19mm SHOCK SHAFT KITS FOR SX/AX/FMX

The stock 16mm shock shafts found on most modern stock shocks are at risk of bending under the extreme circumstances of modern Supercross, Arenacross and Freestyle competition. Thus the Race Tech Pro Series 19mm Shock Shaft Kit was born, and ultra-durable shock shaft to withstand the rigors of Supercross and Freestyle. The RT Shaft Kit is 40% stronger than stock shafts! The RT Pro Series Shock Shaft Kits also include a built in Rebound Separator, and a spring top out (instead of the stock hydraulic setup for KYB units). This provides a more free initial movement for less harshness.

These units are FOUR TIMES STRONGER than the stock posts and are a must for Supercross, Arenacross, and Freestyle Motocross.
