Recommendations for suspension expert in south sydney

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by Felix, Jan 15, 2012.

  1. Hi All,

    I have a 2008 Honda CBR 1000rr Fireblade that I am doing a huge rebuild on.

    I wish to upgrade/tune the suspension depending on recommendation.

    Can anyone HIGHLY recommend a great suspension expert in the Southern Sydney region for this job ???

    I'd be really grateful for any advice.


  2. i have had many race bikes setup by teknik racing, found them great to communicate and do a great job.

    believe they were doing alot of work for team honda on their cbr superbikes this year.
  3. its a Honda - to have it handle better trade it in on a Yamaha ?:p
  4. The two places I would look based on my knowledge of them are RBimports/RBracing in Tarren Point and TrooperLu's garage in Moorebank. Both places know bikes backwards and are very professional shops.
  5. Hey there. Really appreciate the advice.

    I've been to a couple of places now and found out they send the bike to "someone" to get done. I don't see the point in taking the bike somewhere to have it sent somewhere else. I would much rather get the equipment/tuning recommendations from the tuner himself first hand.

    I've heard there's a really good suspension guy in Peakhurst who is really switched on with CBR's but do not have his name/company and cannot track him down to save my life.

    Do you know if RB do the suspension themselves ?


  6. Hey all. Thanks again for your help. I've dropped my shock and forks to Frank Pons for the treatment. I was really impressed with his customer service, information and communication/information. I'll keep you updated on the results.


  7. Another +1 for Trooper Lu, had mine done there
  8. A bit too late, I was going to suggest having a chat to James at zenodamper (http://www.zenodamper.com.au/contact.htm)

    I believe he's done a fair bit of work on 08+ cbr 1000s

    Highly recommended, he rebuilt and setup my 929 suspension very well.
