I want to put new shocks on my CB450. I dont intend on racing so I dont need real high dollar ones I dont think but would like to hear what others have used for daily riders.

Redwing shocks are readily available on Ebay and from what I understand they're an improvement over stock. Anything would be. Search Ebay with "redwing shock" and click the box to also search the description.

Of course there's always Koni, Mulholland/Boge, Works, and others. $$$$$$$$ :shock:

Thanks, for the most part I am very thrifty. My wife has other words to describe it but what the heck does she know. That being said I want to spend the amount of money that gets me good shocks and improves the handling. If I need to pay for Progressives or some other expensive brand I will but this is a bike I dont push too hard but will be riding a lot.
I have seen the shocks you are talking about and they look good.
If they are a good deal I may buy a set for my 350's too. My Scrambler feels like I am riding a pogo stick at times. :eek:
I never get over 45 on that bike for some reason, usually blast through the gears and settle in at 45 to 50.

I think I am going out for a ride. :p

Here is one variety of shocks available on Ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/300mm-Ne ... 240%3A1318

By searching "redwing shocks" and clicking on the "search item description" box I found several. I can't vouch for their quality though. At least they'd be new I guess. Be aware that they do offer them in different lengths. 300 and 330mm is what I've seen so far.

On a side note, my old laptop is acting up again. It's taken me about 30 minutes to wait for this thread to appear before I could type a reply, so I may be gone again until I can get this crap figured out! DAMN! :evil: :cry:

They tend to be a little "stiff" riding at first, but are better than old stockers by a bunch... I have some used eye-to-eye ones, but you'll need eye-to-clevis for the Honda......

Here they are on my 72 CB 350K. Can't complain about the price but you get what you pay for. They are stiff even adjusted to the lowest setting.
2 questions.......1. Can stock shocks be rebuilt? If so is it even worth it....would like to know before i toss my old ones.
2. What exhaust pipes are on the cb350 above?
