WANTED: R1100s rear shock.

Postby Heyho » Fri Apr 26, 2019 1:25 pm

Despite allegedly having been rebuilt a short while before I purchased the bike (or maybe because of!), my standard rear shock pumped it's seal out yesterday. Was an interesting ride home.

I'm after a rear shock of any variety, anything considered.

Thank you.

I have one in my garage that had done 25,000 miles when I removed it. Not in brilliant condition, but you are welcome to it until you get something better.

If you come up blank on here - there is always Motorworks (which at least should have some guarantee)

Or EBay (But you could just be inheriting someone else’s problem)

Good luck.

(The ‘guarantee’ - is in comparison to EBay, not with a member on here)
If I am ever on life support - Unplug me......
Then plug me back in..........

See if that works .....

Many thanks to xbpod for letting me have his old shock, extraordinarily good of you. I will pay it forward.

It's now fitted, and has confirmed my suspicions that the old one was never right, despite having allegedly been rebuilt. Now I understand how stable these bikes actually are. The old one had actually come apart - the internal circlip had given up, and it literally fell in two as I removed it!
