  1. Just below the right rear corner of the drivers seat. It is a Schrader valve.
  2. I have a couple pair of HD slip on pipes for sale. $75 per pair. Very nice condition.

    August 11 -15 works best for me but I'm in for either.
  6. I've mentioned venturerider.org several time with no adverse reaction when mentioning RSV shock repair from the facebook group. Here is a link to an example: https://www.facebook.com/groups/21338336667/?post_id=10157678203361668 I couldn't get this link to work. Sorry Here is a copy of my post. =AZXQw76oad8lI5nf10oo-RVEAL3ZBX9S3sB_C1MTgezAXAvjT_7o--tjBKewhdRiExpFstLN52vB_rTs0yorpTxU3XLMzETcBpwq8dLcakOdyEetZXWeyW1pIcigsg3PCafYjok-tG7hNsfmqB7QyvrIgMZ0RpeYuKzT9m-bIl-7yfclwhhUMkY0IWBVutA_Ot8&__tn__=R]-R"]Dave Fitzgerald =AZXQw76oad8lI5nf10oo-RVEAL3ZBX9S3sB_C1MTgezAXAvjT_7o--tjBK
  7. Haze gray and under weigh Chief! Can’t wait to see it. Former QM2, what was your rate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Sorry to hear that Phil. I'm also sorry to say that Rose Mary and I will be missing the rally also. The wedding of a very dear friend had to be rescheduled from May to that weekend. I can't wait to hear how the new venue worked out. See you next year.
  9. Rose Mary and I are so sorry to hear this news. You and your family are in our prayers.
  10. Charles, Thanks for your input. I sent the repaired shock to you on February 8, 2018, a little more than 2 years ago. Send it back and I'll repair it again. I have an exchange if you want to do that. Let me know. PM on the way Ride safe, ride smooth. Fitz
  11. Here is a pic of the tool.Shock Absorber Extender.docx
  12. Thanks for asking Bubber. It is fairly simple: Here is an overview of the process. RSV Shock Repair Overview Here is a brief overview of the process: I use a 12 ton shop press from Harbor Freight. Remove the Schrader valve. Remove the rubber boot. (this is important, if left on you will damage it with the press) Invert the shock supported by the top clevis, don’t support it by the housing. It will press the shock apart. Compress the shock to bleed out the fluid, leave about 1.5” of the chrome ram exposed. A couple strokes should do it. Support the shock, bot
  13. Thanks EtRider, I've been in contact with Duey and his shock will be coming my way for repair soon. Thanks for the bump!
