The ELKA Stage 4 ATV Front & Rear shocks for the HONDA FOREMAN 400, 1998-2003 are a more affordable version of the top-end ELKA Stage 5 shocks, with which it shares most of the same components. The only difference is it is not adjustable in high-speed compression damping but rather features a unique factory-set internal high-speed compression blow-off circuit to relieve peak pressure upon impacts to achieve similar performance with factory-set damping resistance. Highly improve the handling characteristics of your HONDA FOREMAN 400, 1998-2003 with the ELKA Stage 4 custom built shocks!.If you require faster shipment, have any kind of questions, or wish to inquire about other international shipping options, please contact us!
Race-level performance and maximum comfort
Wide range of highly effective adjustments
Ultra-lightweight design, all components are optimized for weight savings
High-flow hydraulic circuits and regulations with equivalent flow capacity upon compression and rebound stroke (1:1 ratio)
External reservoir to help prevent fading (piggyback on most vehicle models, remote reservoir on others)
Rider-specific spring setup optimized for customer's intended use
ELKA Shocks custom built for your HONDA FOREMAN 400, 1998-2003:
Custom setup includes: Make/Model/Year, Rider/Passenger Weight, Type of Riding (Recreational Trails/Comfort, Sport/Performance, Racing/High-Performance, Work/Hunting/Heavy Loads or XC Racing), A-Arms/Swingarm Setup and Tires. Basically each ELKA Shock is individually designed for your exact application, build time is just 15 days. Once we receive your order we will contact you to gather all required information for the Setup!
Threaded Spring Preload: Lets the rider fine-tune the initial force applied on the springs and precisely balance the weight distribution across the front and rear wheels while setting up the ride height (ground or chassis clearance) and to lower or raise the vehicle to adapt to various situations or to suit your personal preference. Turn the preload adjustment ring clockwise (from top of the shock) to increase preload and raise the vehicle or turn counter-clockwise to reduce preload and lower the vehicle.
Low-Speed Compression: Allows fine-tuning of the damping resistance when the shock is being compressed slowly. This adjustment controls body roll when cornering, rear-end squatting under hard acceleration, front-end diving when braking, riding over whoops at moderate speed, undulations and elevation changes in the terrain. Turn the red knob clockwise to increase damping resistance, therefore making the suspension stiffer or turn counter-clockwise to reduce damping resistance, therefore making the suspension softer.
Rebound: Controls the speed at which the shock absorber returns to its fully extended position after being compressed from an impact, keeping the wheels on the ground for maximum traction and reducing the bucking effect caused by the spring pressure pushing back after an impact. Turn the adjuster clockwise to slow down the rebound or turn counter-clockwise to speed up the rebound.
36mm inside diameter hard anodized aluminum body with integrated PTFE coating mated to low-friction internal components
Sturdy 16mm induction hardened shafts
Multi-seal, low-friction seal head design that prevents debris and water infiltration, therefore extending the shock life in harsh conditions
Proprietary oil blend with ultra-low friction light viscosity grade which is ultra-resistant to high operating temperatures
High-pressure nitrogen valve core design rated at over 800 psi to prevent nitrogen leaks from peak pressure generated upon major hits.
