÷hlins has a model specific for the Z H2 now:

Seems nearly identical to the one for the H2 SX except for the length, 312 vs 318:

Yes it is the one from H2 SX but one step softer spring. I had to buy also that SX spring but with this sag was spot on. Yes I have also H2 slipon without dB-killer. I like it as it kind of belongs to H2 specialty. It is 5 kg lighter than original muffler and great sound.

Spring is the same 120 N/mm as H2 SX. Mine is now 110 N/mm. Original shock was 318 mm and mine is the same. Shock does not look like that. Reservoir is directing downwards and knobs are different place.

Yeah the picture on the website is just for reference.
Glad to see you got it fitted properly. Might go with the one for the H2 SX also since I'll probably be able to find one of those for less money. Not sure which spring to go with though. These can't rely compare to the shock I fitted on my Z1K (KA 434 from the STX 46 street family).

You can test that 120 N/mm and if it is too hard then order softer one. I am 95 kg so you can compare. I donít like too hard spring. I am very happy I changed it to softer one.

I don't mind a firm spring as long as it does what it's supposed to. I'm only 84 kg without equipment though.

 :762: Looking forward to your review of this shock.  I have been trying to find the price of the KA 465, and will contact Nitron to see if they will have one to fit.  At present I find the shock ok, but there is always room for improvement  :002: May just go for a setup in the first instance.

Stay safe everyone.

Great, thanks for the info, i think I'll be doing the same as the stock spring is too hard IMO.

Dang, I missed 2nd page, so many of my questions already answered. Thank you for this!! Funny though how we each feel about the spring. I weigh in @ 100 kg, I find it wallows and drops down quite a bit, that is after I tightened up the spring as much as I could. Ugh. I need to diet. But if I keep going through fuel as much as I am, I won't be able to keep eating as well.  :156: :164:
