The range or Falcon
shock Absorbers for Motocross bikes or this era have been built to include and update many of the features that became necessary
when long travel suspension was introduced.
The dampers have
been designed with a large bore (36mm). The bodies hold more oil and run cooler over long periods than the 32mm, bore shocks,
and the range of spring rate on the dual spring set up enables the rider to fine tune the springs, so as to obtain exactly
the right 'feel' to the suspension. Two types of damper are available in this range.
A straight damper
with the gas reservoir inside the top of the body, or the 'piggy-back' style, with the gas reservoir on the side of the shock
body, as part of the mounting bracket. This style of shock not only holds twice the oil volume as the straight shock, but
as the reservoir is away from the damper body, better heat dissipation is obtained, resulting in a cooler running unit with
more constant damping characteristics.
These types of shocks are available in lengths from
376mm - 445mm centres.
Longer special shocks can be built to order
