Just heard back from the guys at FTR and got some very good info!

"Unfortunately with the WP factory being closed down in 2009 I'm afraid these parts are no longer available. We now use Yacugar Suspension (Ex-WP engineers ) - www.yacugar-suspension.co.uk Yacugar have bespoke built shocks starting from 375 + VAT."

Yes, I had to look up what "bespoke" meant cuz I'm not english, but so far so good, but they didn't say if they had one for our bikes. If so, this looks like a DAMN good deal, even with the exchange (375 = $600) depending on which model they are talking about...

Further inspection shows this and this shock are available for our bike, app chart here.


  • An emulsion shock for all applications.
  • Precision machined and quality checked.
  • Fully serviceable for a life time use.
  • Spring pre-load & rebound adjustment.
  • Optional length adjuster and hydraulic pre-load adjuster.
  • A top quality, fairly priced shock absorber.

and...


  • A race proven fully adjustable shock.
  • Spring pre-load & rebound adjustment.
  • Low and high speed compression damping adjustment.
  • Optional length adjuster and hydraulic pre-load adjuster.
  • Fully serviceable for a life time use.
