Mupo Custom

Mupo Custom - Eagle Cartridge and ST3 Shock

It has been two years since Italian suspension specialist Mupo launched its Mupo Custom program, taking its race-bred street and sport bike suspension experience and applying it to the handling and performance characteristics of heavier and less responsive Harleys.
In that time Mupo Custom has quickly established a prominent reputation for premium H-D suspension solutions.
For pre-M-8 touring models, the company is offering to "improve comfort, control and safety" with its Eagle cartridges, specifically designed to improve the feel and control of the Harley-Davidson front end. 

ST3 rear shock

A modification kit that is designed to transform the adjustment-free original forks into fully adjustable front forks, the Eagle replaces the entire original cartridge for "greater precision and better performance."
"Thanks to the compression and rebound adjustments (40 positions), finding the ideal setting for the individual's driving style is intuitive and fast. With customized settings based on the weight and riding style of each rider, Eagle cartridges give immediate advantages in terms of handling and feeling.
"The minimal, elegant design is designed with attention to the smallest detail by the Mupo Custom style center in Italy. Thanks to the wide range of Mupo springs available, dealers can custom-order the cartridge according to rider weight and riding style preferences."
Eagle cartridges are made entirely by hand and are a fully reversable install and have a 2-year warranty. This can be extended up to six years by carrying out periodic reviews and maintenance as per the use and maintenance booklet.

They are 22 mm aluminum cartridges with a 22 mm sintered piston, 12 mm steel rod, chrome-silicon steel springs and offer 40 clicks of compression and extension adjustment.
Also seen here, Mupo ST3 twin rear shock absorbers have "refined hydraulics that are specifically calibrated for Harley-Davidson applications. They are designed to increase the bike's performance and ride comfort and are ideal for Sportster, Dyna, Touring, V-Rod, Street 750 and XR1200 applications, available in various lengths from 11.5" (295 mm) to 15" (381 mm) on request.
"Thanks to the spring extension and preload adjusters with millimeter ring nuts, it is possible to adjust the shock absorbers in order to obtain the optimal setting, even in the event of additional loads. The wheelbase adjustment allows the rear axle to be raised or lowered, according to the driver's preferred driving position.
"All the components are entirely CNC-machined from high-grade, top quality materials. ST3 shocks can be customized with red or black details, according to the style of the bike.
"Floating piston technology, which separates the oil and nitrogen, means the ST3 has no lean angle limits, giving the rider a feeling of safety and control in all conditions." A wide range of spring rates are available at time of order; lengths from 11.5" (295 mm) to 15" (381 mm) available on request.
