Factory Connection or MB1?

Recommended Posts

Going to get my suspension done but am stuck deciding between these two. MB1 is a new suspension company run by Mike Battista, a former Team Honda Factory suspension tech who worked on RC and K-dubs bikes. He also worked for Showa's R&D department for years. He is about $100 cheaper than FC but I don't know if that includes everything FC is promising, such as porting the pistons, new ICS springs and oil lock collars. Any advice from you guys???????????

I'm sure both will be fine.

May be FC have more people that can work on your suspension so the turn-around time is much faster. Mine was a one day job.

Tough decision... :cry:

A local friend of mine owns the company that makes Ti parts and springs for Team Honda and others. RC had his company name on his fender last year. We were talking yesterday, and he told me that if you buy this years Showa "A Racer Kit", you are basically getting the same suspension RC ran last year, including Ti springs.

Just another idea for you...

I don't remember who (although I talked to him on the phone) but it's fantastic!

Who did yours and have you ridden with the new boingers? What do you think?
