Versatile, sporty shock absorbers, for many makes of moped!
These shock absorbers from MKX are almost universally compatible and suit mopeds such as the PIAGGIO Bravo and Superbravo, or also many types produced by PUCH, TOMOS or SIMSON.
The distinguishing features of the MKX shock absorbers:
- Various lengths: 260mm/280mm/200mm/320mm
- Delivered in pairs.
- 10mm diameter upper and lower eyelet fixings.
- 21mm eyelet fixing outer diameter.
- Includes eyelet reduction sleeves for 8mm fixings.
- Three settings for spring pre-load.
These shock absorbers are available in various lengths and with either a black spring including a black body, or a chromed spring and a chromed body. These aftermarket components from MKX are not only economically priced, but they also noticeably improve the riding safety and comfort of your moped when compared to the aged originals! The 10mm upper and lower eyelet fixings along with their 21mm outer diameter makes them compatible with numerous small-capacity two-wheelers. The additional reduction sleeves provide an internal fixing diameter of 8mm.
Altering the length of the shock absorber from the standard size also changes the geometry of the mopeds suspension, meaning you can raise or lower the rear of the frame and seating height by adjusting the size of the shock absorber.
Before you order any replacements, measure the originals length and fixing eyelet diameters.
Conclusion: Extremely well produced and functional, at an affordable price!
Do not forget – Our SIP–TIP:
- When replacing the shock absorbers, we recommend that the fixing bolts and rubbers also be renewed.
Feedback from the scene
“These 260mm long versions are a little shorter than the original shock absorbers on my PIAGGIO Bravo, a lowrider in a matter of minutes. The ride is noticeably more agreeable than it was with the thirty year-old originals!”.
