    Rear Shock

    My 2014 MT09 feels like a 1970's bike when on bumpy B roads around Sussex I know there has been a lot said on the forum about the poor quality rear shock but can I ask the owners who have change the shock for a Nitron is there a big difference? I have tried to adjust the pre-load and re-bound but the standard shock feels like a po-go stick doesn't fill me with confidence it fact my 2003 Yamaha XT600 handles better over the same road and it is fitted with knobbly off road trail tyres. Welcome your comments on the Nitron NTR1.

    Meant to be very good from all the reading I have done on shocks. If I was after a shock that didn't have independent rebound/compression adjustment it would be what I would go for.

    I've got a Nitron R2, it totally transformed the handling and ride.
