My back has been bothering me more now. Going to make a couple of phone calls and talk to some people for advise on the spring for my Penske replacement shock that I installed on my CrossRoads a while back. I will probably try a softer spring on it again. My wife hardly ever rides with me now because her back bothers her. So I am going to try the lighter rated spring and see how that goes. If it still does not ride smooth enough I am considering the "Arnott" air shock. The system looks nice and sounds nice according to their web site they advertise on here. Now the problem is it is a lot of $$$$ for there product. I know if you want to play you have to pay. So worse case is if the liter rated spring does not work I can go for the air suspension air shock from them. The positive is it is cheaper than a new or new used bike and I get to ride my Victory without pain[hopefully]. The bad thing is the high cost. I would have to charge it on the plastic. The other option is I could gamble run down to the salvage yard and try to make a shock work off another bike. Also I could by a new Victory shock, which is a gamble as to how long it would last, or buy a used Victory shock that may be worn out when I get it. So the big question is has anybody on the site bought and used the "Arnott" shock for our X bikes? If you have bought one what do you think of the system and how many miles have you rode it. Would you buy it again?
