Reactive Suspension offer a range of high quality suspension tools essential for working on motorcycle forks and shock absorbers. Having the right tool for the job makes the task a lot easier, quicker and reduces the likelihood of parts being damaged.
Listed here are just some of the tools we have available. If you can't find what you require please Contact Us.
The Fork Spring Compressor Kit is an essential tool for servicing or changing springs in upside down forks. This kit consists of the fork spring compressor, damper rod holding plate and fork bleed tool.
For checking and adjusting the oil level on all conventional and upside down forks, the adjustable setting ring will measure oil levels from 0 to 300mm. The tool can also be used on MTB front forks.
We recommend Silkolene Race Suspension Fluids due to their extremely high viscosity index. A high viscosity index significantly reduces damper fade. The oil's excellent lubricating properties reduce wear and contamination.
This kit consists of a fork cap wrench and seal head tool for servicing and changing springs on Big Piston Forks.
A wrench to remove and replace the external compression housings on 2006-2015 Yamaha R6 forks.
The Preload Adjustment Stick is used to make quick adjustments to spring preload on shocks equipped with Traxxion Dynamics Preload Collars, or Penske Racing Shocks. It is made of durable stainless steel.
These rugged Seal Drivers are the standard of the industry, they are used to install seals, wipers and bushings in telescopic forks.
Available for 35/36, 39, 41, 43, 45, 46/47, 48, 49/50, 54mm diameter forks.
Holds fork damping rods, cartridges, shock shafts,etc. while servicing. Unique design allows installation of dowels into the top of the vice jaws. The holding tools hang on the dowels instead of dropping on the ground when the vice is opened. Made from aluminium so as not to damage shafts.
These tools prevent damage to the shock spring collars when adjusting spring preload, made from vanadium steel for high strength and durability, they are available with a peg for Penske or Nitron shocks or with a hook for all other shocks. We also have genuine Ohlins spanners for their shocks.
Seal bullets are an essential tool for sliding shock seal heads onto shafts.
It expands the seal to allow it to slide onto the shaft without
damage and protects the bush from sharp edges.
The sizes included in the set are: 12.5x10mm, 14x12mm, 16x12mm, 18x16mm and 18x12mm.
Bush drivers are used to install shaft bushes into seal heads without damaging the bush.
The sizes included in the kit are: 12.5mm, 14mm, 16mm,18mm.
The end cap tools allow the easy removal of bladder caps and end caps from shock absorbers. The 3mm Ohlins tool works with all Ohlins shocks. The Schrader tool works with Penske, KYB and Showa shocks. The tools have an oil resistant rubber ball on the end for good grip with oily fingers.
The 6mm Ohlins tool threads into the floating piston on an Ohlins shock allowing the removal of the floating piston. It is also used for bleeding the shock upon assembly. The optional depth stop attachment is used with the 6mm Ohlins tool for setting the floating piston position when assembling Ohlins shocks.
An oil measuring cylinder is the best tool to accurately measure the oil quantity used in closed chamber forks. It can also be used when blending oils to achieve a viscosity that sits between grades. The graduations are moulded into the cylinder so won’t disappear with use.
Fork cap wrenches allow the east removal of fork caps without damage. When we work on forks and see that the caps have been attacked with pipe grips, we fear the worst about what the internals will look like.
The compression assembly removal tool is used to remove and re-fit the compression assembly on Twin Chamber forks.
The finger plate can be used underneath the fork cap locknut on road bike forks to allow the easy removal of the cap. It can also be used on Twin chamber forks to allow the removal of the rebound adjuster housing.
A combined tool for compressing fork springs and shock springs. It’s the easiest tool we’ve come across for compressing fork springs on upside down forks. It can also be used for removing shock springs, saving the need to buy two separate tools.
This is a really good tool for the single handed removal and fitting of fork springs. On lots of bikes it can also be threaded down through the fairing allowing for spring changes in situ.
Soft aluminium jaws for clamping forks and shocks without damaging them. The jaws have a V cut out for clamping round fork tubes and shock bodies. The jaws are designed to fit a 4” Record vice.
The nitrogen filling tool screws onto the Schrader on KYB, Showa and Penske shocks or can be used with the needle attachment for Ohlins shocks.
Pin wrenches allow the easy removal of Ohlins fork caps and the seal heads on WP, Penske and TTX shocks.
Cartridge Holding Tools for stock and aftermarket cartridges.
The tool with four prongs suits Ohlins, K-Tech and Yamaha R6 2006-2015 fork Cartridges.
The tool with four dogs fits most Showa and some KYB road cartridges.
Please contact us if your uncertain on the cartridges you have, or the tool you require.
A tool to fully stretch a shock to measure it's eye to eye length accurately.
With many shocks now fitted with strong top -out springs a stretching tool is needed to fully compress the spring so that the length can be measured.
Tool to remove the high and low speed compression adjuster housings from WP shocks without damage.
Tool for inserting captive guide bushes in KYB, Ohlins and K-Tech Forks.
