TLR250 shock rebuild

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Has anyone out there been able to rebuid the stock (Showa) shocks on a TLR250 ??

I have bought some NJB Trick Shocks which are great, BUT the longest I could buy were still a bit shorter than the stock lenght of the TLR shocks.

This has upset the steering geometry & my bike now steers like a bus.

I have dismantled my stock TLR shocks as much as I'm capable of; does anybody know if you can buy seals?  Shaft is 12.5mm.

It looks like the cap will spin off the shock body with a special tool.

 

Thanks,

Gary B.

Yes, i have rebuilt mine. Cap can be tapped off. Tricky getting old seal out but can be done. Can't remember where i got new seal. Mine was TLR200, but same principle.

Thanks Tony,

Was the cap threaded or did you just prise it off?

I was going to make a tool to spin the cap off if its threaded.

 

Cheers.

My memory is rubbish, but 90% certain it is a push fit. And then i think there is a circlip below that.

Why not contact Falcon shocks and they will supply you the correct length or give me an e-mail as I have a spare pair on my garage shelf cheers

Hey Kickstart, it all,came down to cost when I bought the NJB shocks. Plus we had seen quite a few pairs of Falcon shocks fail in a very short time in Australia. 

PM sent with my email address.

Thanks Eagle,  Not much oil left, so I'm not expecting much gas, BUT I have a friend looking at them that rebuilds CBR250RR shocks, these have an "Internal" gas bladder so he knows what to look out for.

Cheers,

Gary.
