In January 2007 we launched our new GP7 Monoshock. Like all Maxton products the GP7 rear shock has been designed, developed and manufactured "in house" by our team of engineers and technicians.

Low adjuster The shocks are CNC machined from a heat-treated aircraft specification alloy, then anodised to prevent wear. All the shocks are individually built to order, so we valve and spring the shocks to suit each rider weight and what he or she is using the bike for. The unit is primarily aimed at race bikes, but can also be built to suit road or track day bikes. The unit has the same technology used to win the British Superbike Privateer Cup in 2006.

Medium adjuster The GP7 monoshock is adjustable for Rebound damping, High, Medium and Low Speed Compression damping, Ride height adjustment (where possible) and Preload adjustment. The unit can also be supplied with a Hydraulic Preload Adjuster depending on the model of bike. The Medium and Low speed compression damping adjusters have been designed so they can be adjusted using you fingers, or by using a slotted screwdriver. The units have been designed with such a large range of damping adjustment, that there is no need to revalve the shock at race meetings. The range of damping adjustment is also very fine, to obtain the optimum setting for the rider. The design of the internal damping valves means that changing the range of adjustment and damping curve, can be done in a few minutes. All of the above makes the damper easier to work on and more convenient.

Adjuster ring When we assemble the GP7 Monoshock we can choose between a 14mm or 16mm diameter piston rod, This will help to improve the set up of the suspension to suit the rider and application.

Bottom fitting Like an engine a shock absorber needs to allow the fluid inside to circulate or flow easily through the relevant galleries. The oil inside the GP7 damper flows unrestricted through the internal galleries, improving the action of the shock absorber and increasing the performance of the damping. The end result of this improvement is increased feel at the rear of the bike, especially under power.

The design of the GP7’s piggyback remote reservoir means the position of the reservoir can be moved (if required) to suit each individual installation.
