    Hi all, I'm new to the forum and did have a quick search but didn't find an answer to my question. I have had my bike a whole year now and the guy I bought it off was taller and heavier than I and he did mention he had had the suspension set up for track days. I loved it to start with as it...

    Hi all; I am looking for an aftermarket shock for my 2008 ZX6R. Prices for new decent shocks are murderous, so if anyone has a second-hand one they would like to part with - let me know what you have and how much you want for it. Cheers!

    1. 05/06 forks will be a direct swap onto an 07/08 model, correct? 2. Penske rear shock set up for an 05/06 will also be a direct swap or will it require a new lower clevis? Not sure if the lower linkage shares the same dimensions across these two generations. Thanks!

    Hey guys. How do you guys typically like to set up your SFF-BP for aggressive mountain runs? I plan to take another trip up to blood mountain soon and maybe ride up 129 into Tennessee and NC and just wanted to see what you guys have typically had success with. Also, is there a write up somewhere...

    So, a couple of days ago I decide to dive into some deep research over setting up my suspension. The whole reason of why came up after riding with some more experienced guys last week. Those guys were tearing these corners up and I was struggling plus I didn't feel confident while making such...

    Okay so I bought a 1996 zx6r f3 as my first sports bike, been riding it everyday for about 4 months now and I wanted to start tuning it up. That is when I realized that the shot was pretty much just riding on the spring so to speak. The accumulator is empty. Specs say it's supposed to have 142...

    As the title says I'm looking for a straight set of forks for an '06 636. I want a set in good condition or just the inner chrome sleeve. Mine have surface rust and pits and keep tearing up my seals. Thanks

    I have a 2013 636 and I've read some about raising the rear helping a lot. I was curious if any of you have experience in this area. If you bought purpose made parts or what ever you can make work from a hardware store. I've got a couple months before I will be reunited with my baby and start...

    I'm debating on swapping out the fork springs in my 2003 Kawasaki ZX6RR. My question is: Is the swap worth it for me at this point? I've been riding for a few solid years (~10k miles) and am planning my first trackday this summer. So far, I've done one riding school on a smaller track. Racetech...

    HEY. total FNG here, my 2014 is coming out of the crate in a couple weeks. I'm curious as to what the factory settings are like out of the box. I understand they're set up for an occasional rider on the back and may need to be adjusted to my height/weight. I'm sure i'll be able to go over all...

    So as some of you may know from a recent post of mine, I just purchased a set of forks that were built with Penske 20mm internals and just refreshed with springs for my weight, new oil and new seals. I was lucky enough to get these at a great price from a friend off an ex AMA racers bike...

    In search of a nice aftermarket rear shock for my 2006. Looking at Penske, Ohlins, and Elka, but am open to suggestions if someone knows of another good brand.

    I as the title suggests I need some help with my 2003 zx6r rear shock. It's harder than Ross Kemp on viagra, and i want to replace it. I've had it proffesionally set up to my weight but it has made 0.99% difference. Apparently you can put in an 07 zx6r shock into my bike provided that i have...

    I had a set of Ohlins 25mm cartridges installed several track days back, and Performance Cycleworx did a full adjustment front and rear. Made the bike noticeably more stable when shifting body weight or shifting in the corners. Didn't anticipate changes to the rear, but now have a chance to get...

    I recently purchased my 2003 ZX636 and had a few questions regarding the suspension. I've been riding it for about two weeks now and never really noticed any suspension issues, but today I decided to ride it much harder than before and noticed my rear tire seemed to get a bit soft when...

    I've got a P8F 2008 race bike, and I can't get it to handle. It's SO stiff. Main problem is the rear. Front I can adjust out, but the rear just wont work. I've got an Ohlins remote reservoir shock, standard linkage, and a 90 (9.0) spring. Ohlins assure me I should use a 95 (9.5) but we took that...
