I took my first long ride on my new to me 07. I liked almost everything about it but two things. The but stopper pushes me too far foreword. So I took it off. That solved the space issue but know I'm sitting on the metal bracket. I'm guessing I'll either remove it or maybe glue a pad to it.

My main issue is the rear suspension. We were riding two up so I dialed it up to number 5. It still bottomed out a lot and there was quite a lot of pogo like action. I was wondering if there is a way to adress this issue. Any after market rear shocks maybe?

Hey,

You may want to check out this link:

http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/hondasilverwings/message/64117

I found this picture on the site too:

Some on this site have added a 3/8" PVC spacer in the rear springs to help out. I have never done this but a few people I guess really say it helps. It sounds like a very easy mod and if you don't like it you can just remove it. If you do this please tell us how you like it and maybe take a few pics to show us how you did this. Good luck.

First how much weight are you putting on it? Calculate weight of rider and passenger, stuff you are carrying, accessories fuel---then check operator manual for load capacity. Overload? No shock/spring combo will overcome that-----I believe critical is rear tire, in hot weather/overload/under inflation---weakest point. Hitting shocks on bump stops a usual sign of overload. Be Careful and overload = funny and dangerous handling in my book---Brake capacity? 2007 not new, lots of miles, not overloaded, shocks/springs done?

This looks interesting. I could not tell from the pic where the spacer is located. Can one of you guys shed some more light on this mod for me.
