Features of the Touratech Suspension Plug & Travel ESA:
- The shock absorber housing is made of aluminum / steel.
- All assemblies and components are designed for intensive use with heavy touring motorcycles.
- Large 16 mm piston rod made of chromium-molybdenum steel for maximum stability and durability
- Fitted with special low-friction seals. This results in very low wear and long durability of the shock absorber.
- The suspension spacer is fitted with sturdy stainless steel bushes for the fastening screws. This gives the fastening screw a firm, backlash-free fit, even at highest loads.
- The Touratech Suspension stepping motor, developed specifically for us, is integrated into the suspension shock absorber.
- Uniquely robust hydraulic 'Extreme' spring pre-tension via BMW ESA button
- All setting options of the BMW ESA are retained in full.
- The Touratech Plug & Travel ESA is operated via the original BMW hand controls.
- Special Touratech setup for balance, damping and rebound.
- The Plug & Travel suspension shock absorber for the ESA is fully service-enabled. This allows permanent maximum ride dynamics.
- The Expedition PDS is a hydraulic device to prevent the shock absorber from bottoming out, and involves the use of a second damper piston. The effect: no mechanical bottoming out of the shock absorber.
- The Expedition expansion tank permits a larger volume of oil and this improves cooling action at high damping frequencies. An additional pressure stage damping adjuster separated into High Speed and Low Speed, facilitates very precise and extended adjustment of the Plug & Travel ESA basic setup.
The installed basic setup is set for riders up to 100 kg including travel luggage. Adjustment for considerably higher loads or other exceptional requirements is possible. The suspension shock absorber is then customized by us to your requirements using a spring with a higher spring rate and other configurations.
