BMW F 800 GS: Progressive 465 Monoshock

BMW F 800 GS Shock

The popular BMW F800GS sits at the top of the Adventure Touring segment and is more likely than most machines of this class to see hard touring and dirt under its wheels.

With that in mind Progressive Suspension created a shock specifically tuned to the needs of both rider and machine. Utilizing their proven 465 Series Monoshock, they’ve valved it, sprung it and tested the hell out of the shock until it transformed the ride of the small bore Beemers.

Progressive Suspension also added a Remote Adjustable Preload (RAP) that makes adjusting for a passenger or a weeks worth of gear a simple twist of the knob.

The 46mm bore shock is also stuffed with features like deflective disc damping, threaded body and a 5 position rebound adjuster. Setting it up to perfectly match your bike, weight and riding style is now a few clicks away. Includes remote mounting bracket. Stock height and lowered applications for F800gs as well as other BMW models.

Check it out on the Progressive Susupension website, or contact your local Progressive Suspension dealer for more information.

BMW F 800 GS: 465 Series Monoshock with RAP MSRP: $745.90
