Got my shock fitted now, not ridden it yet but have set the sag to a good starting point on the bike. Only had to adjust the front, the rear was about right.
I did notice after trying that the adjuster is a pig. I've not got small hands but even so. Maybe putting it on the lift and getting a different angle on it will help.
Anyone got any pearls of wisdom? I read good things about this shock on this forum but nobody mentioned access.

Cheers.

I have removed my cat so ymmv but try taking the exhaust cover off, there's plenty of room on mine to get your hand in there.

Contacted Nitron about that, they said put a piece of rag or something around it.:rolleyes:
So I drilled some Tommy bar holes in the ring and bent a piece of rod at 90deg.

Use a wide blade screwdriver against the knurled edge, you can do one setting at a time this way.
