Tricky Air & Billet, a company specializing in front and rear air suspension kits, billet products products for different makes and models of motorcycles and also building some wild customs, is announcing a new rear “XS-Shocks”. Bossman Arnie explained to me that internally he was able to find more room within the piston and top cap that gave the shock another .8 on an inch to add to the 2″ of stroke for a true 2.8 inches of air-suspension stroke (travel). This means that the piston has more area in the middle of the shock to do its job of compression and rebound. which translates to a better riding motorcycle.
The “XS-Shocks” center hole to center hole measurement is still 10″ with no air in the shock. That measurement of 10″ works great for all Harleys and Metric Cruisers. This particular size shock fits any bike with shocks outside of the frame, new or old. Tricky Air & Billet offers a true rebound adjustment so that you can dial in the softness or firmness that you desire. The shocks are still made out of 304 stainless steel and still have a limited lifetime rebuild able warranty. The price of these shocks start at $1095 for a complete kit. Tricky Air & Billet.
