Hi everyone ! New to the forum and gsxs 1000 . After offloading My 990 Duke been looking to buy new streetfighter for a few months . My priority was to buy s1000r but decided to go back to my roots and get another suzuki . GSXS was cheaper and insurance was 3 times less than bmw for me . On my way home manege to cover around 220 miles and was surprise how good on petrol this bike is , did 185 motorway miles and still had more than 2 litres left ( 120 on my duke if i was careful ) . Personally i would like to adjust rear suspension for me sits to low , anyone know is this possible with standard rear shock ?

Welcome to the forum and a great choice of bike. Yes they are very economical bikes and glad your enjoying it. Suspension I think is adequate for normal street riding and yes it's adjusteable to a degree, but make sure it's adjusted for sag and set up for you. I find for normal and some spirited riding it is fine, however the rear certainly isn't perfect. I am sure others that have changed their suspension will have information for you.
Welcome again mate

Welcome Aboard
As has been said. Set up the sag for your weight and if it's still a bit too low you can always take off a couple of turns of front preload.
