Hey, I have spent the last couple of weeks investigating suspension options for our bikes, mine is a 2016 MT09. pricing seems to have changed a lot since most of the threads were made so I thought I would update my current findings as of this week.
So, I contacted a few different suppliers...
Fork cartridges and rear shock - £75 incl. carriage
Pair of fork cartridges from a 2015 Tracer 900 (to enable a second rebound damper cartridge to be fitted) - £35 including UK mainland carriage.
Tracer 900 rear shock (1000 miles) - £35 including UK mainland carriage.
£65 for both including...
I have just been trying to change the fork oil on my Tracer. Starting with the right hand leg the manual states 431 ml of oil should equate height of 175 mm.
As I did not completely strip the fork just removed the cap, spacer and spring I knew it would not take the full 431 ml. I...
Hi, do you know somone what SAE number fork oil is original(stock) in MT-09 forks?
I have made 2 right cartridges modification with Hyperpro progresive springs and put in 10W Motul fork oil factory line with 145mm oil level and i think it is too heavy?

'morning from the Shire!
picked up a 2015 with ABS, 2k miles last week and I'm one 100 mile ride into ownership. This is the most modern bike I've owned by a good ten years or more, and it shows - what a motor!
Need to get fuelling sorted either by sending ECU away for reflash maybe here...
Getting tired of the front end dive under braking. Does anyone have any experience of progressive fork springs with the stock shock? Would I be better off getting stronger linear springs? I realize new cartridges and shock are the ultimate fix but if I can just reduce the brake dive I will be...

Well bike just out of the garage for the new season and 100 miles more on the clock since the right hand fork seal started leaking and they were both replaced by the dealer. Blow me the right hand seal id leaking again. :(

Acquired some ohlins fork springs off of a member.
Ohlins recommend their 01309 oil which is 19 centistoke at 40 degrees (WTF?)
Now that's not readily available and no doubt will cost a fortune so what SAE fork oil should I use?
I'm guessing 5 or 10W ?
Had my MT since April, always had sports bikes previously, but getting too old for the riding position now. The Mt ticked all my boxes when announced so far impressed with the motor and looks, but the suspension is a bit Iffy... I am looking at fitting a ZX6R rear shock and some Maxton fork...
