    Hello guys and girls. Today I have begun the journey to rebuild my suspension. I thought about sending it off to race tech but they are closed right now so no quote. I know if money were no problem to just buy ohlins and be done but I'm not balling like that unless anybody has something for a reasonable price. I'm torn between racing and sport touring setup. I intend on building a turbo engine but it will still be a street bike. What are your experiences with suspension tuning?

    I've had excellent results with GP Tech in Auburn WA.
    They are racers and have supported the sport for years.
    I have 2 sets for my Gen II, a track day/street set and a lowered drag race/LSR set
    http://gpsuspension.com/
    Both ends for a little over $900.00.
    Not Ohlins quality of course but for a quarter of the cost of full Ohlins kit not bad.

    I'll look them up. I want a track setup but I ride mostly on the street. Not drag racing. There are videos of ghost rider on YouTube. He's on a turbo bike and it looks stock wheel base. That's what I'm going for. Just not sure if he's stretched out or stock.

    I have the Ohlins R&T setup. Certainly way better than stock but RaceTech or GPSuspension can deliver a nice aggressive yet streetable suspension for you.

    So Andy, what did you get in the end? I'm looking for the same thing. I've done Brembo brakes and the turbo is being fitted.
    Next thing is a correctly sprung shock with ride height adjustment and remote preload adj.

    What's the best value for money shock for a Gen 1? Uk/European answers are very welcome as shipping and addede tax make US stuff quite expensive

    If my bike doesn't sell this weekend. I'll be parting it out.

    Full Ohlins front and rear. It's coming off an 2011 Hayabusa. Set up for a 220lb rider.

    I haven't done he Ohlins shock but I sent mines off to Trac dynamics and had it revalved. Haven't hit the track with yet but I've been causing havoc on the streets. It hooked way better then I ever expected.

    Big E you have any pics of the front and rear set up?
