Exclamation Suspension Tuning

  • Are you still riding on the stock suspension settings from when you purchased your bike?
  • Is your bike's suspension not performing the way you think it should?
  • Are you confused by the complicated adjustability of modern sportbike suspensions?
  • Are you a track rider or aspiring racer that wants your suspension to perform at it's best?

If you answered YES to any of the questions above, then Sportbike Suspension Tuning has the solutions!

Not currently. It's something we are looking into. My partner is currently an instructor with Fastrackriders.

Down for that! I usually get it done at the track for about $50. it's cool becaue I can go test out and come back and tell them how it feels and they'll fine tune. Always an amazing difference after it's all set up!

Have you done or ever had anything done to the suspension so far? Where are you riding it? Street? Track? We just did a '13 R1 yesterday, with fantastic results.

Who here on the forum has given me the opportunity to tune your suspension? And, how did you like the results?

Springs show as delivered today, as soon as funds clear up (been spending too much lately) I'll get the bike down to you so you can work some magic on it.

I have an adjustable linkage rod as well as shims for the rear. Hoping to get it to turn in more like the R6 did.
