I would think that any qualified suspension shop could handle all the servicing on Nitron products.

Being in San Jose, I would check in with Catalyst Reaction suspension tuning in San Carlos, CA.

Dave Moss and company did a stellar job re-valving forks on my 1050 Tiger's Showa units a few years back. Reasonable prices too.

They will be rebuilding the Ohlins shock on my DR650 soon ... $125 complete with all new seals, oil, cleaning.

That Nitron shock is a beauty, love to hear how everything works once you get the forks and everything installed. Safe Riding!

Ran into a guy about a week ago in Yosemite - asked him how he like his hypermotard and he loved it. Said the thing that transformed it for him was the mupo single leg drop in.

That might have been an expensive conversation for me. I think the stock suspension is good at speed, harsh going slow, and couldn't justify well over a grand for a full mupo install, but the single fork option has interested me. This is a $500 drop in.

A winter project - hmmm?

I'm now at 1000 miles on my Ohlins TTX36 shock and Mupo K911 carts. Nothing but transformed the bike to say other than I think it cost me something like $3k at the end of the day. Ouch!

I am looking at upgrading the suspension on my hyper and trying to find the best options available. Clearly, the Mupo and Nitron full setup needs special tools and skilled hands for the job. Not aware of anyone who can do this here and me sending the forks abroad and back involves a lot of expense and customs duties :( sign.
How easy or simple is the Mupo single fork drop in to install? wonder if the Ducati service guys can handle it here?

In a word, yes. The drop-in is indeed a drop-in.

The rear shock is every bit as important. It is important to have a balanced suspension. Mupo drop-in and Mupo rear shock.

sounds like a solution

Looks like I have a solution. I will speak to the Ducati technician here and Mupo seems to me this is the best and easy solution.
Single drop-in + rear Mupo would be good enough. Has anyone got first-hand experience with the single drop-in cartridge? Is it worth it?
RSL - does your suspension guy recommend the single drop-in?

This last weekends ride in the Ozark National Forest unpaved backroads was the first time the new Mupo suspension was tested this way. There is absolutely no comparison to stock suspension in the way the Mupo handles washboard road surfaces, invisible rocks, and all the other abuse Jeep roads offer. No comparison at all.

What would hammer the OE suspension is absorbed.

What would cause the bike direction to be deflected, doesn't do so with the Mupo.

I am going to replace the oil in my forks just wondering how much do I need in total for both forks?
