track days on the gsx-s1000
few photos from my 2 days at chuckwalla valley raceway last week. first time at the track on the bike, and had only ridden it a handful of times before spinning some new tires on and seeing what it can do. overall very impressed and happy with the bike, on the road, and on the track.
for those interested, i mounted pirelli diablo rosso corsas, 190/55 rear profile. tires were great, highly recommend. usually wear dunlop q3s but wanted to try the pirellis and think i'll be going with them from now on when i'm headed to the track but want to ride the same tire on the street.
as for suspension, here are the changes i made:
Preload as is
Compression 4 clicks out from max stiffness
Rebound 2 clicks out from max stiffness
No change to rebound
bike was on rails. have no immediate plans to upgrade any performance parts, the suzuki is more than capable for most if not all of us mortals. i'm a "slow A group/fast B group" pace rider, and for those speeds, the bike is absolutely fine in its stock form. my 2 cents.
