Tiger / ST 1050 shock advice ?
on: 07 June, 2021, 02:15:47 PM
Hi

Does anyone know if a Tiger 1050 (2012) rear shock would be interchangeable with a ST1050 (2008) unit or how I could find out?

I removed my Nitron shock before selling the ST and it was perfectly set up for the type of riding I do. Having ridden my new (2012) Tiger for a month now, it obviously lacking in the rear shock department and Iím looking for a quick fix?

Anybody tried it ?

Would it fit? Possibly. But just going on the fact the Tiger has 30mm more travel I cant see it working

ST - I assume is a Sprint ST?
I have a Nitron on my Sprint that I was thinking about swapping to the Tiger (2017 TS) I called Nitron who said said no.
You can call Nitron to confirm, they're pretty helpful

I installed a Tiger 1050 SE shock on my son's 2008 Sprint ST when the needle bearing was damaged. Mileage was about 40.000km. This Sprint is now mine and the shock is still trouble free at 80.000km.

I have a 2009 Tiger shock hanging up in my garage. Nice blue spring. I swapped it out with another that I bought that I had regassed. Would the old one fit my new one? I obviously prefer the red spring, but it might be a useful thing to do if I have anything done on this shock..
