    Default Champion IRS (Ind. Susp) Shocks (Coilovers)

    Any clue of a good starting point for adjustment. Just me on it 99 percent of the time (200LB). Bought some new shocks but decided it only needs adj. Still have New ones so if you're lookin' for replacements let me know.

    Thanks

    Good afternoon, did you get the replacement shocks from Champion with the yellow 600 lb springs, or aftermarket? I have a 2012 Gl1800 with the IRS conversion.

    I adjusted my stock shocks up 1-1/2 turns as I ride 2 up most of the time. I weight 200 and my wife is 110. We would bottom out at times when they were all the way down, which is the way the kit comes for a soft ride for one rider.

    Also, what shocks are you getting rid of?

    I have been thinking about replacing mine as they have 34k on them and one is starting to leak a little.

    Thanks
