TRACTIVE PLUG & PLAY ESA FRONT SHOCK / Complete ESA Shock Replacement // R1200RT 2014-On

**TracTive Plug & Play 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**

The engineers at TracTive invented ESA for BMW back in 2005, so you can count on their system functionality. They have stronger and higher quality built ESA conversions, available in standard height as well as 25mm low.

TracTive ESA conversion benefits include:

  • Stainless steel reducer bushings (where the bolts pass through the mounting eyelets). Other companies use aluminum which is a softer material, and can contract or deform shape over time

  • The same reinforced seal head as used in the Touratech Adventure bike shocks (TracTive manufactures shocks for Touratech). This seal head is very robust, provides long life, and rarely develops leaks

  • 16mm induction hardened, chro-moly shafts. 16mm shafts are stronger and flow more oil through the pistons compared to smaller shaft diameters used on different brands

  • Many front shocks have 46mm bodies with the above mentioned 16mm shafts (where space allows). This allows for better cooling compared to the smaller 36mm bodied shocks used by some of the competition

  • TracTive shocks come with their own rebound motors. This means that (in most cases) the front shocks are a complete, ready to bolt in application. For the rear, only the preload motor needs to be harvested, so only the rear stock shock would need to be sent in to us to complete the conversion

  • Rear shocks feature a "PDS" valve - Position dependent Damping System - Utilizing a secondary piston, this system creates a "pillow" effect designed to progressively increase damping to reduce harsh bottom outs. This feature is normally found only in the top of the line "Extreme" Touratech shocks

  • On most applications, there is the option to replace a failed OEM preload motor with a TracTive Electronic preload motor or TracTive Hydraulic preload motor. This creates an option for those with failing OEM motors to retain all adjusting features on their ESA shocks

Long Overdue Product Review Tractive FRONT ESA

1st my Rear ESA Failed. Once I had it replaced the BMW Computer wouldn't detect my Front ESA. I called on a Saturday and Ted actually answered the phone to explain to me what could be wrong. Logically thinking if the BMW Computer isn't detecting the Front ESA.....then the Front ESA could dead. My RT would rebound and my ride was rough. I went ahead and purchased a Front ESA from Beemershop. Now I have matching ESA Front and Rear. Back on Cloud 9 riding like a Cadillac. Talk about losing the ride comfort and discovering it again!!!! Ted was very responsive and communicative with the product. I appreciate the customer service. Thankyou Beemershop

I put close to 1000 miles on the Front and Rear ESA. I am riding on Cloud9/Cadillac again. Unbelievable what a difference the dampening /ESA makes.....Makes me appreciate the suspension technology much more. Stay Safe and thank you for the customer service. I am definitely Glad I found your company. Tyler L. 2017 R1200RT-LC

Hi Ted, I ordered a set of Tractive Shocks (Dynamic ESA) from you (for 2015 R1200RT-LC) at the BMWMOA Rally in Hamburg this past year. After the riding season this year (November) I coordinated the process of sending in the rear shock and subsequent shipment of the new Tractive Shocks with Jeff Favorite. He was very easy to work with and provided great customer service. I recently received the new shocks and after installing the rear shock I coordinated the installation of the front shock with Countryside BMW. Over the years I have installed and or had numerous motorcycles with modified suspensions. FOX, Works Performance (shows my age lol), Penske (along with the forks both modified by GP Suspension), Wilburs and numerous Ohlins shocks have been installed on my bikes. With out a doubt the shocks from Tractive are the best suspension modification I have ever had on a motorcycle. The suspension is much better than the stock suspension was when it was new. At the Rally Jeff Favorite said the bumps on your favorite bumpy road would basically disappear and they have! At the same time the suspension seems well planted and predictable through the curves. I have done a dozen or so track days over the years so I enjoy going quickly through the curves and the Tractive suspension seems like it will perform exceptional well at speed. It was 38 degrees when trying out the suspension so I did not push it much through the curves but what I did experience indicated the bike will be a lot of fun next year!! Thanks for the great service and great product.
