    To our bros and pros in this forum, I have a few questions and need some opinions. I recently installed on my Sniper R-Edition (classic) a RB Monoshock S-Line LC135. It's fully adjustable. But i was surprised when the shipment arrived and i opened the box, no tool or manual/instructions are included. Just stickers and two pcs of Racing Boy baller bands. I have attached the picture of the monoshock below.

    Questions:
    1. Where can i buy the tool for the preload adjuster ring?
    2. You can see there are two adjuster/control knobs. Top and bottom of the shocks. I think the knob below is for the rebound adjustment. What about the one on top? Is that for compression adjustment?
    3. Has anyone among you have this unit installed on your mc? What settings did you use?

    Yeah bro. I'm learning to tune it myself. To my own preferrence. Had to look for a tool to turn the lock rings to adjust spring preload. For the compression and dumper, there are knobs too to adjust them and set em' up to your own liking.
    So far so good. No complains. Thanks for asking, bro.

    Hey, I am planing to buy a RacingBoy Mono shock too, my question is how well does it perform compared to the stock absorber? I want more damp/softer feeling when it comes to absrobers since where I come from, we have a lot of potholes.

    What RB Monoshock model are you planning to get? If we are talking about the S-Line model, like what I have installed on my mc, i'm quite happy and satisfied with its performance. Since it is fully adjustable, you can tweak the settings to your riding preference. Compression/damping and rebound. You will be able turn tight or loosen the compression ring and also set the rebound setting to Slow, Medium, Fast.
    But let me remind you that if you buy the RB Monoshock, there is no ring adjustment tool included in the package. That is what's frustrating. I had to find and buy one myself in some other mc shop. Other than this, it's a good product.

    Yes I am planing to buy the S-Line, Adjuster tool is not an issue. I want to know if it is better than the stock asorber in terms of performance (Excluding the adjustable features). the S-Line series are Nirogen Gas Shocks right?

    It is definitely better than the stock monoshock. After four and a half years, my stock shock is still stiff. Maybe because i never allow back-riders. And I never liked the stiff & bouncy feeling of the stock suspension. Of course! It performs much better than OEM. Lighter in weight too.

    SUSPENSION TYPE

    • BIG DAMPER PISTON DIAMETER 38MM
    • PISTON ROD DIAMETER 12MM
    • HIGH PRESSURE NITROGEN GAS TYPE
    • ALLOY ADJUSTER RING NUT


    ADJUSTMENT FEATURES

    • ADJUSTABLE SPRING PRELOAD MAX 7MM
    • ADJUSTABLE REBOUND DAMPING

    Looks like I will go for the S-Line, thanks a lot for the information, it has been very helpful for me to choose between this and the stock absorber

    1. If you cannot find the tools. Just use grip pliers and cloth. I been using that method because RB not include the tools. YSS did include the tools but YSS absorber died on me after 6 months of use. Im using the oil type of YSS absober. The oil seal broke and rubber at absorber holder also broke. Need to send to factory or online seller to repair it and I didn't send it because not worth the hassle. Not only me, my friend also face this problem years back. Maybe the gas type solve the problem.
    2. Yes knob below is for rebound adjuster. Top knob for refill the gas/oil. If you are using gas type and if ever try to open it, open it slowly. It will emit gas and will be a problem to refill it again other than sending to factory to refill back. I have been there. Hahaha. If oil you can refill it by your own.
    3. I use the oil type RB absorber that didn't have rebound adjuster. I adjust the preload adjuster to minimum to make it softer ride.
