Nitron Rear Shock

The Nitron shock absorber replaced the OEM rear shock on a 2016 CRF1000A-G Africa Twin. I found that the rear shock was far too soft particularly when carrying a pillion and luggage. The Nitron shock absorber was custom built to cope with the following:
Rider + Gear of 90/95kg
Pillion + Gear 65kg
Luggage 30kg
Mainly road use with occasional off-road capability.
The difference in bike handling was amazing. The bike was restored to standard before trading in.
For sale at £300 OVNO including postage.

Is it just the standard shock or does it have the remote adjustment/reservoir?

Nitron Shock Absorber

It's the standard shock without the remote adjustment. The cost for the remote adjustment was approximately another £250 in addition to the almost £500 for this unit.

Once I figure out how to post photos, I'll put one up. Unfortunately my software does not allow me to reduce the memory required.
