    Do any of you good folks here know of alternative rear suspension options for the 2018 Gen3 version of the 800XCA?
    The damping adjuster screw on my stock WP unit has failed.
    Or perhaps know of a good second hand one floating around?
    So far my internet searches have yielded slim to no pickings for 2018 Gen3 bikes.
    So I thought if anyone here knows of a good aftermarket alternative now would be the time I suppose to see whatís available.
    Otherwise itís getting a new one from Triumph.

    Did you have any luck with finding a suitable replacement? I also have a gen3 and am looking to uprate the rear spring?

    Hi Squidge, no sadly :003: Since I couldn't get mine repaired, I just went with getting another Triumph one in the end.
    There seemed to be lots of rear shock replacement options for 2016/17 Tigers, just not for the 2018 bikes.
    But if you are just looking to replace the spring, Hyperpro do a progressive spring for the Tiger 800 XR at around 90Ä.
    But I have no first hand knowledge of how big an improvement it would make to the shock :027:
