Sectioned Posted October 15, 2020 Report Share Posted October 15, 2020 Hi all, I'm currently converting an old Honda farm bike to trials form. The bike is a monoshock but as the linkage assembly was badly seized up and made from steel I had to cut it to disassemble. The shock unit is also quite heavy so will be chucked away. Some advice wanted please; what would be a good setup to use/modify? I was thinking direct mount so as to avoid clearance issues with linkage. Cheap and commonly available would be ideal. If I used a shock designed for linkage, would I get enough rear wheel wheel travel? I know there's lots of variables: mounting position relevant to swingarm pivot, swingarm length, angle of shock etc. I'm thinking a linear rate spring would be best but again I guess it depends largely on other factors? Does monoshock angle (pds setup) have any effect on traction? Lots of questions and I expect some experimentation will have to take place in order to answer them but any help will be much appreciated Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
