Customer Testimonials
R&G ShockTube

I have been using a R&G Shocktube now for many years, firstly on my 2014 BMW F800GS Adventure, and now on my 2010 BMW R1200GS Adventure.  When I changed the bike late last year it was one of the first accessories I purchased, in fact having rode the bike home it didn’t go out onto road again until the front and rear shocks had received a coating of ACF-50 and were safely wrapped up in a ‘Shocktube.’

‘Why?’ I hear you ask…

 

On trading in my F800GS Adventure I learnt the benefits of keeping things nice, the dealer almost pulled my arm off for the bike and had it sold within a day or two or me handing it over.  So the easy sale for me meant I did fairly well against the trade in and was off down the road on my R1200GSA.  The bike was left in like new, the shocks looked as if they had just been fitted!

Therefore without hestitation I bought front and rear ‘ShockTubes’ for the R1200GSA.

On this bike they were an absolute nightmare to get on.

(Remember my own personal tip and give the shock a good coating of ACF-50 before putting the actual ‘ShockTube’ on.)  

I had to get the better half to help out as my hands were just too big to get in at the shocks and get the cable ties on, so if you have big hands remember to get some help from someone with small grippers!

Once on though you can rest easy.  I have already given these a good trial, taking the bike to Wales in February (2017).  There I got very accustomed to riding in the rain.  Rain + B Class roads = muck, dirt, dust, sludge, water – you get it. 600 miles later of constant rain and the bike looked like this…

And that is after drying out!

With such conditions you have the nightmare scenario of dust and dirt, mixing with water to make a horrid grinding paste.  Imagine that paste on your shocks, up and down, up and down like sandpaper on the shocks.  Horrible.

This is where the ‘ShockTube’ comes in and excels.  That previously mentioned horrid paste can now only get as far the ‘ShockTube.’  Your shock now is protected and free from dirt and grime.  Any water that gets through the neoprene ‘ShockTube’ simply just gets dried out with the air flowing through it, so you don’t need to worry about it remaining soaking wet in there.  (You also have a second layer of proetction in there coming from the ACF-50).

I gave the bike a good rinsing off and then took the ‘ShockTube(s)’ off.  What I was met with was no surprise…

As you can see from the first photograph, even after a thorough rinsing the ingredients for the damaging paste still exist.  Without the ‘ShockTube’ that grime would continue to work and damage your motorcycle.

From the second photograph you can see the inside of the ‘ShockTube’ and hopefully you can see that there is no grime, dirt, dust etc there, so the barrier action of the ‘ShockTube has worked magnificently.  None of the damaging dirt and grime make it to your shock – you are protected.

And here is the shock, (the photograph taken as soon as the ‘ShockTube was removed) – looking exactly as it did before it was covered.

For me the R&G ShockTube is an easy product to recommend.  I have one on the front and rear of my bike, and it will continue to be one of the first accessories I will buy for any future bike –  You can protect your shocks with a good coating of ACF-50 and a R&G ShockTube for less than £35.
