I went with a Nitron unit with remote reservoir for compression adjustment. Very happy with the results. Getting it set for my weight and riding style obviously made the biggest difference, but even the difference a single click of adjustment makes is far more noticeable. Very happy. I also splurged and got Nitron internals installed into my forks so everything is now perfect. Damping is out of this world and she holds a line like she's on a Scalextric track.
Installation was simple as well, as was getting my rider sag setup.
You can order direct from the Nitron site too.
One thing I would suggest - If you carry a pillion, getting the remote preload adjuster is very handy. I used to commute with the missus on the back of my 'Busa and being able to set it for that, then on the weekend a couple of quick turns to get it set back for me alone was a nice convenience. Didn't get it for the GSXS as she's got her own wheels now. I've set it once for the road, will most likely set it differently for the track, and that is the only time I'll need to fiddle with that. Well, apart from over the Christmas break when I try to put on 10kg.
I got the nitron ntr1 and it was a doddle to fit. Had it on an abba superbike stand and undone the torsion linkage before lifting the back wheel up to the undertray. Then you can undo the shock bolts and it drops out ready for the new one to go in.
All these posts I am putting about Nitron, I should be on their payroll! :-D
Is there any easy fix for the jerky throttle that the Bike have.
If i look into other topics it looks like its only a fix for bikes before 2018.
My problem is that when i drive in a town at 50km/t its keeps going from 47-52 all the time so its not at smooth cruise.
Attached is gearing chart that comes with the Vortex rear sprockets. You can see that stock gearing is 2.59 with our 17/44t sprockets.
Most go to 16/46 resulting in 2.88
I ended up with 16/45 giving me 2.81 so not a huge difference, will still do the job of giving better acceleration but not...
On the front of my GSXSF on each side of the headlight there are small side/parking lights; can these be re-wired to become the front blinkers to get rid of the dopey blinkers poking out of the fairing? On most sports bikes including my GSXR the front blinkers are in the back of the mirrors...
