PostSubject: Tested new rear shocks   Tue May 06, 2014 2:25 pm

Ive had my new hagon rear shocks for about 3 weeks now and what a difference they have made.They only have 3 posistions on the preload settings I have mine on number 2.With this setting the bike now steers so much quicker it just seems more agile and is totally planted with very settled rebound.I went out to the elan valley on sunday just on by myself lets just say there were a few sports bike riders left wandering what had just happened.the best bit was when I got to the valley I had no aches or pains.also if I was on my hornet 900 I might of got dragged along by these group of guys .glad I was on the silverwing as I could play alittle then just relax back into my rhythm makes me more of a chilled out rider with nothing to prove unlike my hornet which I have a real job to ride slow.

did you go with the standard shocks or custom. I have a 2005 with 12000 miles. I am around 200lbs and will be at 400lbs rider weight when 2 up. what do you suggest?

Also love my Hagon shocks. . .that and HyperPro fork springs dramatically improved handling, especially in the corners.

When you order the shocks, Hagon should ask you how much weight you expect to carry and will fit the appropriate springs before shipping.
