Modified R1 shock- to fit mk1/2
on: January 17, 2021, 09:52:50 AM
Sold my 2013 street triple last year and been meaning to list these for ages.

R1 shock, modified to fit street triple. An uncommon approach as most people opt for a CBR600 shock but this gives you independent high and low speed compression, rebound damping and hydraulic preload via Allen key adjustment. Plus the preload adjustment is easily accessible when the shock is fitted unlike the CBR600 shock.

Was near new when bought as the previous wonder removed it to fit aftermarket and I only did 3000 miles with it fitted.

New spring fitted as oem spring was too soft for me (15 stone) but it would also work for slightly lighter or heavier rider as there is adjustment either way.

Cost me about £150 to buy the shock and parts for conversion, but was a big improvement. Iím after £100 for it collected from Northampton or can post but would be extra due to weight needing courier.

It was fitted to mk1 street triple R, but I believe will also fit mk2 and possible more but not tested can provide dimensions if needed
