Nitron shock
on: April 04, 2015, 06:50:39 AM

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.
