rear shock replacement
« on: February 16, 2017, 09:53:49 am »
I got a bent rear shock so I was looking to replace the both of them. A common gripe of the bike gurr-roos was that the factory rear shocks were inadequate on these bikes. I haven't ridden mine enough to form an opinion on that. Can anyone recommend a good aftermarket or maybe a shock from another bike that would fit? So far I found some from Emgo that will fit. Anything else? Thanks.

I'm not sure if you're still looking for shocks, but Progressive suspension still makes a few models that are designed for the vt500ft. I guess it shares the same suspension as a few other models as well. I believe a couple models that are good are 412-4220C and dimecity sells another model (412-4211C) that allegedly fits. amazon sells the former.
