Integra - improved rear shock.

Recommended Posts

In the quest for an acceptable quality of ride / comfort, I have fitted an M - Shock  rear monoshock unit. I gave them mine and the wife's weights and an allowance for luggage.

First ride was solo, and the improvement was quite noticeable. Yesterday we managed a two up ride around the Peak District, and the improvement was very marked. The ride is now more 'composed', more settled. I am hoping this will provide a more relaxed riding experience, as I won't notice the bumps and bangs that were a feature with the original shock.

Incidentally, I followed Trisaki's advice and changed the front fork oil to 5 grade with 140mm air gap which improved the front end feel.

Overall , the Integra is much improved.

While you were there did you grease the shock linkage?
