Yss suspension

YSS SHOCKS fitted at last!
Very impressed with the quality of these gas shocks. Only had about an hour ride with them today so will need to tweak them a little to match them to my weight! Definitely a huge upgrade on the originals and I can lower the bike a little if I want with the adjustment at the bottom end. (see photo)
they also do piggyback shocks if that's your thing, but I think they change the bobber look of the bike and are very eye catching for theft!

Fork upgrade kit to fit next weekend plus exhaust cone by Uk manufacturer

Just curious how you like the shocks and if you have seens any noticeable difference over the stock ones?
I am considering getting the piggy back version of these. To be honest the biggest reason being when I have a passenger you can def see a big difference in the stock shocks performance and they get kind of rough.

I've been running them for a few months myself and there is a definite improvement of stock. They are more stable and responsive no doubt. If you were going to ride two up you also have a much more adjustability to offset the extra rider. I personally don't ride with a passenger but with some preload and rebound tweaking they should handle it fine.

YSS shocks upgrade on my list of things to do as well now, they look just the ticket and would surely improve the ride.
