Rear Suspension
17.03.22 at 11:13:26
Hi Everyone, My TR1 rear shock is leaking, and looking for information on fitting another shock. Something common, like GSXR

Hopefully, there is an article on forum, that has information.

Thanks Trevor

Hi Trevor,

quite a few different shocks have been used on TR1s over the years. There's various BMW units, Triumph shocks and I personally am a huge fan of the early XT600 rearshock (43F, 2KF, 34L, 55W), which lifts the rear end by about 25-30mm. Only needs a new bushing on the swingarm side, but if you have a broken stock shock, you can swap those two bushings and be done with it.

Hope this helps
