Macrium Reflect won't let you only back up the MBR, but on restore it will ask you if you wish to restore the MBR from backup. One "trick" you can do is have a small partition for testing boot CD restore discs and for "dummy restore" just to restore the MBR.
There are dedicated MBR backup restore free utilities around. But most of them were either done in the days of Dos boot diskette or derived from them. Most of the time you can get them to work from a bootable USB key.
