Hi,

I've a 2019 CB500X and found the rear shock to be sadly lacking in pre-load and damping, so I bought a Nitron.  I'm 6"2", weighing around 95kg in full gear.  The Nitron gave a marked improvement.  Mind you, pretty much anything would have been an improvement on Kiwi South Island roads!

I've always thought Kiwi roads were in good condition, I was hoping to come over and hire a bike and do some touring when all this covid crap do's a runner. got some relative's over there.

Well we all have a different experience and opinions, I have changed the shocks and springs on my Kawasaki W650 to Hagons and it has transformed the ride.
Me too, I have changed the shocks on my W650 to hagons, the simpliest with no tuning, and no difference with the used original :155:.
When i have changed for schock factory models, I discovered a new bike! Better handling, better grip, better comfort.
Wilbers springs in the fork.

I put shock factory too on my previous 500S, but I couldn't find the gain I had on the W... a little better but not like i hope.

the improvement seems to vary according to the models.
There are different qualities in hagon, I think it's better to avoid buying the lowest one.

I have to say Hagon were pretty thorough when I chatted with them, type of riding, weight, pillion or just solo etc etc.
The other thought I have is I suppose choice of tyres must play a big part, I was surprised that Hagon sent a 5w oil but I went along with it and found the results excellent.

Yes, when we were talking about the hagons between W owners, the news was circulating that it was easy and quick to change the spring of the shock absorbers for the most adapted one according to the given weight.


And when the hagon is tired, you can make a nice lamp with :156:!
