Yes we always used Maxton in JL race team. Richard and going back further Ron Williams know Clive well. All Clive's race bike have Maxton. However his street loaner has a YSS. Great if you are on a budget which he can also supply and fit too.

NTR R3 looks like a nice bit of kit! Just a bit above and beyond what I need. Which cartridge kit did you go for James?
Thanks
they made one for me as its on the 765 with the big piston forks ,so they gave me more travel and all of the Showa stuff internally went then sprung it for me ,was for track but to be honest the bike feels much more plush on the road as well than it was with the showas,they can do a rear shock for the 765 as well as they used my bike to get the right measurements etc,but I already had the nitron on the back and I am happy with that,nitron ntr2 is also good ,if it was me for the road I would go with that ,the ntr3 only gives high and low speed adjustment as well which you need on track and the valving is probably beefed up a bit ,as said they are both v good companies ,front end I would always go Maxton as they manufacture ,rear end either ,have fun choosing !!

Thanks guys. The more I look the more I'm considering the r2 and the rt10 as well. Think I'll give maxton a call tomorrow, can ask them about their cartridge kits at the same time

Thanks for the advice

Have a look at Wilbers rear shocks they are excellent but expensive 800 ish, I had one on my Daytona it was excellent.also have alook at k-tech razor R 600 ish also very good.

Thought I'd update this as this turned up today.

Maxton RT10


Went for the maxton over the nitron as eventually I will get the front forks done and want to keep the same manufacturer for both. Nitron currently don't do a fork cartridge kit for the street triple yet. Looking forward to getting it fitted and not being bucked off the seat unexpectedly any more!
