I know some people have fitted the Button shock but are they any good? How do they compare to the original one?
Cheers

nitron rear shock tranforms the handling because it works unlike probably your knackered original!
I'd recommend it and not a bad price at around £200 with spring to suit your weight

Very well built and great performance at a sensible price in my opinion.

Im using Nitrons in 2 of 500s and they are excellent shocks, My RZV has the reote reservoir model and My RG500 has the model with no reservoir. Both work really well.

Do Nitron do other TZ shocks as well? Maybe custom end links?

There are 3 models of Nitron shocks.
First one is equivalent to the standard RD/RZ one with preload adjustment and damping settings.
Second one as first one and provides also separate rebound damping and compression damping settings.
Third one as second one and provides separate low-speed compression and high-speed compression damping settings.
And, not sure of this, but I think all models provide adjustable length ( ie bike height ).
