    Post your suspension settings here.

    Ok so it seems the MT-09 is a little bit bouncy and skitish in standard form and as most of us either aren't ready to or don't intend to upgrade the suspension so need to get the most out of the standard kit. So it would be handy to have some settings that give good results in one place so go ahead and post your settings along with your weight.

    Sag needs to be adjusted to your weight. Not the bike.

    As above, sag needs to be set with you on the bike. I'm after some general settings that people of varying weights have tried and found to be better than stock.

    Ok. I posted this on another thread this afternoon but in the interests of information here goes....

    I'm 13st and 6ft tall.

    Rear shock...cranked to number 6 and damping wound fully in then back half a turn

    Front shocks are wound rite down so only the first ring is showing (I believe this is 10mm but can confirm if needed to) and damping is the same as the rear...fully in (hard) and back half a turn.

    This has sorted it to near perfect for me, (handles just as good as my K7 Gixxer track bike)! corner speeds are being carried a lot faster with no twitching when you get in the power early. No "diving" of the front forks under harsh breaking now either.

    I hope this helps so wot.

    Just remember every rider has a different style so it mite not be to ur liking.
