1800c front shock

Post  Tater1800 on Mon Aug 18, 2008 8:24 pm

On an 03 1800C, I notice my front suspension bottoms out a lot. Either from lousy Ohio roads or a bit too much weight from the nut that holds the handlebars lol!

I know on the older bikes there was a schrader valve on top of the shocks to add a bit of air to stiffen up the suspension, give a little more ride height. But with the inverted front forks on the vtx, I dont now if that is possible. Anyone have any thoughts/expierence with this? I really dont want to take the shocks apart and rebuild them with diff springs or anything like that. Just trying to get a little more suspension travel. Thanks everyone.
