Moreryde suspension


rdickinson

Recommended Posts

My Travel supreme needs a Moreryde suspension component replaced. The rubber block vulcanized to 2 steel plates. Mine has a 3/4" tear. The year is 2001 or 2002. I'm told there are 2 models or styles. Does anyone know which one it would be so it can be ordered?

 

Thanks

The MOR/ryde folks will be able to determine what you need. There is a number on the rubber but they can direct you right to it. That is where you have to buy them anyways.

If you are replacing the spring packs I'd replace the shocks. MorRyde will tell you which to get, but they were just generic shocks when I did mine back in 2003. I also personally replaced the rubber spring packs, when were the wrong ones from the (newmar) factory.

We are checking the shocks and the other rubber components as well.

 

Moreryde returned my call early this morning and we had the correct # for the part. They also gave me the part # for the shock as well as size extended and compressed. They said it was a generic shock.

Austin was very helpful.

 

Austin also sent me 3 PDF's with info which If the forum is interested, could be forwarded and posted if you want. I've not had an opportunity to look at them yet.

 

Part was ordered and shipped today.

As a general note, I love working with Morryde. Every time they have been as helpful and responsive as they could be. I don't have any connection, just a very satisfied customer and as my DW would be quick to tell you, I'm not easy to please.

Hi Guys,

 

Are the shocks all the same for the MorRyde suspension ?

 

Thanks,

Hi Guys,

 

Are the shocks all the same for the MorRyde suspension ?

 

Thanks,

Al

I don't think so, the printed info is not for my age of trailer, I'm thinking it is for a newer model but don't know which year. The printed info was all the Moreryde rep knew about. Mine were longer. The make and model can be provided if you want. My trailer was an '02.

 

 

The Moreryde printed info is way out of date. The # 11 stamped or embossed on the blocks for mine is correct. A # 13 is for the 8000 lb blocks. The shock part # was not right, they shipped the wrong shocks. We had to get permission as well as a Fed Ex # to ship them back and got the shocks from Lordco out of Vancouver. Again Moreryde's info is out of date on that as well.

As I am living in the unit they had to put the wheels back on and remove them the next day to install the shocks. When grilled the kid at Moreryde said "sorry, those are the only ones I know about"..Really, there isn't a red flag somewhere saying an '02 has a longer shock?

I wound up eating the xtra labor to pull 6 wheels, install shocks and replace the wheels.

 

The rubber blocks were a few days late according to the repair facility so that bumped me back another week.

 

All the shocks were toast, good thing we checked.

 

Anyway the project is completed.

On older Mor/ryde IS suspensions it is typical - at least in my experience - that the shocks are bad. Which if you think about it, does make some sense. So be sure to check the shocks if doing service work.

Like I said earlier, it's like changing the oil and not the filter. If one is gone, chances are rest won't be far behind. Same as headlight bulbs, change one, change em both.

Anyway, if anyone is doing their IS measure the shock open and compressed and provide that to Moreryde or get shocks from a supplier on your own.

Mine is an '02. Monday I will call shop for specs and post them.

Spendy repair but glad they were checked.

 

While here, thought I'd post these.

I've been looking at our IS suspension and a couple of the rubber blocks are getting to the wear and tear limit. I was thinking about building up the stock of swear words and doing the wet bolt kit at the same time...

"Are we there yet?" asked no motorcycle rider, ever.

If you need a wet bolt kit then you don't have the Morryde IS

 

I'm not near the trailer at the moment and I should not have used an un-researched and verified model name :lol: . We have springs with the MorRyde rubber equalizers connecting them... There are shackle bolts present...

That is a Mor/Ryde RE system. I call it the "Reduced Efficiency" model.

There is a new version of the MORryde RE that provides for more spring travel with leaf springs. Still not as good as IS, independent, but better than plain RE.

I did not know there was a newer version of it. However, relative to the IS it truly is reduced efficiency....which was my point. Some people reading this may think all Mor/Ryde is the same, when that is not the case. You really have to investigate what someone is talking about if you are ordering "Mor/Ryde" on a trailer.
