Can-Am Spyder F3T / F3 Limited Aftermarket Rear Shock / Coilover by Elka Suspension
Have you noticed that your Spyder FT / F3 Limited rear shock can bottom out when riding with a passenger? That's because the suspension is not "one size fits all", just like we all prefer a different mattress for our body style, shape, and sleeping habits... suspension should also be catered to the individual. Do you ride alone or with a passenger? Do you prefer to tour, ride the canyons, or both? How much do you weigh? These are all questions that should be asked when purchasing suspension so that the suspension can be tailor-made just for you and your Spyder. Elka Suspension does ask these questions and offers several rear shock solutions to choose from. Below you can read more about the differences between each stage of suspension and what adjustments are included with each.

What rear suspension stage should I get for my Spyder F3T / F3 Limited?

  • Stage 2 shocks are the best investment you can make for your Spyder "dollar for dollar". Our Stage 2 shocks come custom-tuned for your Spyder F3 model, calibrated for your personal riding style with springs adapted to your rider weight, taking all the guesswork out and allowing you to focus on your ride. Don’t be fooled by Stage 2’s apparent simplicity, these value-packed shocks are some of the best upgrade or replacement shocks you can buy for your Spyder. Treat yourself with a set and start eating miles in style and comfort.
  • Stage 4 shocks offer the performance of our latest technology in a package that is more accessible and easier to use. They are ideal for enthusiasts who are looking for high-performance shocks with great adjustability of key parameters.
  • Stage 5 shocks are our top-end model featuring High-Flow technology, ultra-lightweight design, and low-friction internal components. They are ideal for racers and enthusiasts who are looking for maximum performance and total control over all suspension parameters without compromise.
  • Optional +HYD is available on each shock series and stands for "hydraulic preload adjuster". If you opt for the +HYD series your shock will come equipped with an adjustment for the spring preload without the need for disassembly or manual adjustment with tools like spanner wrenches.

All our shock absorbers come standard with a threaded preload adjustment that allows you to fine-tune the initial force applied on the springs and precisely balance the weight distribution across the front and rear sections of the vehicle. This adjustment is required to set up the ride height (ground or chassis clearance) and to lower or raise the vehicle, allowing you to adapt to various situations or to suit your personal preferences.

You can easily adjust the preload by turning the ring located on top of the springs using the provided tool. A locking set-screw (3 mm Allen key provided) tightly secures the ring to prevent it from coming out of adjustment when riding. Although the preload adjustment procedure is easier to achieve when the vehicle is lifted on a stand, it can also be done on the trail.
The rebound adjustment controls the speed at which the shock absorbers return to their fully extended position after being compressed from an impact. Although the rebound valving is customized for your riding type, sometimes you might need to further adjust the rebound.

Since not all riding conditions are the same, the rider will want to adapt the rebound damping to match them. By adjusting the rebound properly, the track or skis can stay on the ground as much as possible to get maximum traction and reduce the bucking effect of the spring pressure pushing back after an impact. Elka Suspension uses a compact adjuster that can be set with a flat screwdriver, which has detented clicks.
The High-Flow single low-speed compression adjustment controls low-speed compression damping. This technology allows the rider to fine-tune the firmness of the suspension to make it harder or softer depending on the rider’s needs according to terrain conditions or for different types of riding.

The easy-to-use red twisting knob will make the suspension harder when turned clockwise and will make the suspension softer when turned counter-clockwise.

This type of regulator also features a factory-set, internal blow-off valve to relieve peak pressure generated upon harsh impacts which provides a smooth absorption of square-edged impacts and big hits.

Elka Suspension’s High- & Low-Speed Compression adjustment is an internal cartridge with two distinct circuits that control the hydraulic resistance for both high-velocity and low-velocity oil displacement. This enables very advanced fine-tuning for different types of impacts that would otherwise require the rider to make a compromise between a more comfortable softer suspension and a high-performance harder suspension.

With this dual adjustment, the rider can have the suspension set to react differently for high-speed situations and low-speed situations at the same time. Learning and understanding how to dial in the dual compression adjustment might require a little time and effort, but it will reward the rider with a suspension that works wonders over any kind of terrain and obstacles.

With the dual compression adjustment, the rider can fine-tune the shock absorbers to react differently for riding situations that would otherwise require a compromise to be made between opposed optimal settings. These adjustments are for riders who demand the highest performance and adjustability.
