Ha ha, couldn't resist.
But don't springs wear out after a few years? Can't you get new springs? I often wonder if my suspension is set up right. I don't know how to adjust it properly tho.

After I got my FZ1 and started searching 'the net' for advice on suspension setup.. his name (specifically) and Traxxion essentially showed up first on everyones list.

When I spoke with him.. his basic approach was "I'll do the best possible, for whatever your budget & riding style is".. and he was insanely honest/up front.

In the case of FZ1's(again, frame of reference).. they will do anything from "send us the shocks, and give us your weight. we'll set them".. to replace cartridges in the front fork, revalve them, respring them, new oil and tune them.. and put a penske 8983(i forget the model) on the back.

I know they also revalve/respring some OEM rear shocks too .. so that is like 35% the cost of a high performance new rear shock

Anyway.. people seem to think their work is fantastic.. so I thought i'd pass along the info.

If you are satisfied with the compression and rebound damping of your OEM rear shock, then you can get away with an aftermarket spring that has a higher rate. Race Tech is the way to go. They have charts to recommend springs based on body weight.

Look at the Sport Rider (scroll down for "Tech How To") recommendations for setup and sag for your bike.

It will be difficult to get your front right until you get a stiffer spring on the rear to eliminate that extra sag. Once you get the rear spring swapped out, try to go on a ride with Stan. He'll get you dialed in. He's a big guy too so he'll know what you're dealing with.

EDIT: Also, johnnyspeed954 has a reputation for setting up great suspension--there is at least one testimonial thread here somewhere. I imagine if you visit his shop, he could get you set up correctly.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.
