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.

Hi, I completely endorse groundhog105's perspective and opinions.
Todd is great to work with IMO.
i put a custom-tuned GTM on my 2009 GRiSO and have sincerely appreciated the improved cornering manners, which is what i was hoping for. Can't speak to extended travel experience but definitely appreciate the grin factor in the twisties!

Hi Groundhog
How much more expensive is the M2 with ride height adjustment?

Hey Jon, do you mean shock length adjustment (guessing so as they all allow preload for SAG etc) ?
GT website says you can select any length at same price but guessing it's a one off option (see below)

French Shock Factory doesn't mention length adjustment option

It's odd because they don't offer that option if you select GRiSO & add to basket

They don't even offer the M2 - but the bodies look the same - I suppose for Brits the question would be how does it compare with
a Hagon Hagon shock for 100 GRiSO at £300 to £420
or a Nitron Nitron options for Norge at £400 to £650

The cost difference was about $100. I found that after about 5000 miles the shock works even better.
