Has anyone figured out what "AIR" shock can be used on the Vision, and have done the replacement yet?? Almost 91K on my 2008, and have had issues lately with oil leaks from the rear shock. 

I've been watching some of the videos out there, but they are ALL with the Cross bikes. The system looks to be about the same with regard to swingarm, frame, and upper/lower mounting system. Do you suppose the air system for the Cross bikes would fit the Vision? 

Jedi Jeff, et.al., IS ANYBODY OUT THERE???

2008 to 2010 are all the same. Then in 2011 to 2017 are all the same. The vision 8 ball use a different shock guess cause sit lower then the normal vision.
The CC model from 2011 to 17 all you there owen shock. Don't know why it wouldn't work. The CC tour is 25 pounds lighter then the vision but has the same ground clearance. You can take the stock shock apart There looks like 2 o-rings at each end of shaft that keeps the oil in.

All,
I'm looking for a shock that will eliminate the "rocker push rod" on the right, and the "rocker pivot" on the top, so the bottom of the shock would fit in the "middle" of the swing arm, in between the arms of the swing arm, as opposed to the shock on the left side and the "rocker push rod" on the right side.

So then your going to have to add 2 shocks. There is nothing wrong with the rocker or link if you do greasing when you get a new rear tire.
