Hey folks! Have any of you considered upgrading your forks or rear shock? Have you seen anything come on the market yet?

As in the reviews I agree that the standard suspension is okay. I had the suspension on my '15 Tiger 800 changed to Andreani fork internals and a Nitron rear shock, which was a total transformation of the bike, on which I did a lot of touring two-up, which was, I considered worth the £1100-£1200 cost. The '15 Tiger 800 front forks were non adjustable and totally shoulder jarring on some road surfaces. :151:

But for the riding I will mainly be doing with the Trident its not worth the expense.

Also these sort of upgrades really take the Trident into Street Triple money and probably beyond with all the other OEM accessories you might have.

In that case then I can thoroughly recommend the Andreani & Nitron combo.  :123:

I fitted Nitron fork internals and fully adjustable shocks on my Speed Twin so I'm a fan of Nitron.  I saw the other day that they have already developed an adjustable fork kit and a choice of 3 rear shocks.  They will build them to suit your weight and riding style/pillion etc.

About the same price as the kit I had on my '15 plate Tiger XRx in 2016.
