Sorry, I didn't I'm in Nursing school full time and just didn't have the time but still try to ride so I had a shop do it. I know the shocks aren't bad. I also had risers and new fork seals put on so he had the front end apart anyway, the change in ride is well worth it.
I just finished replacing my rear shocks with the same 412HD, massive improvement, but my stock shocks were done! Fairly easy job, if you have a nomad both bags come off, Classic just the left. Jack the back of the bike to take the weight off the shocks, then 4 nuts.
Be aware, you need about 6-8 stainless steel washers with 1/2 (13mm I think) holes to shim the progressive shocks to the stock mounting position. But only took an hour and unbelievable ride difference after. Now to replace the front oil with 20 WT and I'll be good

On my 08 1600 Nomad, I has a noise (clicking/clunking ) sound coming from around the clutch area when idling or açelerating, but seems quiet on decelerating. I have pulled the clutch apart to investigate and see 2 possible issues but my local Kawasaki dealer is not to knowledgeable on the...
My bike has161000kms, i believe its time to give her a bday, needs a new clutch and was thinking a new set of pipes. Anyone in brisbane Australia know where I could get some quality custom pipes?
thanks in advance
I have an 05 Vulcan classic 1600 with the nomad style exhaust and no current wind/road debris protection. Would anyone know of any sites that I may be able to get a bagger style parts. Over the winter I’d like to get some hard bags, and wind protection. Any and all input is greatly appreciated...
