Honda shock absorber


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have a Honda 125 Pantheon I am doing a few jobs for the MOT.

The rear adjustable shocker is seized. It is dry and working fine but cannot be adjusted is this a MOT fail? thanks John.

If it cannot be adjusted because of corrosion, it is a fail.

"..... a rear suspension component which is: 

a. loose, cracked, excessively bent, misaligned or excessively corroded"

Here, have a look - you might find it useful:


Have fun.

If it's not obviously corroded, leave it.......if the shock is still working, then the tester would have no cause to try to adjust it.

Ok will do, I thought perhaps if a passenger was to be carried the tester might say I couldn't adjust it and fail the bike.

Will leave it and go for the test.
