    Default Need Suspension work

    I've received a few GP Suspension recommendations, but it looks as though they're only in OR.

    What is a good alternative up here (my bike is in Redmond).

    I had my suspension set at a track day where I was told that the front springs were soft, and would need replacing if I were planning on racing (which I am).

    Also, what attracted me to GP Suspension is they mechanically test them (with machines and stuff ). This is of interest because the front forks I have on my bike right now are 2nd hand, and I have only the world of the seller that they're good (but I think they may be the source of some of my bikes' instability). Also, I installed them myself, and I'm no mechanic, just have a manual and a wrench.

    Lastly, are they able to repair suspension? The original forks on the bike got into a wreck, and one is surely bent slightly (maybe 2-3%), and the other maybe. It would be great if I could get those repaired and either sell, or keep as a second set

    Bike: 05 GSXR 750

    So dave does the ACTUAL work within Larry's forks?? Hmmm..not what i heard. NOT knocking the guy, he is huge part of Larry's team and everyone i know likes his work, but im not sure he does the internals/valving work for Larry.


    +4 for Barry Wressell...the guy is fat, pale and rarely answers the phone but his work is the best!

    edit: just read and again, sorry if came off rude, wasn't intended but i know Dave doesnt do the actual forks/shocks for Larry. I do know barry does a LOT of AMA, OMRRA, WMRRA, CMRA, AFM, MRA and WERA forks/shocks and thats just our EDR Customers/racers he has done for. We have over 100 racers racing this season in all those clubs and almost all are done by Barry @KFG (or Dave @GP Suspension) TOP guys imo

    Eric, though I haven't met you in person, by reading your posts I have come to expect a little fire from you. I didn't take offence

    Barry is great at what he does as well. I am just giving a recommendation to Dave because he did good work on a few bikes that I know of...
