Nitron shocks have been designed and built to provide many years of exceptional performance, however, as with any performance product, it is recommended that they are regularly serviced by Nitron or a Nitron Approved Service Centre to ensure they are kept in optimum condition.


The frequency of a recommended service varies according to the individual schedule received with the shock, however the recommended servicing schedules are detailed below.

For arduous Race use, the service time frames are dependent on application.

Nitron warrants all its products and accessories against design and material defect for a period of 2 years from date of purchase. Uniquely, Nitron offer a rolling 12 month parts and labour warranty on all shocks that are serviced by a Nitron Approved Service Centre.


Shocks are serviced and rebuilt to ensure they perform at their optimum level throughout their operating life. The stresses and forces encountered with road and track riding or racing eventually begin to deplete the shearing ability of the oil within the shock which leads to a drop in damping performance.

A full inspection and service by either Nitron or an Authorised Nitron Service Centre is the only way to ensure your Nitron shock continues to perform at the same high level as it was designed to do when it left was brand new for many years to come.

If you need any advice on the correct type of service for your shock or have any other questions regarding servicing, please contact us.
