Rear Shock - Issues (sounds like a chicken.)
« on: May 07, 2018, 01:12:57 pm »
A Bit of help please gentlemen
2013 LCA with 31000kms on clock.

When i bump bike up and down there is a cluck noise when the bike come back up to the top.. almost like there is supposd to be a bumps stop at top but its missing.. now it clucks...
When my mate jumps his up and down its slows down and stop before the cluck .. so no cluck.

Is this normal on a bike with 30k on clock.?

Hi There,

It is a bit hard to assess from here in Gangsta's Paradisio........
But if you need it repaired Bling King is the only workshop in the country that has replacement seal heads for the effective repair of the R1200GS/A LC's suspension.

With the advent  of the Dynamic ESA system the shock is a lot more complicated to repair than it's former oil cooled brethren. You absolutely HAVE to replace the seal head internally. Because we are the WILBERS AG South African importers we have access to these parts because of Wilbers collaboration with ZF Sachs - the original manufacturers of the shock and thanks to my going over to Germany for training I am well versed on the internal repairs of these.

If it is the ESA drive motor - we are also one of the few that has the seal kits to and knowledge to repair these.

We also have an almost brand new rear LC shock for sale at R 10K as opposed to the R39K that BMW ask.
We can be contacted on 011 234 8161 or Denver@blingkingbikes.co.za
