PB Magazine - B4 suspension upgrade

Anyone seen this month's PB and the suspension work done by MCT on Chris' B4?

As a B4 owner I've waiting to see what he came up with and am tempted to do the same. Great to upgrade what is already there and I've always found suspension upgrades effective on my previous machines.

Anyone on here had the same work done by MCT?
Armando1969 and Airkitty like this.

Well I went ahead and I had the work done. A great turnaround by MCT and a good chat afterwards about what they've done and what I can expect.

It's all set including the sag (but will re-check this once installed and I'm kitted up).

Looking forward to hitting the track this year and seeing how it goes, on the road too.

I rate MCT, their work is very good.

I had a WP rear shock and a fork upgrade done on a Firestorm by Darren a few years ago, it totally transformed the bike. Suspension work is the best performance upgrade you can do to a bike I reckon.

I've moved a bit further north so it's a bit too far to go there for work these days.

Too far for me too so I just posted it there and back.

Nice for Parcelforce not to kick the living daylights out of a parcel for a change!

What did you have done? I took my Brutale there and he fiddled with the suspension a bit then told me it would really need a revalve.

A bit unfortunate as I have taken many bikes there in the past and he’s had the kit ready to insert. I think he prefers the postal route now rather than visits (or maybe he’s just sick of me turning up with another bike to be tweaked). He certainly knows his stuff, the vfr1200f I took was fat better after he d done some “experimental” stuff to the fork internals.

Re-valve front and rear, new oil etc. They do something simple with the front cartridges too. The springs were fine so didn't need changing for my weight/style.

I've yet to try it as the winter overhaul is still in progress - typical with this current weather!!
