Motorbike Adjustable Tuning Replacement Shock Absorbers
Quality motorcycle shocks – available throughout Australia
While your shocks – whether aftermarket or genuine OEM – are there to do their literal job, they are also responsible for much more than achieving a smooth ride.
Quality products last longer than cheaper alternatives and are made to be exceptionally reliable and consistent. This is because they allow you to have improved traction on any surface, equating to improved steering, grip, braking and safety – essential for riders of any description on any terrain. This gives you greater control and better handling of your motorbike.
Why should you replace your factory motorbike shock absorbers?
The better your brand and make of a motorcycle, the better your parts will likely be. But manufacturers can only guess what their bikes will be used for, and by which riders. Maybe that stock shock is perfect for some motorcyclists, but you need adjustability for road & offroad. Maybe you are larger than the factory test rider, or carry serious adventure gear, or regularly have a pillion passenger.
It might be time to look for a more serious performance coilover. Replacing them with high-quality alternatives extends their life. As a result, you’ll achieve superior handling, better steering, improved grip, and effortless comfort across the board. Our range caters to all this, ensuring your ride is optimised for what you want out of your bike.
In addition to considering replacement options, addressing the need for repair on your motorbike’s shock absorber is vital. Over time, wear and tear can take a toll on this critical component of your suspension system, affecting its performance and compromising your ride quality.
By repairing or replacing your motorbike shock absorbers, you can restore their optimal functionality and ensure a smoother, safer ride. You should prioritise maintenance and repair:
- Preserve Ride Quality: Worn-out shock absorbers can negatively impact ride comfort and handling. They may cause excessive bouncing, bottoming out, or instability, making it harder to control your bike. You can regain your desired smoothness and stability by servicing or replacing them.
- Enhance Safety: Your motorbike's shock absorbers are crucial in maintaining traction and stability, especially during sudden stops, cornering, or encountering rough terrain. Damaged or worn-out shocks can compromise your ability to manoeuvre effectively, risking your safety. Repairing or replacing them ensures optimal performance, minimising the chances of accidents or loss of control.
- Extend Component Life: Neglecting damaged or leaking shock absorbers can lead to further complications and potential damage to other suspension components. By addressing issues promptly, you can prevent additional wear on your forks, springs, suspension links and other related parts, ultimately extending their lifespan and reducing the need for costly repairs in the future. Remember, if your suspension leaks oil, there’s nothing left to stop the metal internals grinding away.
- Optimise Handling and Control: High-quality shock absorbers provide a smoother ride and improve handling and control. Their adjustability can tailor them to any surface, whether navigating urban streets, cruising on highways or tackling changing off-road terrains, properly functioning shocks allow for better traction and steering response. Overhauling or upgrading your shock absorbers can help you achieve the precision and confidence needed for any riding condition.

Shocks from all origins – from the factory to aftermarket options and more
- Twin Shocks: Many older motorcycles use a swing arm with a coilover damper on each side.

We have a range of different lengths available with options available to buy online.
- 1-way adjustable: Set up your rear suspension system quickly and easily for most riding with a single adjustable knob that lets you change the compression and rebound damping together. You can tune your suspension system to your liking with a setting for soft or firm options and everything in between.
- 3-way adjustable: For the professional rider who likes to fine-tune every element of their motorcycle’s suspension system, these shocks will give you total control, so you have the perfect settings for the ride you’re looking for. With high-speed compression, low-speed compression and rebound damping clickers, these coilover shocks are perfect for the avid rider that loves different on and off-road terrains and wants to adjust every element of their suspension system to suit.
