Thank you all.

great to see that the Katana has its place here along with the other Gsxs .i have my Katana for over a year now , and parts unique to the bike are expensive. i usually have to do a search for Gsxs parts to work.i had to order the Kech for the gsxs , and im going to have to find a place to fit the remote rsev

So is the stock shock on the Katana the same brutal beast of a shock on the GSX-S? If it it, you are going to love the K-Tech. (y)

YES it the worst suspension bike i ever ridden , that and the gsxs 750 i sold to get this Katana

i have been riding for 36 years , the bike is really comphy one of the most comfortable bikes i have ridden.but its also the worst corner speed handling bike i had. the shock and tires .do no justice to the Gsxs .

You are absolutely right about that. New shock, and I changed out my tires atabout 6K for Mich R5s. Both made huge improvements. The shock in comfort and handling the bumps, and the tires in all around turn in effort and confidence in sticking to the road.
