This high-quality overland-style rear shock,and manual hydraulic preload adjuster,made exclusively for Rally-Raid Products by Tractive Suspension in Nederlands,has been specifically designed to adress the requirements of the overland rider.The need for a rugged,simple to operate rear shock absorber,coupled with a unique hydraulic preload adjuster,which can adjust the preload on the rear spring by up to 10mm with the simple turn of a remote knob. This can give the rider the easy option of adjusting the preload on the rear shock absorber to cope with the regular changes in the bike load that they can expect when using the KTM 690 Enduro as an all-round overland bike,such as changes in luggage,pillion and fuel weights,along with changes in surface conditions,from tarmac road right up to extreme off-road riding,without using any special tools. It uses our own CAD designed shock body top,to give the correct clearance between the KTM 690 airbox,fuel tank and frame. Also fitted,as a standard feature,is Tractive Suspensions own unique length adjuster,incorporated into the lower shock mounting.This allows the shock length to be reduced by up to 8mm, by undoing the locknut and winding in the lower mount.This 8mm adjustment at the shock equates to a reduction of 28mm at the rear wheel,allowing the rider to personalise the ride height to suit conditions.No need for any internal shock modifications,or after-market linkage parts to reduce ride height. It is designed to give 250mm rear wheel movement, on all models, when the full length of the shock is used, if the adjuster is used to reduce the shock length, and so reduce the seat height, then it may reduce the rear wheel stroke. Tractive utilizes only best materials, top suppliers and highest available technologies. All basic components are manufactured from the highest quality aluminum alloys or stainless steel. The piston rods are made from CrMo alloy to achieve the best possible strength and ductility at the lowest possible weight. Springs are wound from the most superior material available on the market featuring lightest weight at longest life. Tractive shocks are based on 4616 system, meaning a piston diameter of 46 mm and a piston rod of 16mm. Dimensions that guarantee a perfect balance between performance, endurance and adjustability.
