most likely the spring has been replaced......
take the sbock to a race car prep shop they'll have the press to remove the spring
and should have the tool to measure the spring rate......call around
if you want to go up or down in rate Öhlins springs are easy to find
Hi, and nice to hear of another MV owner up north! I don't fidnd the ride too hard and weigh 82kg. I played with the fast and soft rebound and that helped it out.im located just outside Edinburgh, most mv came with yellow there are also some with blue they did not have markings i changed the spring on my 910r simply because it felt like you were sitting on a brick i am not a heavy guy think in terms of danny pedrosa so went for a softer spring but all riders are different.
Thanks for the heads up about Perth, and I will do most work myself too and especially as a little research is normally more than the dealer would do anyway!you can read the post in the general section under had a misfortune
