New Ikon Basix series shock absorbers offer the proven quality and engineering of Ikon products, but in a lower priced package.
This version is approximately 337mm, or ~13.25" long and fit many models from the middle 1980s through the early 1990s including LeMans III, LeMans 1000 all years Lemans IV and LeMans V, SP II, SP III, Mille GT, 1000S, Strada, V65C, etc. This version is sometimes selected for use on earlier models in order to raise the ride height and increase ground clearance.
Ikon Basix shocks feature chrome plated bodies, fixed rate damping, 3 position adjustable pre-load and black powder coated progressive rate springs. These shocks offer a long service life, yet are fully rebuildable, and are sold as a pair. The preload adjustments allow the rider to select from light for solo riding, medium for two up comfort and/or more spririted riding, and heavy for two up and/or heavy loads. Ikon Basix shocks feature fade resistant fixed rate damping with the standard issue spring suitable for solo riders in a weight range of 150 to 210 pounds on the lowest spring preload setting, while the highest spring preload setting is sufficient to maintain ride heights for occasional use while riding two up. These shocks feature progressive rate springs that provide a wider load range than fixed rate springs, giving you a shock absorber with a wider range of capabilities.
There is a long history of good results with the selected spring rates.
