They very well may as they dont manufacture the units themselves but the T7 kits are Hyperpro...either way I would be happy with either of those manufacturers.
Search Tractive and T7 and no results, search Hyperpro and T7 and the kit is shown.

One of the key parts to the T7's off road performance is the swing arm angle. Power jacking is used as a positive. If you lower one you have a chance of changing this.

I'll risk it if the I'm buying from a reputable manufacturer that specialises in suspension modifications such as Hyperpro..or Tractive.
I'm interested in lowering the bike more than off road power jacking.
For 225 gbp I dont see it as a great risk and a simple reversal.
It's not a performance enhancement I'm looking for.

Neither am I really....I still think in my head that I am the age if when I used to hop on my KTM640 Adventurer without a seat and thought... my body keeps trying to tell me different...🤭
