    Sachs Shock

    Hello All,
    Can i ask for help with the Rear Sachs shock for my 1130 Tornado,; My ride is too harsh so i am trying to soften it up,took some pre load out,went 30 clicks on the Damper,rear tyre pressure down to 35 psi, put a air hawk seat on.Ride is not bad now but i think it is bottoming out.
    Do i go after market shock and throw the Sachs in the bin or can i adjust the compression damping.My back can not handle a harsh ride so i tend not to take her out, appreciate any advice.

    It's more likely to be that the spring doesn't suit your weight . If the damping is working ok just get a new spring for your weight and set the static sag and rider sag correctly 🙂

    If not familiar with suspension set up there will be specialists over there who can help. Pretty sure the shock is rebuild able so respring at worst, and probably just some expertise required. Typical set up cost in the UK would be 35 to 50 quid.
    Pre Benelli, ZR50SL, RS100, BMW R50/5, RD400, CB350K4, GPZ550, CB900, 750 KATANA, GSXR750, FIREBLADE, TL1000S, 955i Daytona, GSXR 1100L, GSXR1000K6.....

    Now; 2003 900 Tornado, 2008 900 Tornado, 2009 CR 1130, 2010 1130 Tornado...and the diesels...Ducati 848 for when four italians are not enough... a 750 srad ....when 5 italians are too many.......and now an '81 Katana......for those mid life crisis days....
