Motowoz Shock Parts Guide

Basic Shock Adjustment Procedures
shock bodies begin with high-quality, honed hydraulic cylinder tubing
that is CNC machined. The bodies are then polished and plated for a
superior look and full protection from the elements.The fully threaded
bodies allow for infinite adjustability, while also utilizing “Stub
Acme” threads, which are very resilient to damage.
quality aluminum billet parts are used throughout each MOTOWOZ shock.
High-quality material and precision manufacturing makes MOTOWOZ
components incredibly strong compared to some competitors’ stamped or
MOTOWOZ utilizes heavy-duty, alloy over-sized
shafts of 5/8 of an inch. All shafts are ground and hard chromed to
military specifications. This type of plating is extremely durable and
provides a smooth surface for the seals to ride on—extending the life
of the seal.
The “Big Blue Hose” that is
between the reservoir and shock is actually a rubber hose encased in
braided steel. Next, is another layer of rubber covered by a blue
textile braid. This hose is more resilient to breaking or pinching than
any other reservoir hose available in the ATV market.
– Ask anyone. Just about every ATV racer has “blown” a shock in the
middle of a race. Once a shock seal fails, the oil gets out, and the
ATV becomes all but impossible to ride. That’s why MOTOWOZ developed a
triple seal system. All MOTOWOZ shocks utilize two different types of
shaft seals protected by a third seal that acts as a scraper to shield
the sealing surfaces.
– MOTOWOZ has also addressed the problem of overheating which
previously caused the shocks to fade during use. During extreme use, a
shock’s temperature increases nearly 200 degrees above that of the
initial temperature. As oil temperature increases, viscosity decreases
creating a completely different functioning shock. MOTOWOZ tackled
these problems in the design stage. By choosing the correct oil and
seal types, MOTOWOZ offers a product that is extremely fade-free and
Compression and rebound adjusters
– These are the latest “buzzwords” in ATV shock technology. Many riders
are familiar with compression and rebound adjustments. They are often
called “clickers” (sometimes it seems all they do is click). On many
ATV shocks, compression and rebound adjusters offer very little of an
adjustment, making it difficult to tell the difference between the
hardest and softest settings. In contrast, MOTOWOZ compression and
rebound adjusters actually make noticeable internal adjustments. These
adjustments affect the rate of oil flow in the shock through the
compression and rebound strokes. Both adjusters also work in
conjunction with relief valves that make them velocity sensitive. These
compression and rebound adjusters, along with the MOTOWOZ spring
cross-over rings, make for an unbeatable racing combination.
