Here is how I changed my rear shocks and seals on my GL1100.

First segment is WHY YOU DO NOT USE AN AIR HOSE TO FILL YOUR SHOCKS.







































I still have the top part of the spring top which was drilled. I lend this out if you pay shipping to and from.

Let us now if this helped you.

The 2 pieces for the compression is a 2 inch threaded collar. Found at any DIY store in the electrical. The top one I drilled it so the shock would fit and the cap would clear the collar.

I do lend this one out if needed. All I ask is you pay postage to and from.



You can see how little is drilled out. The threads are just barley left.
