    Anyone used MCT suspension ?

    I am considering having my rear shock rebuilt with a heavier spring. I have read some good reports about MCT on other forums, just wondering if anyone on here has used them ?

    Not heard of any MT/FZ owners using MCT.

    OEM Shock needs to be revalved too; an especially more so with a beefier spring.

    So bear in mind the total cost; as a Nitron (mid range) R2 quality shock and correct spring for your weight is in the 580 + Vat region.

    And good base R1 385 + Vat. Top R3 Race 655+Vat.

    Yeah i had been thinking about getting a nitron. I had a good chat with the guy at MCT after hearing good reports. They can re- valve and fit a heavier spring to the standard shock for under 300 so i think i will give them a try. A bit easier to justify than 600+ for a new shock.

    Sounds good. I was lucky I got secondhand Nitron half price. Continue posting on how it goes. Best wishes.

    I'm getting my shock back from MCT tomorrow! My last 2 bikes have had work done to them by Darren and is worth every penny. My MT10 is getting an ohlins spring fitted, that Darren recommended, as I'm a big lad at 120 kgs with full kit, in my defence I'm 6'6" and its cost 300 but I did post it down to them.
    Hopefully get it fitted tomorrow and a ride out soon after. I found the oe very harsh on bumpy road and wasn't expecting them to suggest a stronger spring.

    They said they were doing an MT10 shock for a customer when i spoke to them the other day so was probably yours BigLee He said the spring wasnt the main issue as much as the damping but when i told him my weight was 125+kg he reckoned a spring would be required lol. I am keen to hear your verdict after a ride. Did you have any work on the forks ? He said a change of oil and different air gap would improve them also.

    I was just and so too heavy for the oe spring so plumped for the nice yellow ohlins
    No work done on the front as I found it ok so far but the rear was harsh
