Motorcycle Shock Shaft Dust Wipers

Motorbike shocks use a damping shaft that slides inside the main shock absorber body. To keep all the oil and nitrogen pressure inside the damper there is a lower seal head assembly between the two.

Rear dampers have multiple lines of defence in there - an oil seal deep inside, a dust wiper on the outside, a rod bushing to keep it all sliding concentrically, a rubber o-ring sealing around the outside and a rebound top out bumper facing inwards. That bump stop can either be a rubber ring or a small steel coil spring, and it's job is to make sure no damage happens if the shock piston bumps into the bottom casing (like when you jump the bike).

Hard rubber outer dirt wipers scrape away grit and corrosive mud preventing it from grinding and pitting the chrome damping rod of your rear shocks - protecting the softer inner oil seals from damage and eventual leaking. We offer genuine factory KYB and Showa mud scrapers, as well as OEM components from WP Suspension.

These separate individual servicing parts are great for people who are fine tuning, but remember that we also have oil & dirt seal combos as well as complete shock overhaul kits.

To service the coilover end case you will need to remove the shock spring, so read our article on how to do it safely. It's a perfect opportunity to swap springs to the right spring rate for your weight too.
