Motorcycle Glossary Dictionary Term - Paralever

Paralever: Paralever is the name of a radically different rear suspension system first used on the BMW R100GS motorcycle. The Paralever works on the principle of a parallelogram with a torque arm that allows the shaft drive to move through two angles, giving about 70 percent more rear-suspension travel. There is considerable discussion as to just how this suspension works, but it apparently does and has been used in many other BMW models.
