    Im looking to buy a new rear shock for a non-SE Troph, Australia based.

    Gday, Im looking to replace the rear shock on my non-SE, non-electronic, Trophy.

    Ive seen that HyperPro offer a spring kit, front and rear, but no shock and I dont see the point of renewing the spring and not the shock. I have contacted our local bike suspension experts and they havent replied nor seem interested in rebuilding my current shock.

    Ive seen that YSS makes Trophy specific shocks from Italy, via eBay.

    So has anyone here had some good experiences with shock/suspension retailers?

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    Sorry, but I can't help as mine is an SE and even though I've replaced it I stayed with the stock set-up as it suited me.

    I'm sure someone will be along shortly to help although I think the majority of Trophys have the active suspension of the SE version.
    Love, light, and kindness,

    Dave

    Hello,

    My rear shock on my Trophy SE blew yesterday on the way home from work, oil went all over the rear tyre and break. Fortunately was able to limp the last 20 miles home. Hopefully just a seal gone on it. I'm going to be contacting Brook Suspension here in the UK to see whether they would be able to do a refurb on it. If they can't I think I'll look at replacing the stock electronic suspension with one of the Nitron shocks that have full adjustable preload, rebound etc.

    Have you found any alternative products yet? Let us know, would be interested to see if you find anyone that makes an aftermarket shock to fit the Trophy. I'll be making a few phone calls too.

    Good luck! :028:

    Right, just spoken to Mark at Brook suspension. Unfortunately they aren't able to service the rear shock. I asked for alternative non OEM options. Hyperpro shocks are the only brand he knows already making a shock and bracket that fits the Trophy. Brook Suspension will adjust the Hyperpro shock to your weight before delivering. Approximate cost 530 (more than half price the OEM shock).

    Only unknown is what error message the SE model will throw when it detects the electronic suspension has been removed. And will the forks stop being adjustable?

    Anyone got any experience removing the electronic rear shock? Did you have to do anything with the ECU?

    You do not have to touch anything in the control unit, replace the rear shock absorber and it will work like the previous one.

    Well, to replace the rear shock is somewhat complicated, it is not necessary to remove the fuel tank or disassemble much, it must be removed from the bottom and be very careful not to damage the preload oil hose.

    The rear shock on the non-SE Trophy is much easier to remove, not difficult to remove or reattach.

    Hi. I had my rear SE shock rebuilt as it was losing its comfort and my PIAM was starting to complain. I had it rebuilt and the difference was worth the cost. It was almost as good as when I bought the bike brand new. I'm in Melbourne and had it done by "Melbourne Motorcycle Fairings" here in Melbourne. Cost was around AUD600 in Jan 2021. Perhaps you could call them to discuss your options. I'm happy to assist if I can.

     Sancho,
    had Failed shocker on my 2013 SE and got great service from Firefox Racing at Keighley.
    They can do a FULL refurb on all the mechanical  parts of the shock including machining new Rod and reseal.
    While mine was there I chose a repowder coat of the spring, choice of colours!!
    Was GREAT Service and do courier delivery.
    Check/ search the forum for rear shocker replacement I think you will find a few guys on here used and were happy with their services.
    When I went and discussed with them they do a lot of the BMW bikes with similar set up.

     Firefox Racing, Waddington St, Keighley BD21 5LP       01535 606200

    Hope this helps,     Mike.

    PS.... A sod to strip off and rebuild and do all the pivot needle bearings and seals while you are in there, all the bearing & seal specs are in old posts.

    Andyrock,
    international postage may be a killer but the firm I mentioned in UK may well be an option for rebuild.
    Worth checking out??? not sure.
