What is the full length adjustment type?
By simplifying the structure, the "screw type", which has been mainly used for reasonable dampers, requires adjustments such as letting the spring play and preloading (shrinking) when adjusting the vehicle height.
These adjustment methods were prone to problems such as poor ride quality, bottoming out, and abnormal noise.
The "total length adjustment type" adopted by DAMPER ZZ-R allows the length of the entire shock absorber to be adjusted independently of the spring.
This makes it possible to adjust the vehicle height without changing the stroke amount, and there is no need to worry about troubles such as bottoming out.
Of course, as with the conventional screw type, it is possible to adjust the vehicle height and preload by expanding and contracting the spring, so it can be used according to the situation.
Overall length adjustable structure and advantages
The full length adjustment type vehicle height adjustment is performed by moving the lock position (B) of the lower bracket part up and down.
When the position of B goes up, the length (overall length) of the entire shock absorber becomes shorter, so the vehicle height is lowered by that amount.
With the full length adjustment type, even if the vehicle height is lowered, the spring length (A) does not change at all.
In other words, the stroke amount (movable range) does not change, so it is possible to achieve lowdown while minimizing changes in ride quality.
