THAT’S THE SUSPENSION SERIOUSLY SORTED, NOW ON WITH THE REST OF THE GRAND PLAN...
Sadly, the answer to many of the emails we’ve received is: No, she doesn’t come as part of the prize..
That’s a proper job done and dusted. The Suzuki GSR750 competition bike has returned from a serious fettling at Maxton Suspension (www.maxtonsuspension.co.uk), and even running it in and out of the van, the improvements are immediately clear.
Richard Adams from Maxton wasn’t overly impressed with what he saw in the stock units. We’ve always said that the GSR just needs to regain some control of its suspension – and the Maxton fettle has done exactly this. As the units are unadjustable in stock form, there’s no choice but to crack everything open and have a look at what’s inside – but it ain’t pretty...
At the front Richard installed a new set of springs and a slurp of fresh oil, while the rear shock got a new spring and a revalve. OK, we’re not going to be lining up on a BSB grid with this relatively minor change, but we’re expecting this update alone to have a massive effect. Who says unadjustable suspension can’t be adjusted to suit...
Maxton will charge you around £180 for a similar job, and we can’t recommend this enough. It’s such a small outlay given the results it produces – you’d be daft not to.
The massive box of Rizoma goodies is well on its way to being fitted, and we’re busy sourcing some go faster bits – although we’re encountering some problems here. Not even Yoshimura do a full system for this bike, so we’re researching whether a GSX-R750 system could go on. There may be some clearance issues with the radiator so we’ll wait and see.
In the meantime, we’ve got a Remus pipe on order while we wait for a cracking new Yoshimura exhaust to wing its way over from Japan. What with this and a Bazzaz traction control system, it’s going to properly rock!
