KTM Super Enduro Shock Replacment

For some time know we have been working with Touratech USA, as well as directly with Tractive Suspension on a rear shock replacement for the KTM Super Enduro.



As you know the SE was a limited production motorcycle with just over 2000 units sold worldwide. This is the main reason EVERY aftermarket suspension manufacture has passed on the opportunity to offer a shock replacement, as you can imagine the cost and time it would take to see a return is marginal.

That is up until now!

The Team at Tractive suspension are made up of over 10 ex-WP employees, some of the most innovative, brilliant suspension engineers on the planet.

This is not a unit assembled from a series of shocks, modified and assembled to fit the SE, this unit was engineered specifically for the Super Enduro, as well has gone through a rigorous amount of R&D.

As some of you may know I am the the Touratech as well as Rally Raid suspension service centers here in the US, so I have built a solid relationship with the guys over at Tractive Suspension, the manufactures of the Touratech and Rally Raid suspension lines. After discussing and much persuading the decision was made to develop a shock for the SE.

We discussed many options for the Super Enduro and decided to offer a unit in only the EXTREME level.

This unit features the following:



PDS bottoming control- a secondary compression piston very similar to the PDS systems found on almost every KTM (minus the SE and 690 models).

Adjustable High & Low Speed Compressions damping circuits.

Adjustable Rebound circuit.

Cold forged 6062 T6 aluminum body.

High strength stainless steel mounting bushings.

16mm high strength chrome-moly steel shaft.

As well as the addition of a remote hydraulic pre-load adjuster with up to 15mm of adjustment.



Pricing comes in at $1795.00 and available with the appropriate spring for your weight.

Utilizing this setup with our KM2 fork service dynamically changes the performance, and handling of your bike..

Please contact us directly at alex@konflictmotorsports.com or (425) 681-5160. This shock will be posted to our store early this week.

We will update this thread with photo's and some video early next week.

Thank you for asking that PDF we , we are currently geared up and heading out for a test loop of around 350 miles today, 95% jeep and very fast (upto 100 MPH) logging roads.

As our services are truly race tested, this unit is going to be run as our "Heavyweights" team is running the BITD Vegas to Reno on our shop KTM 950 Super Enduro.

Some pictures and video to follow as this is the very first Super Enduro shock off the production line.

KTM Super Enduro Shock Replacment

JRod,
We currently are offering the stock height.
Although a long travel shock with 275mm of travel, along with a long travel fork kit is in the works as well.
A similar setup is in the works for the 1190 R as with stock travel as well as a long travel option.

We have a local Super Enduro rider coming in next week to document the install as well and have him demo the shock for a week to give a real world riders review of the performance, and quality of this unit.

More to follow.

This unit is made by Tractive, all settings for the Touratech branded units get tested through a rigorous R&D process that include a large number of people, but the final decisions comes down to Lars Wudermann a extremely accomplished tuner and rider. His entire family is associated with the suspension world in one shape of form.

Lets try to keep the TT bashing to a minimum as honestly this unit would not be available without them.

No I don't think I will try.

I have a Tractive shock on my 690 and it is an incredible piece of engineering. My question was one of an interested customer who would like to better understand the roles of the parties involved.

I enjoy supporting Vendors on this board. I am impressed with Tractive, but wouldn't put a Touratech part on any of my bikes if they paid me.

Now that you have answered, I have made an informed decision

Thank you
