This high-quality adventure-style rear shock,made exclusively for Rally-Raid Products by Tractive Suspension in Nederlands,has been specifically designed to give increased performance under the extreme conditions experienced by adventure riding,with rough terrain, heavy luggage and extra fuel,and offers many advantages over the KTM 690 Enduro White Power OEM unit. 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. It uses our own CAD designed shock body top,to give the correct clearance between the KTM 690 airbox,fuel tank and frame,as well as allowing easy access to the MX-style high & low speed compression adjusters. 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 seat height, 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. 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. It can be fitted with no other modifications to the bike required, and offers several improvements over the OEM shock.
