So, I am ready to upgrade but there are quite a few options out there. Is the best bet just to go with an Ohlin or what do our members say? Thanks!!

Hi

With such a question, you should get the entire list of aftermarket shocks, as the best one to fit your bike :D
That's helpful for a list of whats available but I wanted th hear what others have already done and if they would of gone a different way after the fact.

Hi Dave
I get the impression that generally everyone who replaced the stock rear suspension has been very happy. I can only vouch for Maxton but sounds like all the after market products deliver a vast improvement.

I think there's a Brisbane suspension thread on here where some comparisons are made on 3 manufacturers. The conclusion was that Ohlins and Nitron are both very good improvements on standard but both were "harsher" than the M shock which proved the most comfortable. I'm going to buy an EMC offering
EMC France : EMC Shock Absorbers SportShock 2 for
in the spring. I'll give some feedback here but It won't be until well into spring.

I played around with the stock shock, to no avail. then bought a Nitron which was way! way! better and with simple adjustments ((which I have for sale)) you cant go wrong I did 100km on it but then while discussing front shock cartridges with SB Ken I bought the SBKen rear shock (and front shocks) and it was way! better again then the Nitron but you do have to play with the settings a lot more to get them spot on and then remember your settings for dirt riding. but it is adjustable on the move too.

I reckon at the end of the day day they are all selling good gear so it depends what you want to get out of your bike. I cant see me selling this bike so why not put some good gear on it!

Overall I'm happy with my Nitron shock, but not the rusty bolt they supply. God knows why it's not plated.

Way too stiff, unless you weigh a lot more than most of us.
Your right I have been riding my classic for about 4 days now it's only done 400 miles but I have messed about with the rear shock and it's still harsh I'm 12 stone my mate got on the back yesterday I took him up the road and the rear was super smooth with the springs compressed in more . So I have been trolling the internet last night looking what to spend my money on Ohlins, Nitron and Maxton or something else they all seem to be in the £450 mark just looking on here what to go for :confused:
