I’m 5’4” so I decided to go with air ride setup lol,
It rides like stock suspension on 70psi. 90psi is stock ride height.

What does the shock look like? The pics were hard to see on my phone. They show more at home.

Where did you get it?

How are they for potholes?

I bought the shocks on eBay, it’s a Air ride suspension for Harley’s. Haven’t hit any potholes yet.

D0 you have any info like price, part number , manufacturer? Looks like you had to fabricate some parts to make it fit.The shock strap is added and do you have to carry the air compressor ?? How much did it change the ride from the original characteristics..Stiffer ? Softer , more /less cushiony ?? etc appreciate feedback on the ride..Thx

I’m going to look for the link. You have to fabricate parts and do some modification to make it fix. I carry the compressor so I can control the riding height. At 70psi it feels like stock ride. If you want your scooter stiffer or softer just add or release air. I’ll try to make a YouTube video.
