    Koni Shocks for Hondas

    Currently running these on my 400F, but they're actually made for the CB900/1100 bikes. They'd be a nice upgrade for a 750 also. Not sure of the spring rate, but they are very stiff on the little 400. These will raise the rear ride height and add cornering clearance and quicken the steering response. Light weight aluminum bodies will save a few ounces too. Good for the cafe builders.

    They have adjustable preload and also 3 clicks of adjustable compression damping. These are fairly sought after. I paid $180+ for these on ebay a while back and thought I got a deal.

    I don't have close up pics handy, but there are two flaws. One shock has some rubbing on the body from the spring contacting it. Not sure how that happened, but it doesn't do it now. The other shock's lower mounting clevis is stripped out. I just use a nylock nut on it and have no problems. There are no leaks or problems with the way these shocks function.

    I'd like $100 shipped in the USA.

    Could you add a few more pictures of your front fork brace setup. I recently purchased the same fork brace for one of my 750 and I'm curious how they mount on the forks. Mine seem to mount on top of my fork dust covers and it just don't seem correct to me mounting the fork brace over rubber. My fork dust covers extend down the fork by about 2".

    I have the same rear shocks on my 750 - love'em

    thanks
