RWC Shock NB Kit, 15.75mm
$23.00

Our NEEDLE BEARING CONVERSION KITS are a new, better way of doing things. Our top quality hardened steel needle bearing take the place of the DU bushing. The needle bearing is matched with a hardened, polished inner ring (axle) that, when used with the supplied spacers, is a perfect fit between the rocker arms or frame mounts. Until your shock is riding on bearings, you will never take advantage of its true capabilites.

The breakthrough performance and popularity of our needle bearing kits has inspired some cheap knock-off kits. Only our kits include up to 4 hardened bearing steel axles of varying Outside Diameters so that you get a custom fit regardless of slight variations in your shock eyelet bore.

Shock bores typically run between 15.01mm and 15.03mm. As the needle bearing assembly gets pressed into the shock eyelet, the cup holding the rollers gets compressed, which affects the Inside Diameter of the bearing. These variations in bearing Inside Diameter require corresponding variations in axle Outside Diameter in order to have a proper fit. Too tight a fit results in binding, while too loose a fit results in excess play. With our kit, you are guaranteed a custom fit and optimum performance.

  • With all the engineering that has gone into modern day mountain bike suspension systems, it's strange that more attention has not been paid to the mounting of the actual shock. The next time you service your shock, take a moment after removing the top of the shock from the linkage to slowly rotate the shock fore and aft on the lower pivot. Note all the friction taking place. Remove the shock and extract the reducers. Not only will you find wear inside the DU bushing, but you'll likely find scoring on the outside surfaces of the shock spacers as well, indicating the hardware is rotating where it's not supposed to.
