What to do when ESA shocks need replacing

Works Performance now has availability of replacement shocks that are fully compatible with your ESA suspension. They will need your old shocks to remove the hydraulic pre-loader and eye from the rear and the eye from the front shock.

Their pricing:

Rear: $649 + $100 for removal of the components from your stock shock and installation on the new.

Front: $479 + $25 for removal of the components from your stock shock and installation on the new.

You will have to send your old shocks in and they will be useless after the components are removed. The new Works shocks will be custom built to your weight and riding style. They also can be custom made to lower the bike up to 2".

They can provide replacement shocks for any ESA equipped BMW R or K-series.

If you are interested you can contact Darrell at (818) 701-1010

Randy,

Understand you are not endorsing the shocks. Can you provide any links to feedback on their products?

I really don't have any. There are many people in this community who have used Works shocks and have been quite happy.

I will probably put a set on my S this winter.

will the ESA settings still be functional, or does compatible just mean not putting up an error code??

All ESA functions of valving and remote preload are maintained.

Cool, I've just purchased my K-Bike so at some point I'll be interested in getting these. I'm not sure at what mileage though. The problem is that the deterioration is so slow that you don't notice it until you ride a new bike then the difference is REALLY there.

I had Works on my old RT and they were nice. At least they are rebuildable and they used to sell the stuff so you could do a new oil refill yourself if you had access to a nitrogen tank. They provided more of an adjustment range than the stockers on the RT and the large external spring was placed upon your weight.

I did have some initial problems with some adjustment nut on them for the RT, but they fixed it while I waited.
