TRAIL, TRIAL & MOTOCROSS SHOCKS

We can supply shocks for most twin-shock off-roaders, and some monoshock models.
Many of the older bikes were never intended to see mud so the economy road shocks will be
suitable replacements. On this page are shocks fitted with softer springs
 and damped to cope with uneven surfaces.

BETOR ALUMINIUM
PRO TRIALS SHOCKS
Price 149.00/pair delivered.

 

These are the latest version of the old favourite. The steel bodies are chromed, and fitted with aluminium end pieces to save weight - only 200 grams saved, but it all counts!!. Redesigned internally as well, they are excellent. Plus the preload adjustment is now via threaded body rather than circlip, and the lower bushes are semi-conical to allow more freedom of movement.

Available in 340mm and 360mm length with a choice of either 40lb or 50 lb starting spring rates, although the springs are progressive and end up at around 80/90lb. 

Now also available in 350mm and 380mm lengths.

They have the same long 105mm travel and 12mm rod.  Bushes are fitted with 12mm steel sleeves. We can supply steel inserts to reduce the hole size to 10 or 8mm. Weight is around 2.3kg the pair.

They can be fitted upside down if required. Rebuildable, and fitted with schrader valves for you to set your own pressure if you have nitrogen available!!


 



 


BETOR ALUMINIUM
PRO-ELITE TRIALS SHOCKS
Price 269.00/pair delivered.

And if you want the best, take a look at these new-for-2012 PRO-ELITE trials shocks.  They have the same style and finish of the Elite shocks, and the same 35mm od dampers, but with two important changes which make all the difference.

First, they have ADJUSTABLE DAMPING - via 20 clicks of the slotted screw set into the top mounting - enabling you to find the setup that perfectly suits your weight and the terrain, and vary it for different conditions.

Second, instead of the 12mm rod that's standard on the Steel and Elite shocks, these Pro-Elite lovelies have a beefed up 14mm rod fitted for extra strength and positional stability.

Available in 340mm, 360mm and 400mm length with the usual choice of either 40lb or 50 lb starting rate springs. 

Feb 2015: Also now available at 300mm long, but only with 65lb springs.

Not cheap but the good stuff never is - -
269/pr delivered.

 

 

BETOR TRIALS SHOCKS
REPAIR KITs
Price 23.00 per shock.

It's a straightforward screw-in replacement for either, and comprises new shaft together with seals, damping control discs etc.

We're still trying to find out replacement oil quantities and recharge pressures......

 


PROGRESSIVE 13-Series Off-Road ShocksPrice 279/pair delivered.

Price includes bushes and c-spanner.



 

 

 OFF-ROAD MONOSHOCKS YSS from 299 delivered
 

Shocks for monoshock off-roaders are not too well served by the aftermarket manufacturers, probably because the bike models seem to change more often, so production numbers are smaller. And the shocks take more of a battering!

YSS are already making quite a name for themselves in off road applications as well as street bikes.  For example, we sell at lot of MZ366's for Honda CRF230 (2003-on), where the adjustable damping is a big improvement on the original shock. As is the MZ506 shock on Honda's newish dual purpose CRF250L (2012-on).

YSS monoshocks are all designed to suit each application. They have rebound damping and infinite preload adjustments, have a true quality feel and are rebuildable; and they come with a 2-year warranty. Built in Thailand to keep manufacturing costs down, they are excellent value,
