A few questions 600, 750 which is better? Is the 750 stiffer? Which has more adjustment? Is any year better than another? I know 97-99 will fit, but which is best for this frankenstein project? Thanks. Zip
Oooh, if I'ma guru does that mean I get to talk like \"Apu\" on \"The Simpsons\"? Okay, imagine that's what I sound like.\" \" said:PS: I can die happy now. I got a reply from the SV guru Mr bill Metz.
Yikes! For a number of reasons.\" \" said:been racing on ming for 2 years now and havent had any major issues. I've been ablt to turn 1:19 at loudon on a stock bike + an M4 pipe. Forks are stock also with 30 weight oil in them (rediently added 25mm preload), and here are the kickers,
I weigh 215 in race gear
others have gone faster with the stock shock
Only lately has it given me any issues, 90 degree heat and the end of a GTL (30 min) race had a bit of fade, otherwise its been fine, its one of the things that Suz did right, yea, there is no adjustment, but its real close to wht you need to ride fast. Just crank the preload.
Wish I could tell you, I'll see if Zoran remembers. IIRC there's no difference between the 96-99 GSXR 600 & 750 shocks- they used exactly the same units on both bikes and made up the difference in leverage ratios. That, or they're so close that there's no functional difference. Again, I'll se what Z-man has to say and get back to you.\" \" said:BIll, you said you weigh 155, and used the stock gixxer spring & valving? Which model and year gixxer unit is it?
