Elka Suspension / Opinions / Experience - December 3, 2010, 12:14 AM

Hey does anybody have any experience with ELKA Suspension? I have a line on a prototype for a great money deal, looks to be a 3-way unit, but it was never a production model. It's for my 07 CBR It was rebuilt by ELKA in 06/07. As always, anything is better than stock, but how would this compare?

I've never used a Elka, but a lot of RC guys used them when Penske prices were insane.
Frankly, I've heard nothing but good things about them.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

Junk. Better than stock, but only because it's adjustable. I put one on my 09 GSXR and promptly sold it and picked up a TTX.

If you're racing, I wouldn't suggest it. Street would be fine.

That dude was destroying Am grids last year on Craigs old bike. Running 16's at Summit.

Kinda seems like enough evidence to me.
