On the other hand, what I'm interested is the front shocks on Triumph Tiger made by Showa. Do any of you, Triumph owners replace it due to it poor performance off road, or you totally happy with it?
That's totally dependent on the rider. The forks are not adjustable, however they are set up to cover quite a wide range. Heavier riders and serious off road riders has had their forks re-worked for their weight with heavier springs. Some accomplish what they need to accomplish by adjusting the fork oil levels. But from what I have read most seem to be happy with the stock setup.
I weigh 170 lbs. and it works well for me on road and off. Even when loaded. If I had one wish it would be the ability to adjust compression. It would allow for a little fine tuning for loaded with two up.
