SeeRider,

The following was installed:

Touratech Suspension *rear* shock absorber for BMW R1200GS ADV from 2006 type *Extreme* Part Number 01-044-5872-0

Touratech Suspension *front* shock absorber for BMW R1200GS ADV from 2006 type *Level1* Part Number 01-044-5877-0

The initial setup is one up with side cases. I will need to ride more and then assess whether or not adjustments need to be made.


Zweirad Norton previously sold Hyperpros, which are also highly regarded. Touratech’s suspension is manufactured by Tractive Suspension which is a separate company from Hyperpro. Both are based in the Netherlands. The folks at Tractive are former WP Suspension employees (http://www.tractivesuspension.com/about_tractive_suspension.html)

I did go to Touratech’s main headquarters in Niedereschach and spoke to one of their technical experts and if memory serves me correctly he did state that the reservoir is out of steel. There is more information at the following link: http://www.touratech.de/nc/en/singleview/archive/2012/september/select_category/86/article/touratech-suspension-the-all-in-package-for-perfect-riding-fun/192.html.

I’ve found the people at Touratech’s main headquarters and Touratech Mitte very helpful. If one has a question just give them a call or call Tractive.
