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.
