Had 2 Escort shocks snap on me before.
BGM now for the past 7/8k and all still like new.
This type of Escort shock has a bad reputation for snapping at the top.https://www.google.co.uk/search?dcr=0&b ... YL09x3dseM:

Are there any adjustable rear shocks that you can just click adjust to firm, medium, hard?
I’m not keen on the idea of carrying round an adjustable tool etc to change the settings

So I bought a Carbone Sport rear shock with 3 settings. The price was very good but the 3 settings is a lie. Anyway, it’s improved the handling on the front but I’ve also ordered some front shocks.
I would like to think Scootering will do some articles on suspension. It’s so important for many reasons but it gets neglected IMO.

Protec for me. Although ive just fitted an R1 one for someone, all i can say is what a bloody awful idea, the bushes are s**t, you cant tighten the nuts up properly if you do it pushes the bushes through and the spring hits the mudguard.
