    Hagon all the way mate! They're individually made to your weight/ type of use inc. pillion.

    All parts completely replaceable. Full rebuild facilities. Made in UK & will transform your bike.

    I couldn't believe how much the handling improved. Night & Day!! Absolutely brilliant. Quality product. Well worth the investment.

    Don't go through any 3rd party - deal direct with them on their website.
    Really easy process & you will save a load of money!

    Think mine took about 2weeks. Go for Hagon blue it looks ace. Can send you pics of mine if you want.

    Hope this helps?

    I went with a Nitron rear shock and spring. More than happy with it except for the cheapo bracket they supplied for the reservoir mount. I replaced that with a couple of P clamps attached to my top box frame.

    I was familiar with Nitron for their quality work with Lotus.
