The air is cool and sun is going down. It's a Friday night and you're headed out to Mullholland to get away from it all.

The screen door slams shut with a quick "whack!" and before you can even get the garage door open she flings it back open and starts yammering about being home in time for American Idol.

You pretend to acknowledge her with a cagey smile. All the while kicking your real love over with a passion Mrs. Idol, will never understand.

She roars to life and with a flick of the wrist your off like a man with purpose down the narrow drive, leaving it all behind.

You ride north on the 405 pressing into the wind remembering what its all for. You bank right and take the exit onto Skirball Center Dr. knowing perfectly well what lies ahead. You've been here before. Many times. Yet your heart beat quickens like it's the first.

Almost all at once it seems, your dancing between 3rd and 4th...clutch, brake...up, down...lean left, lean right...and so it ensues. The ultimate affair between you and your real love. The pressure of the bike against the road and the undulations of it is familiar feeling. It puts you at ease.

You ride East until you forget everything, but despite your now clear mind you just keep going...screw Mrs. Idol and her bathetic acceptance of the mainstream bs that plagues the world today.

Dime City's got you covered through all the twisties of life no matter how sharp and narrow they might be. Pickup a set of these chrome plated dampers and your guaranteed a more stomachable ride through it all.

Good looking at a great price

These 11 inch shorty's are going on my wife VT750rs Honda.
I'll drop the front tubes to level things out and already bought a side stand on E-bay to cut down.
Should look cool slammed a bit and she will be able to "flat-foot" it .
Thanks for the GREAT service, see you at the Shows.


I needed to help a friend lower her KZ400. Installed 11" chrome shocks and dropped the bike a clear 1 1/2". Looked and worked great! She's very happy, it allowed her to straddle the bike comfortably. The chrome matched her bike since these bikes had chrome exhaust pipes and fenders. Great price...most shocks are too costly. Definitely a great buy!

Good stuff

These seem to be a good shock. The only problem was clearance at the chain guard. Some work with a snips and Dremel tool fixed that. This was on an early Z-1, so some folks might not want to cut the chain guard.

Nice ride

I picked up these shorty shocks for my 1977 KZ650. I'm 5'8" and these shocks are 3 inches shorter than stock. I can sit on the seat with both feet flat on the ground now. Works great.
