Matris - front suspension kit 800gs
This is my first post on this forum, I would like to say "Hello!" for everyone.
I'm 800gs '11 owner and I thinks about some improvements.
After some offroad ventures, I thinks about suspension improvement, especially about front suspension modifications.
I know that we have many treads about front suspension, but I would like to focus on the Matris kit.
We discussed about Ohlins kit, about Bitubo kit, other but nothing about Matris kit.
For people don't know this Italian brand:
Kit for 800gs:
From my short review:
+ cheaper than Ohlins
+ full adjustable
+ compatible with standard BMW springs
+ look good ;-)
- more expensive than Bitubo kit
- reduce travel 5mm (native 230mm, with kit 225mm) - info base on the product manual
- I can't find out users feedback
If you have any experiences with this product, I will be grateful.
Thanks in advance for you feedback.

I have them and I am really happy with them,
first I had progressiv wilbers into the front,
that was better than stock but not like I wanted it,
Ohlins to expencive, Bitubo many problems,
so Matrix dit the thing.
But now I have seen new Nuda and I wonder if the size off the forks is the same as the f800,
they are showa's and maybe cheaper.
