Wow! These are great and your documentation of the repair is excellent. Seems that Honda really stepped up theimprovements on the rear shock.

I wonder what if any of these newer shocks could be mounted with the older TA's?

Also, you have some beautiful riding areas in those videos!

650 rear shock on 600?

Does anyone know if a 650 shock will fit a 600?

The 600 is a later model ('98), so not sure if shock spec/dimensions differ from earlier bikes sold in US

I've only seen one 650 (that belonged to O'Hooligan...and since sold) but I remember the rear suspension linkage as being very different from the PD06 (USA 600) Transalps.

So, unless there is something I don't recall correctly.....I'd say...NO

Ta650 rear suspension

Hi Danyila..

great pics of the shock rebuild..why did you do that? did you change the original set up?..

over on xrv.org we would be very interested in a full report as we all like to modify the rear suspension but no not how!! other than expensive aftermarket shock..

I trail ride my ta650 all over europe and the rear shock is big weakness..longer travel would be great and the compression rebound is useless..

cheers

There are 52000 kms in my motorbike. The rear shock hasn't been removed yet. There hasn't been any oil change. At the tour in Albania in 2012 in the mountains the rear shock lost its function. Oil didn't leak, only 13 bars nitrogen decreased to 2 bars but it didn't revealed until we got home. Reduced height. The Givi rollbar hit the ground. Slap rock.









The reason of this accident was that the nitrigen gas leaked out and the oil was too old.
The tension assembly nut was at 50 % (it's the origin Honda parameter). My weight is 95 kgs + bags, 130 kgs total. Height 186 cm. At field 50% isn't enough we need to rise it to 75 %.



13 bar Nitrogen. After repair.


The repair of the shock was made at a professsional garage (http://proflexservice.hu/index.htm) where race cars are repaired usually. The oil from the first shock doesn't fit in the rear shock because the oil of the rear sock is really special.

During working its temperature can reach 100 C degrees offroad. In the rear shock the oils was changed and the special O ring was produced by ourselves with a CNC lathe machine. It's a very cheap part but very important. This prevents the oil from leaking. It is really important that no air remains in the oil area of the shock.
After the repair the rear of the bike got much higher, only my toes can hit the ground not my whole foot. The offroad speed rised two times higher.

Indeed!!
As nothing more than a lurker here I am amazed at the effort that people put into this thread.I have downloaded the pdf and am sure it will be of more value to me than the shop manual.
Thanks

Thanks Eric, Can't wait to check it out. Your effort will keep many simple people, like me motivated to keep the deserved Ta's rolling on...
