Thread: Rear Shock Modification

  1. Re: Rear Shock Modification

    I have just disassembled the shocks for my 1964 XLCH and discovered that one of the units is a leaker. I think the shocks are Monroe units. Does anyone know of a company that rebuilds these sealed units, or who might have a replacement shock to sell? These shocks are getting difficult to find.
    Thanks,
    Bill Pedalino

    As long as this thread has been revived, Fabe, I wonder if slot A is for the left shock, and slot B for the right or vice versa, to keep the adjuster orientation the same when looking at the bike from the side....

    That is the best reason I have heard yet.

    I do not know where replacement cartridges can be bought.

    I just checked mine. Both are set at "A". On the left side you can see the pin facing out and on the right the pin is facing in the same direction as the left so it is hidden from view. I bet you are right. Maybe Palmer's second edition will cover this interesting tidbit...

    Bill, did you find a supplier for that cartridge? The V-Twin ones seem to work just fine. You will only see the very bottom of the cartridge. No problems from my bike and as you can see this is an older thread.

    Any chance of getting the pictures back up? I need to do this to my shocks and pictures would help. Thanks
