shock mounting bolt and lockwasher and flat washer and then remove the lower shock mounting bolt and lockwasher and flat washer and remove the shock absorber assembly from the motorcycle. BUT do not lay it down as the oil will leak out and cannot be replaced so the shock would then be garbage. You could remove the air line fitting and plug the hole with a 1/8 NPT thread plug if the shock is to be retained and stored or etc.

Rear shock


You would probably be better off sending your failing unit to "Maxton" for a refurb, The biggest problem with finding a monoshock that is right for your bike is the coil and damping settings, not to mention the eye end fittings. Motorcycle monoshocks are designed to fit and work with a specific geometry of linkages. While you may find one the correct size, it may not work properly with the linage setup on your bike. And the only thing keeping your tyres on the road is the suspension. I hope this helps. If you do find one will you let me know please. When you are looking you will need to measure the mounting holes, the length of the unit and the width of the unit, if it is too fat it could catch in the very cramped area under the seat.

How do i adjust the rear shocks to a lower setting?


If you'll look at the lower end of the shock at the piece the spring sits on, you'll see that there are "steps" in that piece and a "tab" welded to the body of the shock. You turn the lower piece by gripping it using the holes around the part. You need a special tool to do this with. It looks similar to a large pair of pliers with ends that fit into these holes. Any dealer will have a set and should be willing to adjust your shocks.

Good Luck

you have the wrong shocks - they are not for your vehicle. The only way they break the bolts, is if they are too long for the car - and are not able to collapse enough.

Hi there. To upgrade your old rear shock is a good idea, however very expensive. Makers like Koni, and Ohlins, will have a rear shock to fit your bike, but unless your willing to part with about $1000, then considermy second solution. Have your old rear shock re built, or re furbished, by a qualified suspension mechanic, for a fraction of the cost. It is also possible to customise, and taylor your old shocky to suit you. Example,shorten the spring?, add a spacer to stiffen it up a bit, less oil, or more oil?
I would look into a rebuild first, unless, like i say, you are prepared to spend about $1000 plus.
Anything you choose, will definately enhance your bike.
Good luck

My problam is my hight


Hello, Most all motorcycles with Shocks have an Adjustment on the "Bottom" of the Shock which makes the Shock "Firmer or Softer". By making the Shock "Softer" (Lowering it) will Lower the Bike when you sit on it. Making it "Firmer" (raising it) will make it Higher. The Firmest/Tallest Position on the Shock is usually best for riding Two Adults so that the Weight doesn't let the Rear Fender drop onto the Rotating Rear Tire. You can also Measure the Length of your Shock (Measured from Center to Center of the Mounting Bolts) and go to your Local Motorcycle Salvage Yard and buy a Pair of Shocks that will be 1"-2" Shorter and Make Sure that they are from a Bike that is Similar in Weight and Size! (You don't want to put a set of 125cc Shocks on a 900cc bike) but Please check your Rear Fender Cleareance First and make sure that you can lower the bike this much!!! Most of the Motorcycles that I Lower, I Never go more than 2" unless I am Positive that I have the "Clearence"!!! Thanks Azharleybob

Hello there: I wonder if I can replace the rear shock of my XR 600R 1992 with a XR 650R 2002 rear shock. Cant find any information about the full lenght of either? Thanks in advance guys. Cheers.


Hi Manolo,

with regard to your question, YES, you may use an OEM rear shock from an 02 XR 650f to your 1992 XR600. Both models have the same link type ro it should fit perfectly.note the placing though, you may need larger bushing to fit the shocks.

hope this helps. if you have other questions, please let me know.

regards,

voodoo

Any way to adjust the rear shocks on a 1996 vulcan 1500-a10 ?


dear susan shock adjustment for the rear shock are done with c wrench. you will notice at the top of the shocks there is a ring with 3 adjustment cams. the wrench is placed in the two holes you see on the shock opposite each other this is where the wrench fits you simply turn either direction for softer or harder ride. this adjustment puts more or less tension on the spring. i own a 96 vulcan as well hope this will help you jim
