Nitron have now got a rear shock available for the 05-06 models again following a need to change the piggyback reservoir design because of a parts availability issue.

Here is my unit. I helped check fit a springless prototype and I now have my N2 unit installed.

They haven't done fork kits for the 05-06 up to now but they have my forks and they are making top caps to suit. The forks will be of the 'one leg compression, the other rebound' type.

Very nice. I can't say that I've seen Nitron parts on a 600rr, at least not that I've seen here in the states. I had by shock rebuilt and valved with a new spring by our local shop RaceTech. They added collar adapters to fit the spring and I had zero free sag on the rear and I might as well have been riding on a log. I swapped out to the factory spring and it's too soft but I get better grip than stock and excellent tire wear. Please keep this thread updated with your riding impressions.
