Touratech Suspension Rear Shocks
When riders load up their Tenere 700 with gear for a trip, many will run out of pre-load adjustment while trying to set the sag properly. This is why Touratech shocks come with 15mm of preload adjustment, so riders can get the bike level and handling properly with a load. Touratech shocks are set up with a custom spring to match the rider and have low friction seals and PDS to ensure great performance in demanding conditions. The shocks are designed with heavy-duty components to ensure the Tenere 700 will go the distance. The Explore HP is a great upgrade to the stock shock on the Tenere. For those who want a remote reservoir with floating piston and high and low speed damping adjustment, the Extreme is the choice. Both are available in standard height and a 35mm lowering version. Retail $1,195 – $1,795.
Touratech Suspension Cartridge System
A complete replacement of the OEM fork leg internals with a high-performance closed cartridge system. The closed cartridge separates the air and oil to prevent foaming which ensures that your fork will have smooth and consistent performance even in punishing environments. Increased reliability from having the damping oil completely separated from the fork leg lubrication means that a leaking seal will not affect damping performance. Fully adjustable compression, rebound and pre-load allows riders to dial in the performance to meet their preferences. Available in standard height and a 35mm lowering version. Retail $1,795
Progressive Spring Kits & Lowering Kits
Progressive fork and shock springs offer a big improvement to the ride for a relatively modest investment. They allow the ride to be more plush at low speeds then get progressively firmer as the rider pushes the bike in corners or off-road. In addition to improving the handling of the Tenere 700 you can also get your feet closer to the ground with lowering spring kits from Touratech Suspension. Spring upgrades are available for the front, rear, or both ends of the Tenere’s suspension. Fork spring kits include application specific fork oil designed to optimize performance. Retail $149 – $389
