GL1800 Shock Options

GL1800 owners have two shock options:

The first option is to have the stock shock rebuilt with a Gold Valve Conversion Kit and resprung with a RT Hi-Performance Spring. The second option is a complete G3-S Custom Series Shock that includes a Rebound Adjuster.

The revised damping and spring rate will increase bottoming resistance while improving comfort. Both options are built to the rider's preference and are guaranteed.

►Fork Performance Options


The first option improves the stock shock's performance by installing a Gold Valve Conversion Kit. With a slight modification, the stock "non-rebuildable" shock can be fully rebuildable.

With this option you get a custom setup Gold Valve Conversion Kit and the correct spring rate for your riding style and comfort. Guaranteed!

Gold Valve Conversion sells for $599.99 with Preload Adjuster upgrade included!
