Touratech Suspension 01-044-5875-0
This shock absorber has been specially configured for the Telelever front wheel suspension on the BMW R1200GS. The strengths of the Telelever system* are reinforced by the fine response characteristics of the Touratech shock absorber. The large adjustment range has enabled us to modify the front of the bike to meet even the extreme requirements of long-distance touring with lengthy off-road stretches and heavy loading. The floating piston design and fine damping adjustment enable a more suitable suspension setup and better balance than is possible with the bike manufacturer's standard components. To adjust your bike's balance – depending on the type of rear shock absorber that is fitted – the preload can be adjusted using the adjustment tool. The damping setting on this Level1 shock allows the necessary degree of control over the bump and rebound to adjust the shock absorber to suit your individual ride comfort requirements.
Facts at a glance:
This shock absorber is configured and adjusted ready for use based on our experience with the front of the BMW R1200GS.
The parameters are: vehicle weight / shock absorber pivot point / design constraints / test rides.
This shock absorber is designed for nearly all possible loading conditions on the front of the bike.
A higher spring rate only makes sense if there is significantly greater weight on the front (modifications/conversions).
As with all suspension solutions, the rear and front of the motorbike should be modified together.
In this case, the possible components for the rear of the BMW R1200GS are:
Touratech Suspension *rear* shock absorber for BMW R1200GS >2009 type *Level1* 01-044-5860-0
Touratech Suspension *rear* shock absorber for BMW R1200GS >2009 type *High End* 01-044-5865-0
Touratech Suspension *rear* shock absorber for BMW R1200GS >2009 type *Extreme* 01-044-5870-0
If only one component is changed, optimal handling will not be achieved.
