Awesome thanks, I'm going with an extended swingarm, so I need all the springrate I can get.
ok thanks, i think i will try the vtr shock with the tw springJust got back from a 10 mile run or gravel roads. With the preload backed all the way off, the VTR1000 shock / spring set is perfect for unloaded cruising.
I realized that the preload was on #4, which is 1/2 the available preload - too much for my 230lbs with no cargo.
The stroke of the two shocks sitting side x side looks similar - I did not check swing arm travel with the spr
Thank ya, sirHey LittleTen,
Congrats on your successful shock mod!
Do you have any pics that show how this shock looks and fits on the TW? What are the benefits of the VTR shock over the stock TW one?
That sounds very interesting! Any pictures or info? Did you need to modify anything?I just finished the VTR shock mod on my T-Dub last night. Wow, What a difference! I can now sit on the seat with my feet comfortably flat on the ground. The bike squats maybe a half inch. Before the bike would squat about 1 1/2 to 2 inches with my 6' 250 lbs on it. I took it for a quick ride last night and it felt like a completely different bike. Between that and the heavier spring upgrade with emulators in the front forks, I think I've got it just how I want it.
I used the Honda VTR shock with the Honda VTR Spring just as I bought it off ebay. I did adjust the preload to the lowest preload setting. I haven't tried to change the rebound screw setting yet. It just seems to be so much better than stock for a fat kid riding it.Great job. Which spring did you use? I bought a blaster shock but decided not to use that one after reading more about the blaster shock mod. I may try the VTR mod, that one does sound good.
