1 Wheel Revolution at Motoblot

Posted by on Jun 17, 2014 in Bikes, Events | Comments Off on 1 Wheel Revolution at Motoblot

Had a great time in Chicago for Motoblot. A very unique crowd from our usual events but they loved the H-D wheelies! The lot was probably the roughest we have ever performed on mixed with some Sunday storms, but we hammered down and gave it our best. We must have done ok because they are eager to have us back again next year! Here are a few photos we captured and a few from Alex Hawn Photography!

Flying home for a few days to rest up before we return to MO for Biker’s on the Square Rally next weekend.

Thanks,

Rob

Moto-Mucci’s Project CX500: Progressive 412 Rear Shocks

The CX500 build is an ever evolving platform. I ride the bike daily around the city so it’s both out of necessity and desire. Considering it started as a budget build there wasn’t a lot of money thrown at the systems one might want to upgrade for improved performance – like suspension and braking. I’m slowly beginning to give attention to these areas on the bike when I’ve got time.

First up is that rear suspension. The shocks that used to be on there were far too stiff, and just plain shitty. I think they were Emgo units but I couldn’t verify because they had no markings on them. I got to talking with David Z. over at Progressive Suspension about a new set up for the rear.

On Progressive’s site they list the 412-4211C shock for a CX500 which is a 13″ shock with a 90/130 spring rate and a 3.89″ stroke.
I was looking for a 1″ drop in the rear so I ran through their catalog and picked out the 412-4049B/C models. They’re a 12.00″ length with a 3.01 stroke and 90/130 rate. Meaning the shocks are an inch shorter but have a .88″ shorter stroke and an identical spring rate. They come in Black and Chrome I believe. I’ve removed the dust covers from mine. So far I love them. The ride comfort is amazing yet still sporty. They’re allowing me to go for much longer rides without ass-fatigue.

I know there are a lot of other CX owners that follow the blog so just sharing the info. 🙂
