Hey folks - 05 SM here. Haven't messed with the suspension at all and thought I might need to address it a bit. I'm barely 160 geared so don't know if i need to do anything at all. My riding style is (all street) a bit spirited at times - little hard on the front brake, etc.....I've had nothing but good input from you guys and the site since I've joined so thanks in advance.

you're actually not that far off as far as weight and spring rates go. To double check, hop on over to racetech.com and do the spring calculator. They base it off your weight and riding style and give you oem specs and recommendations. At the very least having the right spring for your weight and correct weight fork oil will help your ride out. Having the front and rear re-valved by a reputable shop/company is the best way to get the most out of your ride... but you end up paying more.

I had my front and rear shop set up by eddie sisneros from OTD cycles in Colorado. Sent them out, had them back in about a week. He put in the right springs and oil and reworked the oem valving for sm riding/racing. Bike is a different animal now...

good man! thank you very much - mind me asking what the cost was for Eddie to set it up?

Can't find my manual - what is the stock oil? 15wt?

In the ~$500 territory for full rebuilds of the front and rear, that's with parts, labor, return shipping, etc.. He spent years race prepping and running drz's. He knows his suzuks!

Make sure you do some price matching. The thumpertalk.com online store lists front fork springs for around $98, same price for a rear spring. Unless you ask them to price match and have the info. handy so they can reference, you will likely pay retail for the springs.
