The Ralle-Moto brace is a good solution for stock shocks. I also make a strong kit for stock shocks.
My kit is also convertable and designed for Elka, Ohlins, Hyperpro, WP and Wilbers shocks. So if you have a stock shock get the brace from David Peterson of BestRest Products or my kit. If you go aftermarket shock please PM me for a best solution.

Easy install with a 6" vice to press and remove bearings with metric sockets. Price $68.00 (includes domestic shipping) and I use PAYPAL to get paid.

All I need is the shock type you have and your shipping address PM'd to me.

Ok so we have 7 members interested in a kit:

YetiGS
Eddyturn
gr8ridn
MotoRiley
Ducksbane
John3500
Anodyne

I need 3 more members with interest and I will get working on another batch of 10 made. It will take 3 weeks from the day I start on them and up to a week for shipping domestically.

Easy install with a 6" vice to press and remove bearings with metric sockets. Price $50.00 send a check in my return envelope that comes with the kit after you get the kit installed or ship the kit back.

Need a few more members and I will get working on it.

All I need is the shock type you have and your shipping address and
Do you do PayPal? (No problem sending a check, it's just so easy w PP.)

No Paypal account. I really dont want to make more kits but this thread wont die. I hope I can get the kits to the guys that are going with Elka, Ohlins, Hyperpro aftermarket shocks. Check or Money Order after you get the kit.

While we know stock shocks bend bolts, although not with the same "regularity" as Ohlins. And a RM Brace failed with an Ohlins shock. Those two sentence are facts, right?

Having said that, I may have missed something here on this discussion where someone knows that the RM brace is guaranteed to work with the stock shock. Couldn't it be the case, in a most optimist scenario, that the stock shock is less likely to be bent with the RM Brace?

Indy, your solution is elegant and apply a type of reinforcement that dissipates the force to a larger area, where it counts the most. Hope it works.

JohnGil will have his kit by the end of the week and he can try and bend it and report back to this thread soon. I know that a large load will break the 12 mm bolt in shear at the nut side before bending the 20mm extended race in the kit.

Just got back from my Sunday ride which included a lot of gravel and 2-track

Your idea is stellar, Indy. Seriously, good work my friend!!

Next batch is in the works.

Based on the interest above I am going ahead with making 10 new kits for Elka, Ohlins, Hyperpro.
Shipping will start in late April early May.

The outside diameter of the Elka bush is 22mm, do you want me to send you a photo for confirmation? or doesn't this matter in the overall scheme of things?

TIA
The bushings will not be reused. I just need to confirm that the bearing is pressed into a 26mm bore hole. The stock shocks use a 28 mm O.D. bearing and the Ohlins and Hyperpro use a 26 mm O.D. bearing. I think Ohlins, Hyperpro, and Elka all use a standard spherical bearing that is 20 mm I.D. and 26 mm O.D.

Is there enough room to insert a carbon-fiber sleeve that would span the width and reinforce the bolt?

There is no room for a sleeve larger than the bolt due to the inner race diameter of the shock bearings. The solution I recommend is to use a 20 mm diameter race bearing sleeve ( bored for the 12 mm bolt) which acts as an extended bearing race for the frame span and supports the bolt from bending. This requires replacing the stock bearings with open design needle bearings which have an outer bearing race and needles with o-ring seals on the ends but no inner bearing race. That allows us to put a hardened bearing race sleeve that spans the frame mounts and take all the bending load off of the bolt. This is critical for the aftermarket shocks that use spherical ( ball joint ) style bearing versus the stock shock which supports the bolt over a 30 mm span from bending by using a rigid bushing mount.

Due to popular demand I will be making another batch of 10 kits for June shipment.
So PM me if you want to get on the list.
Specify stock or aftermarket shock.

Im thinking of getting this Bitubo one, BW037CYU32 (with black spring)
Anyone have any idea what the top bushing on this one looks like compared to the others. Would Indys solution be incompatible with this shock?

My second batch of 10 kits are going out in the mail to the members on Monday.
The third batch has only 7 kits left and will go out in June. PM me if anyone needs a kit from the third batch.

Based on the Bitubo shock in that picture I suspect it has a 26 mm O.D. spherical bearing just like Ohlins, Elka and Hyperpro. If CLS3 could measure it when the shock comes in and let me know so I can get a brearing specd for the Bitubo shock as well. The stock shock is a rigid 28 mm O.D bearing.

Got mine for the stock shock. The hardest part of the whole installation was pressing out the bushing from the stock stock.

It's a perfect fit and looks great. I've bent 3 bolts so far so it won't take long form me to report back on how well this kit works, but I'm confident.

Thanks, Indy!
