Bullet_wrench  Aftermarket Rear Shock?
Aftermarket Rear Shock?
I picked up a 2000 VStar 1100 Custom this last summer. It isn't a bad ride, but the back shock is mushy and I turned it all the way to its heaviest setting. I was considering an aftermarket shock, however the only ones listed on the usual parts sites are about $450. I can get shocks for my pickup for considerably less than that! Which made me stop and think. There has to be some "dark side" solutions here. Any suggestions? Perhaps like a small car shock?
