Yamaha Dealers Offer Cruiser 465 Monoshock

Motorcycle Parts

Yamaha dealers of North America are slated to distribute Progressive Suspension’s new 465 Series Monoshock with applications that include their popular Raider as well as other models in both a stock height as well as 1" lowered version.

Patrick Lovro (Progressives Director of Marketing) says: "It has been our pleasure to partner with Yamaha on this project and we feel the high performance 465 Series monoshock is a great match for their line of high performance cruisers."

The 465 Series shock represents state of the art in high pressure gas monotube design. Utilizing a 46mm bore and deflective disc piston for precise damping, the beefy 16mm hard chrome shaft rides on custom viton seals for low friction and a leak free life. Threaded body and a 5 position rebound adjuster allows for fine tuning to match varied riding style and loads.

Also available in a 1" lowered version for that "on the ground" look without a compromise in ride quality.

MSRP: $495.95
