Darren’s Yamaha R1

Darren’s Yamaha R1 can often be found being put through its paces at track days all around the UK.
It is a relatively stock bike in track fairings, other than the suspension it is fitted with a full MHP exhaust system, Dynojet PC5, Translogic Quickshifter and Geomoto rearsets.
As you can see from the photos, it is equipped with Ohlins Road and Track FGRT forks and a Ohlins TTXGP rear shock.

Not all budgets run to this level, which is why we use this bike to develop our own suspension products to the highest level possible, for a fraction of the cost to replace forks and shocks.

Darren likes to ride as often as possible because

        It is an adrenaline fuelled passion that keeps you feeling young

        Developing and testing new parts ourselves

        Evaluating and analysing different parts and setup

        Show customers we can do it, not just talk about it

    Feel free to approach any member of the MCT Team at track days and other events for advice or just to say hello!

    Please note we do not offer a track side setup service as the benefits are limited and reduces test time on track!
