This shock absorber is the right choice for normal touring on the BMW F800GS. This type of shock absorber offers a large adjustment range with plenty of reserves to meet the demands of motorbike travel. Its floating piston design and fine damping adjustment enable a more suitable suspension setup and better balance than is possible with the bike manufacturer's standard components. To compensate for large luggage loads, the spring preload can be adjusted using an adjustment tool. The damping setting on this Level1 shock allows the necessary degree of control over the bump and rebound to adjust the shock absorber to suit your individual ride comfort requirements.
