GL1800 Shock Upgrade Options

- Race Tech offers all GL1800 owners two different shock upgrade options to choose from. -

The first option is to have the stock shock rebuilt internally with our Gold Valve Conversion Kit and resprung with a High Performance Spring. Our second option is a complete G3-S Custom Series Shock, with a rebound adjuster, also sprung and valved specifically to the rider's spec.

The benefit of either upgrade far surpasses the capability and ride of the stock unit. The revised damping will increase bottoming resistance while improving the comfort of the ride. Each modification is built to the rider's preference and guaranteed to impress.


Option 1 - The first option to improve a Goldwing's ride is by improving the stock shock's performance and capabilities by installing our Gold Valve Conversion Kit. With a slight modification, the stock shock can be fully rebuildable. For the kit price stated below we'll install our Gold Valve Conversion Kit, with custom settings, and provide the correct spring rate for your riding style and comfort. Guaranteed!

Gold Valve Conversion sells for $599.99 with preload upgrade included!
