Has anyone used one of the rear shock absorbers that Twin motorcycle sell on a Tuber as they seem quite a reasonable price, what the opinion. https://www.twinmotorcycles.nl/webshop/ ... 0456&s=&a=

Fitted one to a customers bike, he now wishes he'd spent the extra on an AST or Penske......it was too short, has no remote reservoir and the damping was shit !

Just be aware that there is a high proportion of not very happy AST shock owners out there (ask at the other place). I am not one of them, fortunately, but I 100% wouldn't buy an AST shock.

Thanks but it is very limited on the S1 as it works on tension rather than compression .

Biggest issue with AST is they are too firm on the damping even on minimum setting so they can be a bit harsh on rough roads.
