new shock time which one?

yss £290 or £460 with remote preload adjuster

nitron r1 £438
hyperpro £398.
so which should i go far ive had a yss on my z1000sx bulit to my specs and it was good.

just cant make my mind up. not into track riding but like fast road riding. i find the standard shock on bumpy roads turns the bike into a bucking bronco

Can't compare to any others, but I've been very happy with my Nitron R1. Not a racer but do enjoy spirited riding in the twisties. It really helped with the jarring road buckles.

I dont think there is a bad decision to be made here.


Being that both shocks are good, I would make the decision based on after sale service. Do you have a suspension shop, near you, that services either one?

i have a yss dealer. who i can take the bike to and get the shock made and fitted. i rung hyperpro and they want another 160 on top because i take our lass 40% of the time. the shock above needs revalving for higher weights. so thats that one out. the yss is drawing me in with it have a preload adjuster aswell for that price

Nitron NTR-1 transformed my bike - fast road riding only. Mine only cost £429. Aug 2017 direct from Nitron. I backed the damping off 2 clicks to get a bit softer ride.

Both a good. Ktech makes one in that price range I think as well.

Sure you can it comes with a fancy tool to do that. But when you order they ask you your weight and style of riding and choose your spring rate accordingly.

I like that K-Tech, I have a K-Tech on my GSXR race bike, awesome shock!

I think I’m going to have to spend more money on the GSX now.
