think what i'l do is treat myself to a custom shock, leaning towards the nitron r1, i can see that there is an option to get a Hydraulic Preload, ayone know whether nitron supply a custom mount for that to fit onto the street triple, don't want it to look naff!

I have seen it Murp, but that 10+ kg will probably mean I would need new spring for my weight, after all Im investing in this to be as perfect as possible- thanks very much for the offer though, if you really made it an offer I could not refuse then maybe I would though  :009:

FWIW I refound a webpage I've looked at before.
www.sonicsprings.com
Find Your Spring Rate from the left hand side, 2/3 down

Answer is in kg/mm. Multiply by 672 to convert to lb/foot

Could always have a coffee at Boxhill and a short trip to Steve Jordan.  :018:

Preload makes no difference to how hard the suspension is, it just changes ride height for a given load. You could get a different rear shock with softer spring which would suit your weight. If you regularly carry a pillion then get one with remote preload adjuster so you can easily jack it up to compensate, although adding a pillion when you have a softer rear spring may make the ride "interestimg"! The rear suspension link is very progressive to compensate for extra load tbf.

I have also read the linkage is progressive to compensate for the extra load of a passenger, stiffer at the begining then softer thereafter. My bike is solo only (cowl and passenger pegs/brackets removed), anyone try a set of linear rate links? They seem fairly popular with the Daytona owners and are claimed to reduce the initial harshness over sharp bumps.

just having a look at speccing a Nitron for myself,

i carry a pillion once in a while, and im just wondering which box to tick in the options, and wondering what they change depending on whether i have a pillion or not,

is it just the preload from factory?

in another words what is the difference between specifying pillion and no pillion use from nitron?

No idea - have you thought of actualy asking them Instead of soliciting opinions?

It's a fact that one spring won't suit both, and if they compromise it won't suit either.
