These hardtail mono struts for all years of Honda Shadow VT600 and VLX 600 (1988 - 2007) are machined from solid 6061 aluminum billet and designed to hardtail and lower your bike just enough to get the look you want without sacrificing handling. The Mono Strut replaces the Mono Shock on your VT600 to achieve the hardtailed look and feel, without the fabrication know-how and mess!! Made with the builder in mind, you can leave these struts exposed for a clean, well-thought-out look.
These fit all years (88-07) of the VLX600/VT600 Honda Shadows.
Chamfered edges, straightforward design, solid construction, and quality finishes let you know you are putting the highest quality parts on your bike.
The 9.00" length ( hole center to hole center) is to drop the bike just about as low as it can go without frame modification and still maintain good handling physics and steering response. So you will get around a 1.75"-2" drop depending on tire choice. These struts will bring the swing arm closer to the rear fender horns/forward frame loop.
