Has anyone replaced their stock shock with one of these Ricor shocks?

I was wondering if anybody has every mounted something up like this on their piggy? I saw a lot of guys use them on snowmobiles and use oven bags so there is no leakage. I was thinking maybe a guy could mount it against the muffler above the tire and take it off when not in use. Any ideas guys?


Thanks,
Kyle

What do crf forks go for? And what else would I have to buy to make them fit? And just buy those and they're good to go. They don't need gold valves oil or springs?

make any sense
14/45 and 15/48 will give you the same reduction. I went to 15/48 after having the stock 15/45 and I love it. I really didn't lose any top end that I could tell, and it accelerates much better. I can still easily cruise at 65-70.

You have to shop around to get that kind of deal. USD's are nicer offroad but a fork brace is enough to make the slab riding better. Kinda depends on where you ride the most. If I were offroading like I did a couple years ago, the USD's would be a useful update. Since nearly all my riding is pavement now, I not going to bother with it.

OK, what are your bitches concerning the OEM suspension of the XRL?
Maybe we can save you 50% more cash. Everybody likes 50% more cash, except the baby.

Thanks,
Kyle

that`s funny shit right there,i could be riding along and say "screw this..i`m stopping for a hot samich"...........




Seriously though,where would you have room to put it,,put it under the fender and it`ll be a projectile on the first decent bump after the tire grabs it.........

Put it under the right side plastic......no room there.....

There is unlikely enough heat from the exhaust to heat anything in a REASONABLE amount of time.........

My advise...eat lunch before you leave the house,by samiches enroute to whereever you are going.......or get a backback and stuff it full..

Pretty sure I'm going to build up the stocks. Not really fond of having to swap clamps, then build sum kind of mount for the instruments, and still have to rebuild for my weight

If you must weld it on... make sure that you either fix it or inform the new owner what they are buying into. If karma exists, the PO of my bike is still trying to find a cure for the plague that has infested his nether regions.

Maybe. I just went on CL and there it was. I don't know what the going rate is for a full front end.

Its not that hard, just requires a few parts. Steve has all the links to make it a bolt on affair. Its really only about the $$$$.
