    Ninja 650 shock options


    So looking for a Ninja650 race shock. Seems to be none used anywhere so was looking around at different brands.

    Took a look at the Nitron British made shock. Looks nice but haven't seen one in use. Nitron Racing Shocks

    Anyone have recommendations? I think only Elka and Penske make shocks for the bike but they are about twice as much (about).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    From what I've heard, Nitron is similar to K-Tech. Talk to PK, K-Tech may have one for the 650 as well.

    Maxton seems to be the #1 choice in the UK.
    I have a Penske on mine.
    Used parts for that bike in the U.S. Are as common as unicorns

    Do you have the 8983? That's the one to get for racing right?

    Do they make an 8987 for it? 8983 is a double, IIRC.
