I have a GSXR 1000 K9.  Will dropping the yoke 10mm down the forks make much difference to my riding or handling ?  I have bst wheels fitted, the difference is out standing.

Cbr 600 jellymould preload

Hey everyone I am taking my mrs pillion on my 1990 cbr600 quite a lot and realized that the bike was set up by the previous owner for his frame (tiny compared to me) Me and my partner both weigh around 12-12.5 stone and I know this is relatively close to the recommended max weight limit (think about 25lbs off it)So I am going to raise the pre load to its max as I spend about 70% of the time taking her pillion it seems to make sense to leave it set up for both of us.How exactly do I do ...

Stuck Suspension - ST Sprint

Rear Suspension bush has excessive play

Hi all,my k2 SV650s has just failed it's MOT due to this excessive play. The guy at the garage was rubbish and had no useful information except 'it may be just a nut that need tightening'. My question is this - is this likely to be an issue I can solve myself with a tool kit and day off, or do I need to book it in and spend?the handling has not felt particularly different since I bought it, though it's done 12k this year and it's my first bike so I have no comparison!Any advice gratefully received :-)
