HONDA VTX 1800 biggest V-Twin

After my summer riding was time to have the bike serviced and for the second time that year I headed down to my mechanic. After talking in the shop for a while as they started to work on my bike I convinced the owner (or was it him that convinced me) to let me try a used Honda VTX 1800 he had just taken in.

Install VTX Shocks on The Supermagna

HONDA VTX SHOCK info/Installation Instructions Are there any options for new rear suspension? Yes. The shocks from the VTX 1300, 1800, and FAR are all bolt-on options to the Super. If you use any of these shocks as they are, they will lower the back of your bike a couple inches. In order to maintain stock height as much as possible, you will need to swap out the shock tops with those from the Super (You will need to make or borrow a spring compression tool to do this or have a dealer do it for you). Also, if you decide to use your new shocks as they are, you will need to slightly bend-out the leading edge of your grab rails in order to get the proper clearance.
