HYPERPRO REAR SHOCK advice
on: 21 March, 2021, 10:25:23 AM
Hi all!

Seeking feedback from members that have installed

“Hyperpro shock” and could give their feedback for me?   :020: :020:

I have replaced my front springs with Hyperpro progressive and am very pleased

I am now considering purchase of:

Hyperpro emulsion rear shock

see link and photo below:


2012, tiger 1050se
Rear 42 psi
Front 34 psi
New Michelin pilot 5 front and rear

The problem is:

My OEM rear shock (30,000 km) does not “glide” over roads that are slightly less than perfectly smooth and does not instill confidence on fast switchbacks.   :012: :006:

I ride solo always
10 kg in panniers always
I am 95kg, full riding gear always

I had Hyperpro upgrade my front forks and rear shock on my 2009 Tiger 1050 SE and never regretted paying the €€€

I bought this adjustable shock with remote preload. I have not actually tuned it yet other than setting the preload and adjusting it for load, so take that for what it's worth.

It feels good with the base settings. Overall happy with my purchase

That looks like a fairly high end one with seperate chamber and high and low speed compression, nice

Yeah, I'll admit it's not quite a one-for-one with what OP is looking at, but maybe it would help more than no feedback. Happy with the build quality, and the rebound adjuster. Much better than my old stock shock for sure.

I did think of something else as well:

I was a bit worried about the progressive shock, since the rear linkage is progressive by design. I decided to try to go for it because I sometimes ride two-up, and thought that it would be applicable across a wider range of my riding than a single weight spring. If you only ride one-up, it's worth considering getting the linear spring.
