Secret stays within Suzuki...BUT I have a quick and easy, not really cheap, solution to suspension upgrades/issue prevention. MATRIS!!!! Matris's Steering dampers, shocks, and forks. Their is NOT ONE BETTER product in its classification class. Im glad to see they have finally been imported to North America now.

Pretty hard to give suspension tips for we do not know the weight of the rider(s), height, how they ride, where they will be riding & how they take the bends of more so if they are on for Track Days or actual competition where a true suspension man is needed.

Most do now know that Compression, Pre=Load, or Rebound it or even where it is on their bike front or back to some Suzy bikes do not have it on the front. Besides often a rear shock will have to replace the stock one, to special work to be done by a firm accustom to rebuilding stock forks.

The above may sound usless & it is if someone errors part way along. My suggestion is to keep you eyes on some of the m/c mags when they start to have an article or two on the above matter. RoadRacing World is a prize one for some of the best tuning methods applied to long distant races & even more.

Obviously the reason a good road racer has a tuner is because he runs thing in general along with the assistance of a suspension specialist so the type of course, the weather conditons & such drop into the hands of the suspension man along with the engine tuner.
