Yamaha MT, XSR and Tracer series suspensions

Italian specialist Matris has new model-specific set-up and tuned suspension products available to “improve performance and driving comfort” on Yamaha’s popular MT, XSR and Tracer family.

For the ‘13-’16 and 2017 MT-09, Tracer 900 and XSR 900, the company’s M46KD and M46KF multi-adjustable rear monoshock is available with hydraulic spring preload in their “DarkSeries” design “for a perfect look and aesthetic combination”; SDK and SDR steering damper kits for improved sports and fast/sport riding stability; F20K series complete multi-adjustable hydraulic cartridge kit; and “entry level” FKS and FRK series spring and hydraulic kits - all with dedicated settings and springs that can be installed without modifications to the original fork.
For the MT-07/Tracer 700/XSR 700, Matris has its M46KD series rear monoshock - multi-adjustable in rebound, length and spring preload (standard or hydraulic) with dedicated springs for custom configuration.
On the front, their innovative F15K hydraulic cartridge, multi-adjustable in compression-rebound-spring preload, transforms the original non-adjustable fork into a fully adjustable suspension, plus their “entry level” FKE and FSE fork sets. These easy to install kits do not require any modification to the original fork.

MT-03 specific products to improve set-up and performance include their fully adjustable M46KD and M46KF series hydraulic shock absorbers with on demand hydraulic spring preload adjustment; “entry level” FKE and FSE fork kit series, and new multi-adjustable F15K hydraulic cartridge with driver weight-specific dedicated spring option.
For Yamaha’s “flagship” MT-10 maxi naked style bike, the Matris M46KD, M46K and M46R series monoshocks are multi-adjustable in compression, rebound, length and spring preload with new IK (Integrated Knob adjustment) option - available in ‘Dark and ‘Shadow’ style versions; also available is their F12R fork kit – a “classic” multi-adjustable hydraulic cartridge - and new “sealed” F25SA hydraulic cartridge.
