Hey, BW, very nice write-up! These are the stock GL1100 shocks, correct? Where did you get the replacement springs from, and do you have a PN? I can't seem to find them listed on Progressive's website. Any help would be appreciated!

Good wrenchin'

You can email Progressive or google the parts. The key part of the number is 1170. http://www.bikebandit.com/progressiv...=3494&t=1&td=1 is for BikeBandits page.

I was able to get my springs from one of the local Honda dealerships. They are Progressive dealers and even matched the price from BikeBandit.

Unfortunately they had to order them in, however they had the springs a couple of days before they had the seals for me.

Compressing the springs with this configuration was dead easy....my only problem now is getting the oil seal out!
Does that have to be done first as i cant see any way of extracting it without doing serious damage to the shroud?
Do I need to reassemble and connect up to an air source to blow it out?
my other question is .... What apart from the oil seal holds it together when the top is unscrewed? I may be thinking about this too much and cant see why it doesn't pull apart????

Head down and bum up means you miss the scenery in Scotland ......SO.....Always ride in comfort (and style)

Removing the seals is fairly easy, but very messy. You want to remove the seals before compressing the shock to remove the springs. For the sake of the pictures I used a shock that had already been disassembled and cleaned.

First drain as much of the oil out as you can by turning the shock upside down. You won't get it all out but the more you get to drain out less of a mess it will make.

First step to getting the seals out is to remove the retaining ring with ring pliers.
