**** When ordering a lowering shock, to ensure the parked stability of your bike after it has been lowered, we recommend using shorter kick stand and/or the center stand.
**** The conversion of the replacement springs should be made by a specialist workshop.
**** Important: With this suspension solution, we recommend replacing the rear and front shock absorbers together. This is the only way to achieve the best possible handling with this premium suspension system.
This Touratech Suspension DDA / Plug & Travel shock absorber is an absolutely top class suspension component for your BMW F850GS equipped with the BMW DDC system. This premium shock absorber is systematically designed for long-distance touring with lots of luggage, on any type of road surface and even off-road. This Touratech Suspension DDA / Plug & Travel shock absorber simply replaces the BMW DDC shock. The existing plug connectors and switches on the handlebar are retained and used as usual. As a result, this shock absorber becomes an integral part of the motorcycle via the original BMW control unit. This shock absorber can be used together with the original BMW front shock absorber. The Touratech suspension system that adapts itself to the adventurer inside you so all you have to do is ride!
This Touratech Suspension DDA / Plug & Travel shock absorber is manufactured using the same precision components and parts that have been tried-and-tested in our shock absorbers over thousands of miles of touring, under the most intense conditions. At the heart of this shock absorber is the high-performance DDA valve, developed and patented by Tractive. It allows the damping to adjust in fractions of a second to any riding situation. To withstand the rigors of long-distance touring, our shock absorbers have a larger piston diameter, which means a larger oil capacity. This enables better cooling with a high damping frequency. As a result, the shock absorber and damping are more stable and there is less stress on the seals.

In this case, we individually modify the shock absorber to meet your needs by fitting a spring with a higher spring rate.
