Hello,

I have a 2003 Honda Shadow ACE 750. Are the top shock mounts on my bike cracking or is this just the chrome oxidizing? I’ve been monkeying around with the shocks getting a new rear fender on and off.

It looks like a little rust has gotten in the weld between the eye and the top of the shock. Shouldn't be any big deal.

If you want to be sure, take the shock off, lay it on it's side, and whack the eye with a heavy rubber mallet a few times. If the eye doesn't fall off put the shock back on and go for a ride.

Looks like crappy chrome to me. I wouldn't worry
