Rear shock swap on mk1
« on: 12 April, 2019, 08:20:19 AM »
Hello.
Thinking of swapping out the rear shock on my mk1 to include rebound adjustment. I don't have the budget for the top quality ones so was thinking of going down the the cbr900 route. Have any of you done this and what was the out come. I did this on a 1200 bandit with a hayabusa rear shock and the result was great.
Thanks.

Nitron or Hagon are cheap and very good.
Red MK II with full luggage, MRA screen, hugger, crash bungs, heated grips and Autocom.
CB1300SA with a few bits.

I have Nitron installed, it takes about 30min to swap them around.
Huge improvement over stock one.

yes but how about the CBR900RR rear shock, does it fit, and if it does, from which year?
Does anyone know?
Interested myself also
thank you
