Ohlins STX 46 Adventure Shock Absorber For The Africa Twin CRF1000L (2016-2017)
The brand new and much sought after Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin has finally landed at bike shops around the world. Öhlins decided to tune up the rear suspension so you can maximize this adventure bikes performance. To do this, Öhlins suspension engineers have developed an STX 46 piggyback shock absorber with a remote spring preload adjuster. With both compression and rebound damping adjustment, you will be able to fine tune your ride experience.
If you want a lower set-up on gravel roads to improve stability or if you prefer a higher ride on tarmac roads to make the Africa Twin more agile that is easily changed with the remote preload adjuster. This feature also comes in handy when adding a passenger or luggage to the bike.
The rear shock swallow’s everything from road vibrations and small bumps to bigger bumps and G outs, experienced during off-road riding, very effectively. With a great improvement in comfort, the shock absorber makes those long rides much more pleasant. During acceleration and cornering you’ll clearly feel the improved traction and stability the bike gains from this shock.
It has a 46 mm piston and is available in a number of different applications with or without external reservoir either with a hose or in piggy back versions. It can also come with pre-load spring adjusters, all depending on the kind of bike and requirements of the bike.
