Front shocks gave me big SHOCKS -- up lorry at 40,000km!

Recommended Posts

OMG!!! just a bread n butter small hatch back, tracked for fun once and covered only 40,000km in five years but now f shocks gone....

 

My only "abuse":- sometimes accelerated hard half way going thru road humps but got slowed down a bit before humps.

 

Any bros' shocks lasted shorter?

Up lorry means....?

 

My previous ride never track, never abuse, drive normally but squeaks at 40000+ km also, abit noisy minor oil leak but still workable.

Actually S'pore roads are going from bad to worse,bumps here & there,40k Km is about average..furthermore you going on tracks,a big 'killer' of shocks.

Could also due to the age of the shocks? 5 yrs is quite good, for bikes, they normally service their forks and shocks yearly.

Mine also lasted 5-6yrs about 40k km. reason being the bump stops disintegrated and it allowed the shock to fully compress. Thus it got damaged after a while. My rears were ok.

mine replaced lesser than than and less than 2 years. but still have the sound.

solve after shock absorber mountings and bearings replaced.

 

after that no more speeding over humps.

Mine 185km and 4.5 years and still going strong. I always go slow on humps to preserve machinery.
