Shock absorbers are important part of vehicle`s suspension, which is fabricated to reduce shock impulse. Shock absorbers work on the principle of fluid displacement on both the compression and expansion cycle. The modern motorcycle uses suspension to accomplish several things; it provides a smooth comfortable ride absorbing bumps and imperfections in the road. It also allows the rider to fine tune the machine to give him/her better control over the machine when riding. Motorcycles with only one shock absorber are called mono shock motorcycles. When mono suspension is mentioned everyone should remember that it should be on the rear side. The performance of mono suspension motorcycles is vastly superior to twin suspension motorcycles. They are used not only in automotive industries but are also used in various other manufacturing and processing industries.
