Shorter Rear CX500 Deluxe Shocks

Postby Stones » Sun Nov 07, 2010 6:37 pm

Sorry Folks
I know many of you must have seen these post all over the internet on different forums, but I've never been able to find a definitive answer.
My girlfriend is a new owner of 1980 CX500 Deluxe :D The only problem is she's a little vertically challenged :D (She's short) and has a problem touching the ground. I asked about trimming some foam out of the seat but she wants to try fitting shorter shocks first.

Does anyone know of maybe 11"-11" half inch shocks that work on these bikes??

Check out the customization section on CC's site.I'm sure people have used shorter shocks, ... fications/

Also you can slack off the locking on the front forks braces and allowing them up a high as they will go.Also I know a girl rider who has had blocks/extra thick soles fitted to her riding boots so she can ride her GSXR.
