    Needing new suspension

    Well my rear shock is toast. Error code after error and won’t reset and I’m sure the damping isn’t working anymore. What do you guy recommend as replacements?

    Öhlins? Track?

    I have absolutely zero personal experience with it, but on another board I am on a lot of people recommend Tractive - https://www.beemershop.com/product/tractive-esadda-plug-play-rear-shock-requires-the-oem-preload-adj-s1000xr-2015-on.html

    go with Tractive for the Beemershop, just had mine rebuilt after 25k miles on. If you do the rear, you might as well matchup the front with a Tractive fork Cartridge as well.

    Ok, do you think I should go with the right fork cartridge as well?

    I went with a complete rear shock and left cartridge but had the right side seals and oil replaced .

    I went with this shock
    https://www.beemershop.com/product/tractive-ex-cellent-epa-rear-shock-factory-low-s1000xr-15-19.html

    Its has transformed the way the bike handles and rides.

    whichever way you go you won't regret it...if you decide to wait, shoot me a PM..I have the  OEM rear shock off my 2018 that I am considering selling

    Can it be used with the factory bags?

    I would be extremely interested in buying your OEM shock if it’s standard height.

    Yea ok.  Definitely interested. The preload is what went out on mine and that is the one part Teddy needs.

    Do you ride on the track at all?
