Looking to upgrade my rear shock on my GRiSO.
Considering. Stelvio setup, as many people on the forum have has success. I know many of the regular forum members are not overly fond of Guzzi Tech, but I wondered if anyone has any feedback about this shock. Looks like it could be a contender, and the price isn't terrible.

Kind regards, Norm

Think from memory this is a Mupo, just sold through GTM. I can't check as I have been banned for having an opinion.

I have one, and find that is makes the ride much more compliant for my 200 lbs. Think it’s sourced from the Shock Factory in the U.K. The combined damping/compression adjustment is exceedingly easy to change (preload, not so much). Much better than stock for me!

I think your right, I checked the shock factory website, and they look the same, and the price is the same too.
Thanks for your reply

I have just installed one of these on my GRiSO and have a couple hundred miles on it. I bought the M2 model with separate rebound and compression adjustment. My impression so far is that it is a HUGE improvement over the Sachs stock shock. I purchased thru Todd at guzzitech and gave him a lot of information regarding riding weight, passenger weight % of time solo luggage weight etc and Todd worked with the mfg to get the right spring and valving. When I got the shock I put it on as shipped and the ride is firm but compliant. The dampening is not harsh like the Sachs unit. In a couple days I’m leaving on a two week tour and will get a much better review of the shock. I have had Öhlins, Wilber, Penske shocks in the past so I have a pretty good idea of what good shocks are for comparison. If you order on of these I encourage you to use Todd. He is a good vendor and stands behind what he sells.
