Shock party

Ok so I think I'm going to buy a set of shocks for the LT with part of my tax return. I haven't decided which brand or from where yet. What I want to know it if there's anyone in the Reno, Nv. area that has done it that might like to get together and guild me. Will provide food and drink of course.

Re: Shock party

Just did mine not to long ago, if you can't find a tech session to help out drop a line I have some time saving tip's that I learned along the way its an involved process the first time you do it.

The supreme irony of life is that hardly anyone gets out of it alive.

Talking Re: Shock party

The Clymer manual walked me through it w/o a hitch. It even has a few pics.
It's not rocket science in my opinion.

Now as to which shock to choose is another thread.

Good luck.

Due to heart health, the Dr says not to ride under 40 degree air temp. Ugh! Now it is harder to get my 18000 miles a year in just in the summer. Guess that stopped my 20 degree rides now.
