    I've seen them advertised here. Big bucks - like more expensive than Ohlins or Nitron. I havent used one for that reason - my Scottish heritage won't allow it.

    Bought some Bitubo shocks($900) for my Street Twin via eBay back in September. Couldnt afford Fox or Ohlins $1000+
    They arrived yesterday.
    Fitted them today and will make some comments after some use.

    There are several versions of shockabsorber offered by Bitubo the ones I got have adjustable compression and rebound.
    Springs are tailored to my riding weight.

    Fitted Bitubo WME to my 2017 Thruxton S in 2019. Cost about $800 incl duty for the pair from Carpi Moto in Italy.
    Look nicely made, are a big improvement over the OEM for adjustability and ride.

    Thanks for that, I would agree.
    I have had one ride and felt the bike was more stable when riding lumpy corners.
    I also think I need to crank up the springs a little....is that rebound or compression?

    rebound and compression is referring to the damping, not the springing
