Hello everyone,

I am Jack from Delfzijl in the Netherlands, and since a few weeks I own a 1987 VF1000F2, wonderfull bike.
However the suspension is rather stiff, I feel every bumb on the landroads and sometimes I even get hopped off of my seat so I would like to make this a bit more comfortable.
Who can help me with a manual for this matter?
You may send me this by mail if you like, to
Many thanks for whoever can help me!!!


Hello, Jack
Is it original (no visible spring) shock absorber there ? If loosing air from rear shock and greasing the link system does not help, then you may find yourself changing the whole shock absorber. Hagons from UK were most economical solution I found, and I have now made first test ride with new Hagon suspension. Front is good, but rear end needs still some adjusting. I can scan you the rear suspension pages of the manual, if you wish, but I strongly suggest ho get one to yourself, Honda’s original shop manual is best, but as far as I know, haynes and Clymer books are OK too.
