Which aftermarket rear shock?

Great suspension, but you still need to look after them, room for improvement as well.

Which aftermarket rear shock?

Postby doc007 » 09 Aug 2011, 13:40

I read that the Nitron replacement shock pre-load adjuster is hidden in the swingarm tunnel! Is this true? Have they changed the design since the problem was noted?

Are Hagon a reasonable make? Do they have the same problem with the preload adjustment?

I'd love an Ohlins-obviously but funds will not stretch.

Why not get a zx10R shock? low cost and great item with perfect access to adjust it.

from 2005 upwards, I fitted a 2008 zx10R shock and it fitted great, weighs alot less than the original and feels a million times better all for £70. Just make sure you get a low mileage one and get the two end mounting holes drilled out 100% straight to 12mm as they are 10mm. I have put a thread up with pics on another post. A replacement is about £300 so the most you will pay is about £100 with the shock and the drilling and its not hard to fit.
