Good luck. I shopped for 8 months to find mine, and happened upon a member who was selling one, so I got it private before it went public.

They are very rare.

Was thinking more of an after market one.

Will ask the local guy if he can do a Nitron. Hagon is also an option from the UK.

Will ask Jamie at Daugherty Motorsport as well.

I assumed as such, and I continued the assumption and jumped straight to OhlinsBling

Got the Nitron fitted now. Stunning quality, blows my Ohlins out of the water for finish.

Yes he has bought a Ducati.

Was thinking of you yesterday, found some Hornet fork comp valves which I will drill for you and build a stack for you to try. Will be a week or two but they are now in my pile of work to do.

Ah, good man! Will be very interested to try something different. Also have some steering head bearings on the shelf, ready to go when the forks are out...
