During the development of the suspension for the BMW F 750 / 850 GS and F 900 R / XR, it quickly became clear that we had to break new ground. We imagined a shock absorber that could be operated by everyone in a simple and understandable way. The result: our new 642 S Competition shock absorber.
It has only one compression valve, which can be operated by hand. Why only one compression valve? Quite simply because it is much easier to adjust and still meets the requirements of the machine and the rider. Because this new high-flow pressure stage valve, as the name suggests, ensures a higher oil flow. This in turn has the advantage that the shock responds extremely sensitively without significantly restricting the adjustment range. In addition, the large, external reservoir ensures sufficient cooling of the damper oil even under the heaviest loads and thus a constant damper characteristic curve.

Apart from that, we have relied on reliable Wilbers technology that has been tried and tested over many years. In the basic version, the spring preload is infinitely variable by means of a hook spanner and the rebound damping is also manually adjustable in 22 clicks. Further options such as a hydraulic spring preload can be added via the configurator.

This makes the 642 S Competition ideal for long journeys with demanding road conditions and for off-road use, but also for ambitious country road riders. Last but not least, our individual tuning based on rider data ensures optimal handling for every rider weight and load condition.
You receive a 5-year warranty on the 642 S Competition shock absorber. Furthermore, our ABE makes an entry in the vehicle documents unnecessary. However, in the case of lowering, a modification inspection must be carried out at a T√úV station due to the shortening of the side stand.


The nonplus ultra concerning motorcycle shock absorbers! The upper mount consists of a milled part. It serves as a connection to the compression tank and houses the setup screws for the high- and low-speed areas of compression adjustment. With 22 clicks each they can be optimally tuned to your requirements! At maximum compression speed a pressure relief valve prevents the shock from hydraulic blocking and fends off uncontrolled jolts to the suspension. Rebound can be adjusted from the outside by 22 clicks. The spring basis is steplessly variable.
