View Full Version : Shock ? for the spotters chair

05-08-2009, 08:11 PM
Hi All I need a new shock for my 91 ps 190 spotters seat back but I do not have any info as to how many pounds the shock needs to be. There is no information at all on the original shock. Any one have any idea? Thanks.

No problem.

Remove it and take it in to your local NAPA. They will hook you right up. It is probably about $25-30 USD.

Thats the problem. They need to know what poundage it needs to be as they have to order it in. So if anyone knows please let me know.

I think the one I bought from Overton's was 20 lbs.

I'd try calling a M/C dealer..........although they deal w/new boats, someone would prolly be able to give you the answer for sure.

I'm looking for a shock too. I'm going to check with my dealer this week but let me know if you determine the right specs. 20lbs sounds about right though. Thanks for the information.

I emailed one of the dealers on here but they too asked me how many pounds. So here I am. NAPA has 20#, 35#, and 45#. The NAPA guy had a good point that if you go to strong then something else can break. Plus I would'nt want the seat raising for no reason. TPH did the 20# work for you? Does it hold up the seat back completely on it's own?

The 20 lb. unit works great. Not too much force to strain the hinge but plenty of force to keep the seat back up. It lifts the seat back slowly as well.

I bought and installed a 20# shock from napa and it's works great. Thanks for the help guys!

If anyone else needs one, I may have a couple extra ... I need to check the lbs. first.

I got it from napa. I ordered a type A, 20#. I can't remember length but I am thinking it was 15". I just measured center to center on the sockets that attach to the balls on the brackets.
