G'day from sunny Queensland Australia

Newbie here. Just picked up my MT-07HO (Aussie version of the standard bike as most here are detuned 655cc learner approved bikes). Only done 135kms so far but seems OK apart from a bouncy butt and too much buffeting. So a Nitron shock and Dart Manta screen are on order. Previous owned a couple of TRX850s so I'm used to 270 degree twins - the littler MT is more nimble and lighter than the TRX so once I've got the suspenders sorted I'm expecting to enjoy her. Has anyone here done a cartridge fork upgrade?

Congrats on your patience waiting for the HO! Love mine (and the TRX is for sale) :) I wound the preload to one off max and it is bearable albeit still bouncy :D

Thanks for the cartridge fork info Sorkyah. Pattonme, please let me know your delivery address so I can send my forks to you - your website comes up as a "work in progress" and I can't find the company address etc. Thanks,

I just installed a Matris shock yesterday. And I'll be installing the Matris cartridges by next weekend. You might check them out. If the cartridges are half as good as the shock I'll be extremely happy with them!

Lordy, @gregjet's kit is still not delivered. I thought it was making good time there for a while. For non-north-america the kit is the only economically viable solution. Otherwise get the Matris F15 and take it to your tuner to have it reworked. There's a thread on my findings in the Suspension board.

Yep, it was f'n amazing. Bit like the 125 GPs of old... close, lots of passing and much cleaner than Moto3. :)
