Porsche Votec GS97 bike shock diagram

This rough diagram shows the inner workings of the Votec GS97 bike forks used on the late 1990s Porsche Bike S and Bike FS. The elastomer posts (1) connect to a metal rod (2) and the entire assembly (3) fits into the fork tube and lower frame. 

The elastomers, spacers and grease can be purchased from www.suspensionforkparts.net

This diagram can help to stack the elastomers, spacers and spring properly on the elastomer post.

  12. Hi there. Love your site. Ive had a 1998 Porsche FS for 12 years. Its rarely used and in original condition but I believe the shocks need rebuilding due to age. Im based in New Zealand so they are rare here. Could you send a copy of the manual in english to me please msaville@orbconsulting.co.nz very much appreciated...
