Can't answer the pressure question but if you find out, look at this post:


Call your MC dealer and get the pressure number. This is the cheapest place in the world I think for the springs.

yeah ive had a hard time finding answers i have seen 30# 40# and 60# shocks for sunpad at mc catalog but none saying what models etc. i went on ebay and bought 2 60# shocks for 22 bucks. we will see how it goes. if too much ill switch em for 50s then 40s. I WILL find this out somehow!!!!
