Replacing the rear suspension rubber boots

Post by fred1diver » Sat May 05, 2018 3:30 pm



Hey everyone, just finished my timing belts and did a few jobs on the wing today, my next project is to change the rubber boots on the rear shocks, I know I have to remove the saddle bags, but what else do I need to do to remove the shocks? And how do you install the rubber boots?

well it's done, it was easier than I thought, but man do you have to remove a lot of stuff to get the shock off, another project done, now I have to find the electrical trouble :shock:

You can still get them from the Honda Dealer, at least a few years back.
