I ordered these Honda Rebel CMX250 Rear Shocks from ebay.

These ones are 10.5″ eye to eye, compared to the stock ones which are 12″.

Why not hardtail struts? Because my back is farked. I just can’t hack it.

They were easy as pie to install.

I just had to pop out the little eyelet shim on the new ones.

Dropped the ride height, and made for a much stiffer ride.

    Looking real good. the new ride height adds a lot to the overall look.
    do all Rebel shocks fit on a XV or just these specific CMX250’s?

    I’ve been following this blog for some time now so I hope to see this thing finished soon haha
