1)    Remove stock shock absorber according to procedures outlined in the Honda service manual.  

2)  With rear wheel lifted and linkage pull rod and knuckle hanging as shown, install G3-S shock through the bottom of the swingarm.  Feed the reservoir through first and then the shock.  You will need somebody to push down on the rear wheel slightly in order for the shock to go through.


3)  Position the shock with the hydraulic line facing the back of the motorcycle, this will put the line to the right, the reservoir will come through on the left as shown. 

Install upper shock bolt, lower shock bolt and all linkage bolts. Torque all bolts to factory specs.

4)  Use your key to open the storage compartment on the left side of the motorcycle.  There are two bolts that hold the storage compartment on, remove the front bolt (closest to the battery), you will not reuse this bolt.

5)  Locate the 6×1.0x25 Allen bolt (included).


6)  Utilizing the exposed mounting hole, attach the reservoir to the motorcycle using the Allen bolt.


7)  Double check torque on all fasteners, make sure reservoir is securely attached and hydraulic line is free of any hindrance. Double check the sag. It is on your setup sheet.


The shock is preset for you. Have fun!!!
