Before you make that decision look on the top part a little closer! That looks to be a hex screw. Now as for the bottom look on the other side to see if it may have the same hex looking screw.

yes I have bought the suspension : http://i54.tinypic.com/2rfg48z.jpg

but I cannot put it on my mtb frame becouse on my frame (look picture http://i45.tinypic.com/2eobc6g.jpg down where the screw goes in suspesion) It should be hollow where the suspension goes as on other mtb frames, and by me Is hollow suspension on my frame , so I cann't put it Sad(

do you know are ther such suspensions Smile

thanx for respond

Have you tried to find any numbers or manufacturing data on the shock itself? Another idea maybe someone can help me out on this is to measure the shock and get a replacement with a different brand. I tried to google this bike and did not have much luck other then the fact that you have XTR groupset from Shimano.

Thank you for reply,i asked to BMW about shock's brand and they told me that it's a "Paioli" 150 mm. This manufacturer can not reply to me about because they are closed since 2006...
The fact is that i cant find the original part but i cant sent it to a specialist in order to repair it(dont know someone).In this point i would ask you to help me out because it concerns something very special like subject...And another problem is that i m in Greece and i cant trust greek specialist to rebuild this shock...

Ok now we have something to work with my friend. If you do some online shopping you can enter 150mm suspension shock in the search box. There should be something compatibility to replace it.

Is there a way to rebuild or repair this shock?

There are MTB suspension servicing specialists, for example: http://shockspital.com/, however given that the shock and probably servicing parts are no longer available they may not be able to help. In which case you may have to replace it with one a similar length.

I had a quick look and found a couple that are 152mm in length, the extra 2mm shouldn't effect things too much, quite pricey though: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=87559
