    gsx 1400 Phil nothing wrong with it but been advised that if i get it set up properly to my weight i should see a big difference.

    At the moment its not very inspiring going into corners.

    I changed the fork oil few months ago and put everything back to standard setting and its shocking. Got about 2 inches of sag in the forks.

    I think it was £260, I had ultramax fork install, oil and seals, new rear spring and the bike set up with correct sag etc.
    Made a load off difference
