Race Tech Suspension

I have spoken with race tech over the last couple days, and they are looking for a CBR250R to R&D suspension upgrades on. They need the bike for three weeks, and offer a 40% discount on parts and labor for what ever level of suspension you want. If anyone is interested, they have to book the 3 weeks. Call race tech X107, Christie Gunter for info from the company.

added: they are in Carona, Ca.

Have you ridden much more with the new setup. Do you still think they're worthwhile?
Just spoke to shock treatment (Australian racetech distributor) can get the internals for around $350 AUD. Can get a YSS Rear shock for around $450 AUD. Do you remember how much you paid? I know you used your bike for r&d but trying to get an idea on price.
I don't want to poach woolfs thread, but I can answer some questions. Your looking at around five hundred (USD) to have them install the components in the fork, $135 is labor. I am competent mechanically, but they really know what they need to do and they even honed the fork tubes. The shock is $1300 and you must get the remote reservoir (included) if you have ABS.

Here is what I think of the upgrade:

I absolutely love the upgrade and consider it criminal to let any rider, especially a new rider, leave the store on a bike that isn't sprung for them. If you ever wonder how a motorcycle is supposed to handle, get a properly setup suspension. I weigh 255 pounds so this was a necessary upgrade for safety. Lighter riders may be ok with the stock suspension.

The only problem is now I have to buy a Race Tech suspension for my next MC. I don't think I will be able to tolerate poor suspension again.
Will definitely be getting the front end done at Shock Treatment with Racetech internals. But $1300 for a rear shock is way out of my league for this bike, though I'd love to. I'll have a talk to shock treatment again on Monday and see what options and prices they can come up with. Be it with a Racetech rear or some other brand.
