Short Buddy Riders Unite!
We have confirmed that the Scooterworks Low Down rear shock fits on all Genuine Buddys, RoughHouse, Rattler and Black Cat!
Our adjustable Scooterworks Low Down shock will lower the Buddy seat height from ½” to 1½”, giving you a new seat height of 28½”. When this is combined with the Buddy Low Profile seat, the seat height drops an additional 1½”, for an overall drop of three inches, bringing the total seat height down to 27”!
Installation is a snap. To fit the Scooterworks Low Down shock on these models, you’ll need just to flip the lower clevis (so the offset is facing outward and the bolt enters from the inside).
For heavier Buddy riders, or those who ride two-up, we advise that you adjust the preload higher and set the height of the shock to no lower than a 1” drop, unless you remove the rear fender for added clearance for the fuel valve. We tested the shock at this setting on a Buddy with a 220lb rider and had no clearance issues.
The RoughHouse low profile seat is due in this spring.
