The TR908 is a first generation Ohlins TTX36, it is a little longer and has a little longer stroke than Street Triple specific aftermarket shocks from Ohlins (there are several versions, incl. cup version). The TR908 also has a 110N/mm spring fitted which is to the stiff side as well as a quite slow rebound. And it is more than 5 years old, so a rebuild is probably due anyway. You could risk looking at purchase price (eg. GBP 350'ish), new spring (GBP 60'ish), rebuild and reshim (GBP 100'ish). I would recommend looking for some of the low priced new old stock aftermarket TTX GP that pops up from time to time on ebay, eg:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Triumph-daytona-675-2010-ohlins-shock-absorber-ttx-rt-tr-339/362243318584?epid=760409450&hash=item5457626338:m:mP0xg10L345rTyKbXhRDscA

This will get you a lower rate spring, length adjustability, hydraulic preload adjuster and the GP damping adjusters and generally better parts than the OEM TR908.

Thanks for the info mate Im sure it will help me out a lot, guess Ill be living on eBay for the foreseeable future 😉
