This useful product has been designed & manufactured for us by Tractive Suspension, in Nederlands, to fit all Honda CB500X models with the later version Tractive rear shocks.
If you are unsure as to which version shock is fitted, the later Level 1 & 1b shocks have a spring with 100-160, 110-160,120-160 or 130-160 printed on them. The longer Level 2 shocks have 100-185,110-185,120-185 or 130-185 printed on them.
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.
The remote adjuster knob can be rotated approximately 20 turns to achieve the full movement of the preload piston travel. The knob has a "click" every half-turn to aid setting.
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.
