Have put in an order for the springs and valves, but they haven't got back to me on postage, also trying a local, no word from him either.Race tech makes a shock that replaces the entire stock unit and makes it their gs-3. The also have internals for the fork.
I think mine was basic, ride height and remote tank $1099 before discount. I don't know if they will charge for shipping, but it is ups ground so it can't be that much.Have put in an order for the springs and valves, but they haven't got back to me on postage, also trying a local, no word from him either.
How much was the price for the basic gs-3, what options did you get and how much.
Thanks for the info, but yeah a bit rich for my blood too. Especially as the rear feels like it's doing the job for me, the front on the other hand does not instil the new rider with confidence.(lucky for me that's the cheaper fix)I think mine was basic, ride height and remote tank $1099 before discount.

I weigh 90kg ad have not found the right setting yet for the rear shock. I personally think it is more a damping issue though. I find that going over a bump I feel the bike thudding into my arse and then dropping down. I would prefer a slightly faster moving shock (I hope you understand what I am saying even if I have not used the right technical terms).
In the end I have splashed out on a YSS shock from TYGA performance for the CBR250R. When it arrives and I fit it and set it up, then I will post my opinion.
I too, was being bounced off the seat when going over bumps. The rear shock was set at the factory at level 2 and i weigh in at 220 lbs. I got the shock up to level 5 and the ride difference was impressive in a good way.
I found the following links/articles to be helpful.
It decreased the distance the shock had to travel to absorb the bumps which resulted in a much smoother ride over the bumps I normally encounter. So in a word Yes. Now when going over the bad areas that i tend to have to frequent the bike has become much more tolerable.. You should set the rear shock adjustment based on the rider weight. (SAG) I used the articles I liked to for rule of thumb measurements and went from there.So cranking the ride height higher made the ride softer?
