NOTE: FITTING THIS SHOCK DOES NOT AFFECT THE OEM REAR WHEEL MOVEMENT OR ALTER THE SEAT HEIGHT.
The new design of Tractive shock body allows for the fitment of their Hydraulic Preload Adjuster RRP 531
We recommend this option, as on ABS model bikes it is very difficult to access the preload ring and turn it using the tool provided.
It will allow the preload to be adjusted by up to 10mm with the simple turning of a knob on the remote adjuster, which adjusts the preload on the spring by means of hydraulic pressure.
It is a very simple, quick way to adjust the preload when carrying extra luggage, or a passenger, or going from street to off-road travelling.
No more hammering away at the OEM preload adjuster locknut, and struggling to turn it.
Simple to fit, and no maintenance required.
Supplied with all fixings.
If ordered with shock, we will fit the Hyd Preload Adjuster and correct shock spring at our factory before despatch.
2 year TracTive warranty
