Hi,

Does anybody know if the rear shock absorber on the R1250R is the same as that on the R1200R LC - or at least whether the dimensions are precisely the same?

I want to upgrade my non-ESA rear shock but I can only find aftermarket shocks for the R1200R LC. They are not listed yet for the R1250R.

I’m pretty sure that the frames are the same so I guess the rear shocks are indeed identical, but does anybody know for sure?

Jack

You can check the AS Cycles parts fiche to see if the part numbers correspond, @Fazerboy

Well, if you mean report back as to whether they are the same then yes, the rear shock for the R1200R/RS LC appears to be the same as for the R1250R/RS as the part numbers are the same.

If you mean report back if and when I get an upgraded rear shock fitted, that may take a little longer. I’m looking at getting a Nitron R2.

I changed my springs to Wilburs front and back a few years ago, Not a cheap exercise but excellent results . Assume they have for the 1250

Ted Porter provided a Tractive for me for my 1250R.

Like it very much!
