    Nitron shock

    Had a new Nitron shock delivered yesterday. Built to my spec and delivered within 10 days, I think that's pretty good service. Looks classy and really well made. Can't wait to get it on the bike.

    I got one built for me on my Bmw, it's a cracking bit of kit and nice to have so much adjustability and they look absolutely fantastic when installed, so much prettier than the stock shock ;-)

    Nitron are very highly rated in the FJR world. Nice bit of kit.

     :455: Shock now fitted and couldn't be more pleased. I had an Ohlins shock fitted to my varadero and this feels just as good. Highly reccomended. :152:

    Which model Nitron did you go for?

    On past road bikes I had Ohlins I could independently adjust High/Low Speed compression and High/Low Speed dampening.  But unless I was on the track I just left it on the same settings all the time.

    But with the dual on and off road nature of the CT  I think it may be advantageous to be able to have all the FARKLE adjustments.
