The CL MotoTech Honda CB kit is a complete adaptation of a RFY unit specifically for Honda CB1100f model and is the most customized and honed model in the CL MotoTech product line. While this kit was built specifically for the CB100f model, it likely works for a wide variety of Honda CB bikes. The shock package has a clevis lower mount that has been drilled and tapped for the stock 10mm bolt while the top mount accommodates the stock 16mm upper mount. The damper is adjusted specifically for CB motorcycles and is optimized across all aspects. The kit is available in several lengths, the longer lengths provides less rake and generally means that your bike will have quicker steering, though this is done at a loss of stability. The spring is a 120lbs/inch unit that is slightly stiffer than the stock spring. This lends to a sportier ride but also helps supports todays riders who are more heavily clad in gear than 30 years ago. As with all my builds, you have your choice between Maxima 3 weight, 7w, and 10w oil. The shock is then charged with nitrogen to assure consistent and reliable performance.
About The Shock
The shock itself is a modified and serviced RFY shock body and piston. The body is lightweight aluminum with adjustable preload. The piston and shaft are of steel construction. The piston is of a deflective disk design and can be tuned via shim stack adjustment, oil weight change, and reservoir pressure. An important feature of the package is the reservoir which allows for the pressurization of the shock which promotes consistent performance even in extreme environments. The entire package with springs weights around 10lbs. total and offers significant weight savings over stock and steel bodied units.
