    Many riders ask us if an Ohlins Shock upgrade is worth it. The answer is YES. If you want to feel the road through a velvet glove and have your bike inspire confidence you didn’t know you had, then an Ohlins shock is the answer. Suspension is such an important part of the motorcycle that many fast riders buy a suspension upgrade before anything else. It will improve your riding experience and let you ride faster and smoother while being more controlled.

    There’s a reason Ohlins suspension is used on so many winning motorcycle on circuits around the world. With such a wide reach, Ohlins is able to gather an incredible amount of test data to bring you the very best performance money can buy. Any company can claim to have the best suspension for your motorcycle but thousands of hours of research and development from race teams across the globe is hard to compete with. After all, MotoGP riders use Ohlins.

    When you purchase your Ohlins shock from us, please remember to pass along your weight and type of riding you do so we may set up the shock to work best for your motorcycle including installing the proper spring. These options should be available above. Please fill out this section prior to adding the Ohlins shock to your shopping cart. Fine tuning is recommended by a suspension tech once the shock is installed.

    * The culmination of three decades of world championship roadracing and more than 100 World titles.
    * Features high- and low-speed compression and rebound damping; all settings are independent.
    * This allows a huge range of adjustments with equal increments of force throughout the adjustment settings range - even the shape of the damping curve can be changed to suit all types of tracks and conditions.
    * All preload and rebound adjustment changes affect the flow of damping oil from the piston, not the shock piston rod or oil displacement volume.
    * Compression damping forces are unique - unlike a conventional shock, compression is not caused by a drop in pressure on the rebound side of the piston; instead, it is caused by an increase in pressure on the compression side.
    * This reduces cavitation and makes high gas pressure in the shock reservoir unnecessary, keeping internal pressures in the shock unit a minimum.
    * The low amount of internal pressure results in excellent suspension response even with a short stoke/high force acting on the shock.
    * Piggyback-type shock reservoir gives improved cooling to the shock oil for more consistent damping and long damper life.
    * Integrated remote hydraulic spring preload adjuster.
    * 36mm shock piston.
    * Picture is only a representation. Actual product may vary

      Ohlins S46DR1 Shock Absorber for NC700X
      by Yew Tuck C. on 05/22/14
      Pros: The original rear shock on the NC700X could not be adjusted and was inadequate to handle my weight (94 kg). I have since installed the Ohlins shock and enjoying every ride now. The bike is no longer oscillating like before, that seriously made me felt nausea.
      Cons: None known yet.
      by Hernan C. on 11/04/14
      Pros: The damping is excellent, even though the basic of Ohlins line, the results in my Triumph Street Triple 2013 were incredible, improved to 100% damper motorcycle series, I went up about 1 or 2 inches, not lower the tail as did before the climbing it keeps the line and the best that can regulate the rebound.
      Very easy and quick installation, it is recommended as a weekend project with the kids.
      Cons: WARNINGĦĦĦĦ if the order is to send him to another country other than USA, at the office but have a problem in the office declare as hazardous materials, which require special packaging and claim to be hazardous material having gas therein, the cost of international shipping is to the clouds, but worth every penny paid
      Ohlins does not disappoint
      by Jay M. on 04/12/13
      Pros: The FZ8, for 2012 and prior years, comes with suspension that is just adequate for freeway or commuting for the average rider. Experienced and aggressive riders will find the shock and forks very flaccid and will not be able to get anything like real performance from the bike. The Ohlins cures about 80 percent of that; it completely cleans up the rear end and by doing so, improves the front quite a bit. Mine came set up perfectly from the factory, with a little less rebound needed than suggested, leaving a lot of room to crank in the damping for that track day. The workmanship is outstanding. It's a beautiful piece, and while it lacks compression damping adjustments, it's so well-sorted that rebound is all anyone is going to need to suit the purposes of the FZ8. You can spend more money on a shock if you'd like, but won't get much more real-world functionality. In fact, too many adjustments can just complicate things. It's all the shock this bike needs.
      Cons: For the price and application, no downside at all.
