Hyperpro Shock

Had a nice little present from the postie today.

Installation was pretty straight forward. No need to drop the exhaust. If you have an Abba stand or similar you can lift the swing arm enough to make room for the shock.
Feed the external reservoir up through first with the wheel lowered a bit so you can reach down and grab it, hang the reservoir out to the side and lift the wheel all the way up to make feeding the shock up easier and you are away.
Haven't had much time to play with it yet but initial ride feels pretty promising. It's firm but compliant. No need to compromise your preload to make up for the lack of compression adjustment like on the standard Shock.
Well pleased for the moment.

I haven't had time to change the front springs yet and I'm working away all next week so that will have to wait for a bit

Is it the streetbox? I got the feedback that the shock comes with bundle is very similar to the stock one.

Lovely! I'm wondering your Hyperpro shock is the same as this one? (link below)

I just done a quick measurement and the centres are 331mm as close as I can tell. I don't have a very accurate measuring stick but I should be within a mm

No, It's not the streetbox one. The streetbox only comes with a spring for weight and only rebound adjustment. It has a valve built in which automatically adjusts the compression flow depending on where you set the rebound.
Mine has an external reservoir which I can adjust rebound and compression independently

No, this is the streetbox shock i spoke about to Vnuh up above.
It's probably still better than stock as you would have a spring set to your weight.
A small point of interest. When I was speaking to Hyperpro they said they have a different internals (valving system) if you weigh over 200Kg. They also charge an extra £200 quid to accommodate they extra weight

Thank you for your information Beaker! It seems to me that the Hyperpro Streetbox shock is similar to the Nitron R1 shock, which has the valve built in for simpler adjustment.
Based from a few initial feedback in the forum, the Nitron R1 doesn't make a massive different from the stock shock, which is a shame because it cost quite a lot.
I'm really looking forward to your feedback once you try this out.

Springs are in
Still haven't had time for a proper shakedown yet and as the weather is dropping off I probably won't get a chance to really push it and give it a good hard test this year.
Either way, as long as the salts not down I'm quite happy to put on an extra layer and go out and play
First test ride was on the way to work this morning. I'm only on the base settings at the mo but it already feels pretty good. The front springs are a good match to the shocker and the bike feels very poised whereas when just the shock was in the front was diving all over the place.
I think I've made a good start

Hi Caynam,
I see on the Ebay site that one has a spec as "Sport Emulsion Rear Shock Absorber".
For the money asked, I would like better than "Emulsion".
Your present Suzi GSXS one is an Emulsion type, which is the cheapest design made.
The nitrogen gas and the oil are not separate, hence they get very quickly intermixed to a gassy oil, and have variable response to tuning adjustments.

Rob.
