    Hi I have for sale a STANDARD rear shock with hydraulic pre load adjuster for a 2015 CR having covered only 8000 mls from new, reason for sale I have upgraded to a Andreani front end and needed a new rear shock to get the settings right, the shock is dry and the adjuster in full working order may fit mk1 but can't be sure any takers? best offer by the end of the week then onto ebay I am in Havering but willing to travel a reasonable distance to meet.
    Thanks Les, now on ebay (302476309959)

    I went with a Nitron R1 anything more seemed to be overkill for a sport tourer the ride is very smooth, now to get the front set up again (Andreani) but Nitron TVT cartridges on the way so options as to what set-up I stay with I just want a compliant supportive ride, on smooth roads it's lovely but very harsh on broken surface and pot holes, this what I'M trying to cure

    Yeah, that harshness is what I managed to get rid of with re-valving at both ends. You'll get there! :028:
    The Nitron shock is the same as I have on my TDM, although if I were buying another I'd get the remote preload option! Great shock though.. the combined damping adjuster works really well for road use. Have Nitron now developed shocks for the Crossrunner, or did you get one for another model to fit? Neither mk1 or 2 is listed on their site, but I know one of the mk1 owners here had one developed on their bike.

    Heh, nice work sir!  :028:  Aye.. hopefully they'll have one available soon, or at least by the time my OEM shock is worn out!   :017:

    Congrats. I was the unlucky soul who picked up the Mk1 development deal.  :001:
    I went for the R2 with all the trimmings.
