Does anyone know of a replacement airshock for this bike. I'd really appreciate any help. I don't want to pay 300.00 for the replacement shocks. Thanks for the help. Mike. :bowing:

Most just use Progressive shocks or rebuild the OEMs.
What kind of problems are you having?

Oh, and welcome to the forum.

Make sure you keep us updated on those Monroes. Many of us 12 riders would like to have more options.
The boots are expensive but the OEM seal kits are pretty cheap. There's a chance the lines or even the compressor could be the air leak.

hopefully those monroe shocks are returnable since after looking at the specs they pretty much would have to be run at pretty much their minimum air setting in order to work,the shocks on a goldwing are pretty much max extended at approx 13.75 and travel is about 3" ,the monroe are minimum 12.50" with no air and max at about 20",i could see where if maybe bike is extremely loaded that these might be usable somewhat
since seal and fluid replacement is a simple process and about $25 i would attempt that first and using monroe shock boots ($10),at least that method would not make the mc possibly ill handling......but that's imho
