    R26 rear shocks dampened?

    Hi all. I am new to the /2's. I have done a search but found no answer so I will just ask. I have a 56 R26. Do the rear shocks have dampening? And if so are they rebuild-able?

    The rear shocks should have damping, but no, they are not rebuildable. And I'm not sure what's available as a replacement. On the twins, Works Performance makes a damper unit and Mark Huggett (www.bmwbike.com) in Switzerland has dampers. You might check to see if either has something for your single.

    And Ikon. I think the Ikon shock is rebuildable, too.

    Looks like they use the same shocks as the R50 and R60.

    Originally, the singles had different units than the twins.

    R26 dampening

    Thanks for the replies and the links. Ikon shows 76-1291's for the R26 same as the R50. The link to what a slinger actually looks like was also very enlightening. Some of us need a picture to understand
