Hello, I'm lost on what to look for or what I need to upgrade my suspension. I am just looking for comfortable riding with the suspension and no race modifications. I have seen everyone say "just put GSXR forks on" but I feel as it's way to much work and money then what I'm seeking. (Although the GSXR forks look 10x better)
So I want to keep the front forks but upgrade the springs in them. What are the right ones for me? I am 5'10 and weigh about 195. As far as the rear, what is a decent shock that requires preferably no modifications to install and is right for my weight and height, aswell as offering a comfortable ride. (Also not going to put a hole in my wallet)
Thank you and sorry for sounding like a complete noob on this, I just need more clarity on what is good for what

I'm about the same weight and height.
I dropped a set of Ricor Intiminator things down the forks along with some slightly heavier fork oil.
I keep saying I'll get springs someday, but still have not, so maybe I can live with it even longer.

I did spend some money on a new Elko 2 way adjustable rear shock when they had a group buy here years ago.
I was able to swap it with the OEM shock fairly easily.
Not a specialist operation and no cutting or bashing involved.

I've had my k3 naked since 2008 and the suspension feels sorted enough that I have no complaints.
Slightly less forward lean than the S and don't know if that would be a major distinction.

Only other mod is a custom seat with a gel insert that's comfier than the stock seat.
Been completely satisfied with several sets of Continental Road Attack 2 tires.
That's all I have felt that needed upgrades or consumables.
