I fitted Discover SNS shock absorbers on my RX for ride comfort but, I'm not happy with the decision.The bike with a pillion rider fishtails at fast turns. Thinking to change back to original shock absorbers. Opinions/suggestions welcome.

Well, you need to change the settings to 5 (hardest) when you ride with pillion, yet it feels slightly softer compared to the stocks. But when you make the setting to 5, IT WILL IMPROVE. Yes, its a little pain to keep shifting like this with solo & pillion, but the comfort that you get with SNS & solo is awesome.

What you may want to do before buying is to approach a neighbour friendly spare parts shop or garage, check for the fitment of both Endurance SNS as well as Nitrox & then consider which one to go for after checking the height yourself.

Thanks alot Aargee! Endurance SNS seems to be a better option. I would be trying it soon!

Thanks aargee for the response. I am at setting '5' already! May be those shox are capable enough just to carry me alone and nothing extra! (I weigh 80 kgs )
