    Great looking bike - similar to my old T100.
    Definitely not standard shocks - saves you changing them!

    Even the mirrors have been upgraded. Previous owner loved that bike.

    The rear shocks look like progressive ones as the coils get tighter to the top and definitely a Thruccy seat which I find pretty comfortable against the standard bonny ones to be honest lovely looking bike you have there

    Look like TEC shocks, similar to what I have on my T100.

    A question for you if I may: I have the standard shocks on my Scrambler, which is now 13 years old and I have owned it from new. I have been very happy with the bike throughout, the only time the rear suspension has been found wanting has been on a recent trip to N Yorkshire where it was unable to keep up with events on the rough moors roads. Would a set of TEC rear shocks improve the bike in this respect?

    I have the most basic Tec shocks on my T100. They were a worthwhile improvement over the standard items with rather better damping.

    Thank you - that is really helpful. I am also considering the most basic shocks from TEC; at just under £100/pair they seem very good value (these ones):

    It is really useful to know they would lead to a worthwhile improvement.

    Isn’t there a thread on TEC shocks snapping?

    Some of the older TEC rear shocks (the ones with the separate gas canister) were very leaky, quite a few of us (myself included) had some trouble with them. I ended up throwing mine to the rubbish.

    These seem a different model altogether (if indeed they are TEC), so I'd rather not pass comment on them.
