So the time is nearing, spoke with my dealer yesterday and he's saying the bikes will be on the showroom floors soon.

Which brings me to my question. I won't be able to demo one, I need a no b.s. opinion of the stock suspension for this bike. I'm not expecting phenomenal but that's not to say mediocre will make me happy.

Keep in mind my current ride is a Gixxer 750 '14. Group rides are rather (spirited) in pace :/

I realize the GSX 1K isn't for setting land speed records. But I do like those fast sweepers, and have access to them daily if I choose. Does the suspension need work?.

For those technically into suspension, I'm 210 lbs. with gear on.

Any other comments about the bikes performance wise are also welcome. Would love to hear what everyone thinks about there's so far.

Appreciate it guys and gals,
Let'er rip :D

I'm slightly heavier... and stock the ride quality is quite good. Absorbs pot holes really well but understeered like a mofo. I have changed my front to more preload (1 ring showing) and went 1 click soft rebound and 1 click soft compression. The rear I went 2 clicks more preload.
The result is night and day compared to stock, cornering is so effortless now and the overall ride quality isn't too bad either. I do intend to get it set up properly in the next couple of months or so.

Oh yeah, and sag is 25 r and 24 f

My dealer told me to put around 700 miles to let suspension settle in before making adjustments.
