Awesome Tonyt, Curious to know how easy you find it to fit and of course, how it rides.

Ordered mine 7 days ago from Nitron UK site, no info on delivery on site or received since.
Not good customer relations!
Wondering how long yours took and where ordered from?

I rang them, they said 2 weeks minimum delivery as they are hand built to order. Mind you they have run out if the owners/instruction manual.. sent a note saying to go on line and print one yourself.. I've emailed them that this is totally unacceptable.. now they are going to send me one when they come in... You will find the shock really is a quality well made bit of kit..

Thanks for that, wish I hadn't been so hasty to strip bike down now.https://drive.google.com/open?id=1bU...hbQZdgX88pn2dQ

It's a fairly easy job if you have an Abba stand - back wheel out - prop up swingarm and access is available , helps if you take the hugger off.

Got fed up with waiting and threw it all together again yesterday cos the sun was shining and I hadn't ridden it for a month or so.
One little niggle is having to remove the rear brake fluid container to get the shock top bolt out. The little container bolt is awkward to get at and I removed the top of the rear fairing - time consuming - I will try to avoid doing that next time.
