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 $549 to the cost. These need to be fitted at time of shock build so shocks with a Hydraulic Preload Adjuster are via order only, simply purchase via the option, shock builds and freight logistics out of the US are approx eight to ten weeks. Email if you require more information.

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 under this same category ‘suspension’

NOTE – if you have a new 2022 and onwards Gen III it will require the use of a Hydraulic Preload Adjuster. The Gen I and Gen II take one version of remote preload adjuster the Gen III another. There is an interference issue with the adjuster mount position on the Gen III if the rider has Happy Trails, T Rex or similar crash bars. Simply purchase via the option, again if you have any queries email us.

NOTE – while we choose to try and keep Moab shocks in stock if a shock is out of stock email us we have custom builds happening all the time. Shocks with a Preload Adjuster are a pre order pre purchase via the option only. If a custom build with Pre Load Adjuster or similar we require information with your order, year of bike, your own riding weight and style/level of riding etc

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 )

NOTEIf you have ’87-’07 KLR, you MUST order new mounting bolt @$34.95. Not required for 2008-up models. Email us re the bolt.

NOTE – If you have an interest in the Moab Pro Series Ultimate a $2600 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 due to supply chain issues, usually yellow but occasional red, email if this is an issue  ) please note some genetic images are used.

Hi folks, Rick here with an important note about all our shocks.  As a specialty manufacturer of custom shocks made to the highest standard, we use coil springs from a variety of high quality sources and for that reason we have always supplied springs of different colors depending on your riding needs and what is available to us in a particular circumstance.  In the case of our “Mojave” shock for the Suzuki DR650 we have been limited to a narrow selection of spring rates based on availability of springs which suit the relatively long travel of the Mojave and Mojave Pro Series shocks.  I have personally been developing additional options by engineering slight modifications to our shock and by working with spring manufacturers to allow for an even more suitable, high performance spring to suit your riding needs.  Many of the photographs on this website show yellow or red springs but the photos do not represent the full variety of colors which we have traditionally used.  Some of our springs have been a dark “Cogent” blue, dark gray or a black color.  Please be aware that the wide variety of rates and sizes we offer doesn’t allow us to specify a standard color.  We are picking our springs based on the best quality and suitability to your performance needs.

The Mojave Pro Series Shock with the hydraulic preload option spring on my bike is red and is what best suited my 200lb weight and riding style. I do my best to get out there to test this equipment to make sure we keep providing you, our customers with the best possible products.

Thank you for all your support, it means so much to me and the rest of the Cogent Dynamics team !
