    Most people go to mct. But in the past they couldnt help me with my mupo shock. He said whos ever heard of mupo. Funny thing is mupo are on race winning bikes like the recent win by michele pirro in the spanish championship.
    Doesnt fill you full of confidence.
    I think the option to switch it all off like it was manual suspension would be megga. I wonder if the 2019 will have this option?

    MCT Suspension

    To be honest Iíve never heard of Mupo Suspension either and Iím willing to bet a lot of others wonít have either. The big three suspension brands you see in UK race paddocks at all levels from Club to National are K-Tech, ÷hlins and Bitubo so that doesnít surprise me in the slightest. As for MCT Suspension, a good percentage of those in the BSB support classes use him. He is also one of only a few suspension tuners that has a great deal of experience with DDC equipped bikes.

    True they arent as well know over here but if they just smashed the lap record at imola with mupo i think at least a suspension specialist should have heard of them. I will contact mct over winter for advice though

    Re: DDC Suspension

    Loads of bikes are using Mupo lately. Most of the Italian championship bikes are on them in the way KTech have dominated over here and there's quite a lot of club and national guys using them this year. Half the Ducati Tri Options guys are on them including many of the winners. Dave the guy who does the distribution here in the UK is mega keen and working really hard to promote them. He travels to a lot of the races where riders are using them to give free support. I've bought the front Pot so I have the option of trying to make the DDC suspension work better but I'm very likely to go to Mupo if I race this bike. The only thing thats stopped me is handy cash and wanting in an ideal world to buy another bike for racing so I can keep this one for Nurburgring and the road.

    That on its own is hugely valuable.

    Dave travels out to fit them in most cases now and will do a free setup whilst he is at it and show you how they work. The Mupo 911 design is pretty cool since you can adjust the spring rate so no need for different stiffness of springs. I'll post some proper info if I end up buying them but I've known Dave from track days for a few years since before he was the Mupo distributor and he was always really happy to help with setup just because of his personal interest despite me never having bought anything off him so it's only right I give him some praise!

    How do you change the rate of a spring without changing the spring weight/wind/thickness?
