Wilbers Suspension BMW R9T Shock Absorber 640 Road

VERY IMPORTANT! Wilbers produce their shock absorbers to order and offer a very wide range of options to make sure your suspension is a perfect fit. As their suspension is made to your requirements, these are non-returnable and we will contact you to confirm your details once you place your order. If you have any queries or specific requirements, please contact us before ordering.

We can only ship these within the UK because they are pressurised, please get in touch if you are outside of the UK and will aim to put you in touch with your local Wilbers centre. If you order this product from outside of the UK and we have to cancel your order, then we will charge you a 10% restocking fee because we do not get a refund on our processing fee from our selling platform.

This rear shock will only fit the BMW R9T Roadster 2014-16 model. Please see other listings for alternative R9T models.

  • Wilbers Adjustline rear shock absorbers are a game-changer on the BMW R9T - that's why we run both of our BMW R9T track and road bikes with Wilbers suspension.
  • The radial piston, wet run, teflon guided self-aligning bearings and other features redefine the quality of a standard shock.
  • Spring preload and rebound damping adjustable
  • Choose standard height, +25mm lift or -25mm lowering version.
  • Choice of preload adjusters available, see below.
  • Wilbers ride-height-adjustment possible; the length of the shock absorber can be modified over a thread located at the lower shock mount for +/-5mm. Contact us for details.
  • Other colours available upon request, please contact us.

Lead time on this item will be around 10 -14 working days as they are produced to spec. We can only ship these within the UK because they are pressurised, please get in touch if you are outside of the UK and will aim to put you in touch with your local Wilbers centre.



The Wilbers-PA solution maybe is the most comfortable way to adjust the spring preload. Using a hand knob that comes with a bracket specified for your motorcycle, you can easily adjust the riding level to match additional passenger and/or loading situations. The adjustment range is 10 mm.


The X-PA offers you the option to regulate the spring preload and therewith the vehicle level by the included box spanner in a breath. The purely mechanical adjustment mechanism is very light and, due to its robustness. The adjustment range is 15 mm.


The ZF-PA is a hydraulic spring tensioner that is directly integrated on the shock absorber. The advantage is that you do not have to mount an external hand knob to the vehicle. Easily reachable and adjustable without much force, this preload option can be tuned for up to 15 mm.

We supply parts and accessories worldwide. Some of our parts are sourced directly from the manufacturers or European distributors, as such, there can be a variable lead time when receiving an order. Please allow postage plus an additional 3-5 days when ordering.

We subsidise all shipping costs which means that we are unable to offer any discounts when it comes to shipping. In an event of an order being too large to use our regular courier services, we withhold the right to request an additional payment to be made before sourcing your parts. This will always be done before your order is ready to ship and you will have the opportunity to reject this order at this time.

In an event that your order is not as you were expecting please email us at

We accept returns so long as all items are in a fully resalable condition and are not fitted. In event of any warranty claims or damaged items being received, we will need to speak to the manufacturer or courier before processing any claims. We do not cover the cost of return shipping outside of the UK.

We are happy to cancel standard orders (not special order items) if you change your mind before your order has shipped. However, we reserve the right to charge a restocking fee of 5% of your order to cover the website handling fees that we are charged by Shopify.

Since January 1st 2021 ("Brexit") we have amended the way that we price and ship orders. We charge VAT within the UK at the local rate. Any purchases outside of the UK may receive a local customs charge. We operate and ship under the Delivered At Place (DAP), also called delivered duty unpaid (DDU), terms. This term indicates that the seller only takes responsibility for shipping the product, and requires the customer to pay any import costs, such as VAT, duties, and clearing fees. Please be aware of this when ordering. You will need to consult your local customs regulations to see what the possible customs charges may be as they vary from country to country.
