K-Tech RCU DDS Lite Rear Shock Yamaha R1 / R1S

Incorporating many of the same components found on the DDS Pro shock (minus the ByPass Valve Adjuster) The K-Tech Lite Rear Shock is the entry level track and race shock in the K-Tech RCU DDS line. The K-Tech Lite features four independently adjustable settings, allowing riders to fine tune their suspension settings.

Like all K-Tech products, DDS Lite Shocks are designed and manufactured in the UK using the latest design software and highest grade materials. To ensure the DDS Lite shock can stand up the elements and demands of racing, it is fully hard anodized both inside and out. This not only fights corrosion but also aids in the smooth operation of all shock components. K-Tech DDS Lite Shocks are charged with pressurized nitrogen gas. Nitrogen has proven to be an industry standard because of its stability and consistent performance, regardless of outside atmospheric conditions. The DDS system uses a smaller piston rod which keeps the system more stable over a wider temperature range due to its small displacement.

The K-Tech RCU DDS Lite Rear Shocks are available in multiple weight options to best match your riding needs. Your total weight must include your combined rider weight with all gear.


  • 4-way adjustable:
    • 32 clicks of compression adjustment
    • 32 clicks of rebound adjustment
    • Manual spring preload adjustment
    • Length adjustment
  • Pressurized nitrogen gas
  • 35mm piston
  • Precision CNC-machined components
  • Fully anodized inside and out
  • Highly polished low-friction piston rod
  • Low-friction eyelets
  • Remote adjustable (applicable models)
  • Proven at the highest levels of racing including British Superbike SBK and Isle of Man TT

Note: To ensure you receive the K-Tech Shock sprung for your specific needs, please select the weight option that includes your expected combined rider, gear and/or luggage weight. Images for reference only. Actual K-Tech Shock will vary slightly depending on your motorcycle's make and model.
