Take me home, El Capitan!

Pirates' Lair is proud to offer the complete line of German made Wilbers Suspension Products for the early model non-ESA BMW K1600GT & K1600GTL. If your factory non-ESA shocks have 30K+ on them, they are as useless as tits on a boar. Replace them NOW. As are all the Wilbers Shocks.. these are fully rebuildable and come with a full 5 year warranty, and two (2) year service intervals. The service is done in the US. All shocks listed below are non-ESA replacements for the few non-ESA equipped K1600's that were produced in 2011-2012. Each shock (except for the Eco version) comes with a rebound adjustment of 22 clicks, a wider range then any other product on the market.

Upon receipt of your order, I will forward the info to the US distributor WILBERS USA, then the factory in Germany will build your shock specifically for you, your riding style, and your bike. Expect 3-4 weeks from the day the order goes in to delivery to your door. Your shocks will be drop shipped directly to your door, by-passing me.

If you have a another bike that you need shocks for.. let me know and I'll do the research on it. We'd just need to know the make, model, and year.

Note: FYI.. You can NOT put non-ESA shocks on an ESA equipped bike. The shocks listed on this page are for non-ESA bikes only.


When you place your order, I will need the following info:

1. Rider weight with full gear
2. Passenger weight (if any), and how often in % of riding time
3. Other than oem luggage weight (if any) and how often in % of riding time.
4. Ride height: Standard or lowered (1/2", 1", 1.5")
5. Ride style: Commuting, Sport-touring, Touring
6. Spring color: Blueline or Blackline is standard. "Nightline" (all black components) can be ordered at around 10% above posted price. Email me for exact quotes

7. Year and model of bike.

Aftermarket shocks are the # 1 way to make your bike better.. smoother.. and faster... Trust me..

WILBERS BMW K1600GT & GTL FRONT ADJUSTLINE SHOCK 640-1054 Front

The basic edition of the Wilbers Adjustline mono shock absorber comes with the same technology as the more complex versions. The 640 model shocks are simple bolt-on non-ESA replacements for non-ESA shocks. This front shock is spring preload and rebound damping adjustable. Nonetheless this shock absorber does not make any compromises concerning response behavior or durability. The radial piston, wet run, teflon guided self-aligning bearings and other features redefine the quality of a standard shock. Like usual the spring preload can be continuously tuned and the rebound can be set over an open-bleed system in 22 clicks. The shock absorber can be retrofitted with many other Wilbers accessories. Three spring color options are available. Black or Blue are standard, and Nightline (at around 10% over posted price.)

The shock, unless otherwise requested, will be ordered for standard seat height. The seat height (in in a combo) can be lowered by ½”, 1” or 1.25” upon request at no additional cost.

These fit the 2011-2012 non-ESA equipped BMW K1600GTL and K1600GT only.

WILBERS BMW K1600GT & GTL REAR ADJUSTLINE SHOCK 640-1053 Rear

The 640 rear shock comes standard with spring preload adjustability (via an included spanner tool) and rebound damping adjustability via the twist knob at the bottom of the shock. Or.. you can opt for the 629 upgrade option of a "hydraulic" spring pre-load adjuster for easier, tool-less adjustments. This shock absorber does not make any compromises concerning response behavior or durability. The radial piston, wet run, teflon guided self-aligning bearings and other features redefine the quality of a standard shock. Like usual the spring preload can be continuously tuned and the rebound can be set over an open-bleed system in 22 clicks. The shock absorber can be retrofitted with many other Wilbers accessories.

WILBERS BMW K1600GT & GTL REAR COMPETITION SHOCK 642-1053 Rear

The nonplus ultra concerning motorcycle shock absorbers! The upper mount of the 642 Competition rear shock consists of a milled part. It serves as a connection to the compression tank and houses the setup screws for the high- and low-speed areas of compression adjustment. The 642 rear shock is a simple bolt-on non-ESA replacement for your non-ESA shocks. With 22 clicks each they can be optimally tuned to your requirements! At maximum compression speed a pressure relief valve prevents the shock from hydraulic blocking and fends off uncontrolled jolts to the suspension. Rebound can be adjusted from the outside by 22 clicks. The spring basis is steplessly variable. And for those who want to be all they can be, you can opt for the 629 upgrade option of a "hydraulic" spring pre-load adjuster for easier, tool-less adjustments. Three spring color options are available. Black or Blue are standard, and Nightline (at around 10% over posted price.)

The shock, unless otherwise requested, will be ordered for standard seat height. The seat height (in in a combo) can be lowered by ½”, 1” or 1.25” upon request at no additional cost.
