XS750 Restoration Project Part...I Don't Remember Anymore -- Shock Upgrades

It's been a while since I've last updated the XS750 project pages, mostly because it's been really cold in the garage and I've been lazy ;) However, a week or two ago, I replaced the (ancient) stock rear brake line with a Goodridge braided stainless line that I picked up from Bike Bandit. Even better, yesterday, the slightly longer (330mm vs. OEM 320mm) Hagon 2810 shocks I ordered finally arrived:

Installation was a breeze:
Pull the old shocks...

Shocks removed...

Left side Hagons in place...

...and the right side.

That's it! I now have a little more clearance between the wheel and frame.
