The new 2016 range of Triumphs do have better rear springs, but they are still underdamped in our opinion.
Not only do these units look great they have improved damping performance and are lighter than the original units.

Good quality product, excellent value for money. Very easy to fit and a great scale for adjustments. Great company support too.
My reason for buying the TEC Alloy Shocks for my Triumph Bonneville T120 (2016) was to try address what I describe as the “boingy boingy”, the bounciness I experienced when riding some of our UK roads where the surface is uneven and has lots of repairs or pot holes. I found that the bike would just sort of start bouncing around, hard to describe but you probably know what I mean(?), the “getting out of shape”?
Fitting the new rear shocks was easy and has greatly improved the handling. I would not say it’s a “transformation” like some, it’s still a Bonneville, it’s not transformed into a Street Triple or some such bike, but it is definitely much better, even more so now I’ve “run in” the springs and applied some pre-load. When the road gets rough the bike is more stable and does not get “out of shape” on good roads it feels really good.
I think weight of the rider plays a significant part, a friend has a T120 and is only 75kg, he has no problems with his bikes suspension, unfortunately I’m 95kg, I think that 20kg extra making a big difference.
The shocks look good on the bike, I thought they might look too modern on the classic Bonnie, but they look perfectly in keeping. They also look well made. So for the price they are very good value and I have no qualms in recommending them. You could get Ohlins at 4 or 5 times the price but would you notice the difference? I doubt it, and after all it’s a Bonneville not a sports bike.
I also fitted the progressive front fork springs, I noticed less difference with these but I had already fitted the rear shocks. However so impressed am I with the rear shocks I think I will buy the TEC fork preload caps so I can pre-load the front springs a little which I think will improve things a little more.
Many thanks TEC Bike parts!
Bought these for my T120. Did not really need them for myself, they were for my pillion and they have certainly improved the ride for her. Extremely easy to fit even for an idiot like me. Great price and great delivery.
I bought the rear shocks, fork springs with adjusters, footrests and leavers. Helpful advice service before I bought and very quick delivery. Easy to fit in a morning and first impressions are very positive. The bike (Street Cup) feels more planted and refined and corners harder than before as the bounciness from the front has gone. Very pleased with the fit and finish, well made and a very reasonable price in my view. Already considering my next purchase now the bike handles better. Thank you.
I got front springs & these shocks at the same time. No complaints anywhere. Easy to fit & after a couple of rides up & down same street, adjusting a click at a time, I got them perfect. Not a huge difference in the scheme of things but definately worth the money. Well pleased am I.
