Complete parts set for assembling 2 big-bore rear shock absorbers for XB808. Includes rear silver springs (C = 0.54).

The oversized big-bore shocks feature 18.5mm outside diameter shock bodies, externally threaded with an adjustable collar for downstops adjustment. The shock bodies are hardcoated, and features a new 1-piece alu shock cap.

The large 15.3mm inner diameter of the shock bodies ensures proper and consistent shock oil flow through the perfectly-round pistons, which move very precisely inside the smoothly-finished interior of the shock body. The result is more consistent damping characteristics of the shocks.

New big-bore pistons are manufactured from well-proven specially-formulated composite material to provide smoother action and durability. The well-proven molding production process is used to ensure perfect roundness of the pistons after production, so that the pistons will move perfectly inside the shock bodies for identical shock action in all four shocks.

The new shock membranes are now wider to fit the new big-bore shocks. The material has been also improved to guarantee the same damping characteristics from the beginning of the race to the end even after excessive overloads.

The lower shock assembly ensures that the shock rod will move very freely inside the shock body but at the same time will minimize oil leakage while keeping the dirt away. Two shock O-rings – manufactured from a superior silicone compound to allow ultra-free movement of the shock rod while still maintaining a tight seal – are installed in the lower part of the shock body and are secured with composite shims. The entire lower shock assembly is secured with the new lower aluminum shock cap which makes assembly/disassembly quick and easy. The aluminum lower cap features an internal protective “dust foam” which keeps the dirt out.

The shock shafts are thick and robust to ensure they will handle any abusive racing conditions and big jumps. The 3.5mm thick shock shafts are precisely machined from special high-tensile steel and afterwards are ground for a super-smooth surface to ensure very free and smooth movement of the shock shafts in the shock bodies.
