We have worked hard on the development of the new front and rear shock absorbers for the new Gold Wing.
From our preliminary testing the OEM rear shock is under damped and under sprung. The ride is harsh over anything other than smooth roads.
So we have designed the new rear shock to be more compliant over bumps and support loads better. Once again as with the previous generation Goldwing we have developed a suspension that will be more comfortable for both rider and passenger, support loads better and be more confidence inspiring.
The new Traxxion Goldwing shock comes with the damper unit, spring matched for rider/passenger’s weight, and steel braided line for the hydraulic preload adjuster.
The install is very labor intense and recommend by a professional mechanic.
***THE STEEL BRAIDED LINE IS INCLUDED WITH THE REAR SHOCK, IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PURCHASED THE REAR SHOCK PLEASE DO NOT BUY ANOTHER STEEL BRAIDED LINE***

One of the best mod’s I’ve performed for the bike. Installation was a pain due to the design of the bike but all in all went very well. The bike feels tighter, has less rocking on the highway and is more stable. Would highly recommend to other riders.
