The Touratech Suspension EXPLORE Set for the BMW R1200GS is the right choice for long distance riding and touring use. These shock absorber's offer a large adjustment range with plenty of reserves to meet the demands of motorbike travel. Its floating piston design, hydraulic preload and fine damping adjustment enable a more suitable suspension setup for different loading conditions than is possible with the bike manufacturer's standard components. You can easily and quickly restore the bike's balance via a hand wheel that adjusts the hydraulic spring preload.
