Cogent Dynamics KLR650 “Moab” Shock


KLR650 ’87 to current

Kawasaki KLR650 suspension upgrades –


The Moab shock from Cogent Dynamics is the standard by which other shocks are judged in the KLR world.

With its superior performance and exceptional reliability the Moab has literally conquered the world many times.

Rick at Cogent hand builds these beauties from parts made by himself, he is as passionate about motorcycles as you are.

Spring duties are handled by a custom Eibach Racing spring available in either Standard or Heavy-Duty weights.

The Standard 8.15kg/mm spring will be fine if you are under aprox 100 kg and don’t ride with large amounts of luggage or passengers often.

If you regularly carry large luggage boxes and/or a passenger and weigh over 100kg, you may prefer the Heavy-Duty 9.17kg/mm spring.

Comes standard with the CNC machined Bling Ring Preload Adjuster Collar and Preload Bearing that will make preload adjustments easy. Or add the Hydraulic Preload Adjuster to make it the easiest of all. All you do is twist the knob. Includes mounting bracket for knob unit. Choosing the Hydraulic Preload Adjuster adds an additional $399 to the cost. These need to be fitted at time of shock build so shocks with a pre load adjuster are via order only, email for more information.

Note – if selecting the additional remote pre load adjuster the standard mounting position is an issue if you are using a large Safari fuel tank ( see image )


For a true comfort and performance package, we highly recommend upgrading your front suspension at the same time. Check out the Cogent DDC Kit for your forks.


NOTE – if you have a new Gen III it will require the use of a pre load adjuster, email us if you have an interest in ordering a shock for 2022 onwards gen III KLR

NOTE – If you have ’87-’07 KLR, you MUST order new mounting bolt @$15. Not required for 2008-up models. Email re the bolt.

NOTE – If you have an interest in the Moab Pro Series Ultimate a $2500 plus shock please email us on those as they are a pre order only.

NOTE – if you think you need a even heavier spring or have a specific request email us, we have custom builds readily in the build queue.

NOTE – re photo of black KLR Moab Shock ( shock springs can vary in colour usually yellow but occasional red, email if this is an issue  ) please note some genetic images are used.
