Would be nice to actually be able to get something locally for once.
Technoflex makes a gs shock...
"I'm your Huckleberry"
David Knight has WP on his Kawasaki KX450. Juha Salminen has WP on his BMW 450X. But those guy are ultra fast.
...and probably none of us here have the ability to buy the suspension they're using, let alone afford the suspension they're using.
I emailed the home office again and no responce as of yet
I bought one for my VStrom just before I gave up on the bike and sold it. Some guy named Blair did a group buy in that forum. I'll see if can find him.
Hello, i make your suspension. I deliver Ohlins, technoflex and wp. And i custom make them also. You give me the bike type and use, plus driver weight, etc. and i calculate your shock for your needs. Please in PM.
well anyone that wants WP shock they now have them out unfortunately they don't have 1 for the 658 yet:ddog
This has been on my bike since I bought it back in October from the seller...
So who has installed the WP shock and how do you like it? Matt?
Probably a bit much to ask but if somebody has a comparison to the other brands that would be even better.
I wish I could afford that shock right now!
whatever happened too this little gem of a thread.... did WP cont making shocks and forks for the 800gs or was it a 1 time fluk?
OEM forks from MY 2013 on are WP' !
Just curious what is the stock spring rate and oil type + level (air chamber) in these forks (compared to the marzocchi before) ?
i think wp was lowest bidder for stock forks on the newer f800gs's...they are not in the same ballpark as the stock ktm's or the ones above that they make...
High quality fully adjustable WP Fusion shocks are still available, but they never had an off the shelf set of forks for the F800GS.
There are a couple of us that have adapted 48mm open chamber WP forks from KTMs, in various single or dual disc variations. I've supplied most (all?) of them, requires some custom parts and setup work but the end result is sweet. Very stiff and durable 48mm fork tubes, thick 26mm axle, very easy to find spare and aftermarket parts for since they are used on every KTM, every suspension shop can tune them and lots of aftermarket options are available for wheels, brake caliper, discs, fork tuning parts, etc. But, it's not the cheapest way to go.
I believe Marzocchi has moved away from motorcycle suspension to focus on mountain bikes exclusively. I've heard this from a few different sources. It would explain my BMW switched to WP on the F8.
Smart Stefan (Pierer) paid BMW with a fistfull of Euros and a bunch of leftover WP's when he buyed husqvarna. Part of the deal?
Anyone who knows the fork settings (spring rate/type oi + level) on the stock WP forks on the '13-'14 800GS?
Those set ups look epic ....as in how bmw should have rolled for stock set up....what is a ball park figure for these forks...lukas ....if you'd be so kind?
