gabriel, oh, where for art thou gabriel?

gabriel hijacker series

click above for details



here is a OUT-OF THE-WAY set up that might work for some

not that corvette shocks aren't AWESOME

I just see myself needing that extra 1" back every once in a while, i.e. around corners.

STILL, I may do this mod just to see.

require top knurling and rear bushing replacement or just call PC PAIN...

could also require elaborate pump and gravy setup.

like he doesn't have enough to do around here

they do allow 9.75" to 14" - so theoretically they could be beneficial

I almost clicked BUY button earlier, but found myself bottoming on my stock setup and thought, WTF?

Wow, if those work that would be great. Price seems to good to be true?
800 for Ohlins, 600 for Progressive, 400 something for HD. 90 for these.
When I bottom out hard 800 doesnt seem bad
then.........I get home and reality sets in.
I can do a lot of riding for 800 and bottom out once or twice....

probably like a brick - had these on a camaro once I believe - the reason I posted is there are possibly people around who may be using these or have used them - I'm not saying anyone should use them, just talkin' about it.

stealing some info from another forum: one inch from the bottom of the range is the best performance in range, that's about a 1" drop from where the FLTRX is now.

the cooler part would to be able to raise up the bike on the fly if you knew you were headed for twisties.

with ABS, I am not aware of a super great and easy location for an onboard air pump - A similar 'KIT' might be the ARNOTT/Bilstein 12"

just got a PM about a potential 'clunk' due to the fact that these would be modified to fit, not purpose built.

well, at least now I know what to look for at swap meets.

I have one done and finishing two more tomorrow using 2001 and 2012, the ride on my 06 is great, over 2000 miles since completed and no problems.

The compressor, dump valve and remote are mounted under the fairing, I have 8 hrs in installation and wiring.

and next time it will only take 15 minutes.

I like the MONROES concept.

I may end up going with the Bilstein Kit from Arnott.
