TOURATECH DDA (Dynamic Damping Adjustment) EXPEDITION PLUG & TRAVEL SHOCK / Damping, Hi-Lo Compression & Electronic Pre-Load Adjustments

**The Plug & Travel ESA shocks are specially designed for the original BMW ESA equipment. This set replaces not only the dampers and springs, but also the BMW ESA equipment while retaining the original integration into the BMW ESA system**

**Touratech's DDA system seamlessly replaces BMW's DDC (Dynamic Damping Control) System**

Touratech shocks are purpose-built shock absorbers for long-distance touring, with the fully-loaded Adventure rider in mind. These shocks have the strength, features, and adjustments to take you and your bike the distance all while providing the comfort and performance you need to be confident in your riding. All feature low friction seals, as well as cold forged 6082 T6 aluminum shock bodies. Mounting bushings are of high-strength stainless steel, ensuring that the mounting points of the shock are up to the task. These shocks can be owner installed and do not require extreme modification to the motorcycle.

**Please follow manufacturer's owner’s manual and install guides when installing shocks.**

Expedition level shocks include the following features:

  • Unique heavy duty hydraulic Touratech spring pre-load adjuster with 50% more adjustable range for the weekend ride, or long-distance trip fully loaded with luggage
  • Full service capability, ensuring consistent and predictable driving dynamics
  • Externally adjustable rebound damping
  • Independently adjustable high and low speed damping - For precise damping adjustment with very high damping frequency and high load (bad roads with additional luggage)
  • Remote Reservoir - Either piggyback or remote (hose) style (dependent on specific bike installation & mounting requirements)
  • Can be paired with a variety of spring rates to compensate for varying rider weights + payload requirements
  • Large 16mm piston rod made of chrome molybdenum steel for maximum strength and durability
  • Internal floating piston design - Damping oil and nitrogen are separated, which promotes consistent damping under extreme conditions

This shock resolves all of the handling issues on my 2015 BMW GSA
5 out of 5
Location:
Date: May 17, 2016
I've got a 2015 BMW GS Adventure, and was experiencing some handling problems where the front would "chatter" through turns, and it was impossible to have confidence in the bike. Ted Porter (The Owner) is one of the US's leading experts on Motorcycle suspension, and he has relationships with all of the major manufacturers. I spoke to Ted and he knew immediately what the problem was, and he recommended that we install the Touratech rear shock, with a much heavier spring. Once the installation was completed I rode the bike for about a month to be sure that there were no issues at all. After 6 weeks of riding on this engineering masterpiece, I would say that riding the bike now is like riding a completely new, and different motorcycle. The handling is much improved, and as I ride over bumps or non-compliant pavement the bike seems to simply gobble it up, never tossing me or letting me feel a negative response to the pavement at all. Much of the improvement comes from Ted's understanding of the geometry of the bike. He uses this knowledge to determine the root cause of the problem, and to make sure that he orders/spec's the right size diameter spring for the shock. The shock integrates with the bike's ESA system, and it feels great. I highly recommend this product!
