Suspension Set up

Just a quick post I had the suspension checked on my Dragster RR it seams to be set a bit low at the rear and to firm on the front from the factory, therefore the front didn't turn in as sharp as I wanted and out of a corner under power it wanted to run wide.
Took it to FTR Suspension they set up the sag etc. levelled the bike out and dialled in there settings, and it has transformed the bike, it now pulls into a corner and feels so stable.
Well worth the 40 now it not only looks great but it handles superb.

Suspension Set up

Ive been trying to get a reputable suspension guru for the Turismo, it dives and squats quite badly the way it's set up just now (done at my local suspension specialist) I have tried MCT suspension and he won't even touch the bike until I have the alignment checked and corrected if it's out which seems a bit extreme to me.
Not sure of the rear options (if any) are available for the Turismo but andrianni? do a front cartridge kit for it but doubt my abilities can justify the expense of it.
I'll give these guys a phone see if they can work the same magic on the Turismo as they have done with you.
Cheers for posting this info.

Hi FTR are agents for ohlins and andreani and really know there stuff they sorted my MT09 out last year, I think the stock MV kit is fine it just needs setting up, give them a call and good luck.

Hi Red800. I took my F4 to MCT and they did a cracking job on the suspension and setup. I used the bike for years for track days and very little road use but even now that I started using it on the roads again after some years away it still feels great.

MCT is based in Stowmarket , Suffolk , IP145AH - not sure if that's helpful for you.

Hi Red, have you made any progress with the suspension on your TV?
I have mine set to the Sport rebound and compression front and rear, and have measured the sag and it seems correct. I'm fairly light at 133lbs (60kg).
just back from a 2200 mile trip to the Dordogne on a wide variety of roads, and feel the suspension definitely needs improvement.
The front isnt too bad, but despite the long travel it felt harsh over really bumpy back roads. The rear is wallowy through bumpy bends , sometimes setting up a weaving through the bars. More rear damping required?
