Shock Absorbers

Shock Absorbers

Shock absorbers are important component which determines overall character of the vehicle by not only improving the driving / riding confort but also controls vehicle posture and driving stability.

Steering Systems

Steering Systems

If the system conveys the steering operation of the driver unerringly to the car itself further, it also serves as a man / machine interface that interprets information about the driving conditions from the car to the driver, The system is considered to be one of the most important parts of a car with regard to its performance and reliability.

Differential Gears

Differential Gears

The differential gear makes smooth cornering possible by absorbing the rotation differentials that occur between the left and right wheels when changing course or cornering in the rotational drive axis.

Propeller Shafts

Propeller Shafts

When the engine and the drive axle are separated as in the case of 4-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive vehicles, the propeller shaft conveys the driving power generated by the engine.

Gas Springs

Gas Springs

also known an window stays / open stays, this compornents are used to support the weight of doors. tailgate or hoods of the vehicle while they are open by using the resistance of compressed gas. This spring assists the opening and closing as well as helping to maintain the condition of the parts in the parts that open on 4-wheel drive vehicles such as the bonnet and the tailgate.

CVT Pumps

CVT Pumps

used in CVT (continuously variable transmission), this hydraulic pump supplies oil pressure to the pulleys for its smooth. This pump serves to bear the load smoothly on the variable ratio of the pulleys by supplying oil pressure in a CVT (continuously variable transmission) which can change speeds steplessly.


Motorcycle Products

Front Forks

Front Forks

The front fork is a key component maintaining the front wheel, as well as steering functions.

Rear Cushions

Rear Cushions

The rear cushion is an important part responsible for easing the impact from the surface of the road, and appropriately absorbing shocks in the riding environment.

Drivetrain Systems

Drivetrain Systems

The drive train transfers the driving power generated in the engine to the tire through side gear (bevel gear), drive shaft, and the final gear (bevel gear) through the tire.


Outboard Products

Power Tilt and Trim

Power Tilt and Trim

This hydraulic component functions to maintain the angle of the screw when the boat is underway, assuring efficient propulsion, and when at anchor, protects the outboard motor and boat frame
