    i had brought my bike for 32000km ins. and shop owner asked me if I had lowered my bike and I said no. I had also noticed the bike wasn't t the same height anymore. so he checked and comfirmed shock shot. took pictures and is sending to triumph, I'm still under warranty. anyone else have to replace rear shock, just curious? gotta wait 4 days for their OK for repair.

    Hey Chico, congratulations on a new shock en route. Quick question now that you have the Triumph Suspension folk on line so to speak. Can you inquire as to whether a different weight spring is available on the Triumph / WP config. I think there is an Ohio Wing boy who may be interested as well as some other folk on list who tend to carry a load near max GVW.

    If you can that would be appreciated.

    I have contacted Triumph NA and WP there is NO heavier shock spring available.

    I will contact Traxxion Dynamics next.

    It only takes a minute particle of grit or a rust spot on the Damper Rod to slice a groove in the seal and kill your RSU.

    I consider the the Rear Suspension Unit and Linkage is one of the most unprotected areas on the bike from the effects of Road Crud splatter....so have taken the precaution of fitting my own design of front and rear mudflaps to protect that area.

    The rear one is just an aftermarket mudflap secured to the rear of the undertray (where the Audio Unit is housed) to stop stuff getting thrown forward off the rear wheel, the front one is just a cover attached with a tie-wrap to the front of the Drag Link.

    They're not 100% effective, but much better than nothing at all....
