Shock Mod.

I have a crappy china shock on my bike and it started leaking so I tried out fix it with the minimal amout of money as possible. I only seemed to have about 2 options so far. One would be to buy a 3+ shock that may be even worse or buy a 900 dollar shock. I decided to mix my shock with a honda f4i shock and see what happens. I may have to go back and rebleed air out of the shock. But I havent rode with it yet. Maybe this will help someone else.

The honda shock does not come with a air fill cap for the stock shock to I pulled the one off my china shock then drilled a hole just large enough I could thread my fill from the china shock into the honda cap. There was no tap or thread chaser. lol. Just drill and forced it in. No leaks so far.
