1990 Virago 1100 rear shocks

PostAuthor: shdwdip » Sun Mar 17, 2019 2:58 pm

Was wondering if anyone had an answer to what size shocks are on the rear of a 1990 virago 1100, wanting to swap mine for something more modern looking

about 12" mount center-to-m.center(+/- 1") - you'll have to be more specific on what "size" you refer to.
