    Hi guys,

    So after 10 years I've decided to upgrade my 2014 1000 GT to a 2024 1000 GT.

    I've upgraded the rear shock on my 2014 to a Nitron so my question is will it fit the 2024 bike.

    Nitron list each model separately, but did the frame and swing arm change between models?

    Thanks in advance.

    Check the length of your shock.  On my '16 it is 365mm.  If the length is the same, then it should fit.... if a few mm longer then the rear end will raise slightly, and if shorter, the rear end will be lower (which some prefer as some have lowered their bikes on the rear).  I assume the same remote adjuster, but you can swap that out if much different (I kinda doubt it).

    Hi Tyke,

    I've put a dipper on it from your favourite dealer, Autorama.

    Delivery will be sometime after March 1st, I've told Brian I'm in no rush as I've got to sell my 2014. So if you know anyone who wants a cheap Mk1, 80,000 miles cheap, let me know  :002: :002:

    Cheers
