SUZUKI TESTIMONIALS

Suzuki GSXR750 L1
Hi John, I just wanted to drop you a line to say just how happy I am with what you did with my suspension set up. I have now ridden her in all conditions on all types of road, so feel I can confidently say what you did suits me perfectly. The difference is absolutely amazing. She feels like a completely different bike. Every biker I speak to gets bored by me going on about getting their suspension set up for them. Obviously I recommend you very highly indeed. Kind regards, Andy

Suzuki GSXR600 2014
Hi there John, So, I've just returned from a 3 hour ride on the gixxer this afternoon,  I decided to go for an extended ride to test it on all sorts of roads and I have to say the bike is behaving very differently than before you adjusted the suspension!  The major difference is that it feels INCREDIBLY planted in the corners, both slow (say for example fairly acute corners in built up areas) and fast (such as A roads).  The result of this is that I feel more confident at increasing angles of lean and at higher speeds in corners I've ridden countless times before but just didn't 'get'.  Slow control in traffic is brill because of a) more confidence stopping the bike with the reduced seat height and b) able to brake harder and feel more in control because of a).  The suspension doesn't feel as hard as before when going over white lines or speed bumps and the turning in has definitely improved.  I'm massively pleased! I'm hugely excited about this forthcoming biking season now. I've just done around 100 miles this afternoon and the bike behaved like a gentleman.  Thanks again for all you've done! Warmest regards, Nicola.

Evening John, Well what can I say; you said 'I would love you forever' and you weren't wrong. The adjustments you have made to the bike are unreal. I went to my favourite road today as you recommended. I did it once and had to go do a re-run just to be sure. Your adjustments have totally balanced the bike. It feels smoother and more stable into bends and when braking. It just seems like it is guiding itself around the corners. It's lost that twitchy and stiffness. I don't have a clue what you did or how you even know what to do but, what ever it was, it works. You came highly recommended to us and we will certainly highly recommend you on to our friends. Thank you so much. Take care and kindest regards Ang

Hi John, I cant believe the job you have done, as soon as I pulled out of the car park I could feel the difference and once I got on the open road the bike felt more planted and the front didn't nose dive, when I pulled the front brakes on. Thanks again John I will be back again if I ever change my bike. Hope my friends have sent you good feed back because they were all blown away with the way their bikes handled. BIG BIG THANKS AGAIN I love my bike even more I just hope we get some nice weather; I will pass the word around. Regards Brian.

K8 GSXR 1000 (On line set-up)
Hello John. Thanks for the set up. I took the bike out today and there is a massive improvement
After a couple of hours I had got my head around the new settings and started to enjoy. I took the bike to Helmsey and up and down the Helmsley to Stokesley road B1257. The bike corners so smoothly it seams to iron out the bends and I found myself going quicker and gaining more confidence I ended up doing 3 runs there and back with a big grin on my face. The bike overall has never felt like mine but now I am very happy with it we have finally got on with each other. Thanks again. Mike

2009 GSXR750
Hi John, I just wanted to let you know what a difference your set-up has made, I could tell as soon as I left your estate, It has made it feel a lot more planted through the corners at speed and under braking as well as making slow speed cornering more comfortable and easier to control. It feels like a complete different bike and all for the better. Thanks again, James

Hi John, Well, what a difference in the handling since you performed your magic on my suspension at Woolley Edge Services this morning !  The bike now feels how I think it should feel and handle, even on a straight run on the motorway. The real difference for me was where I came off the M1 at jct21 for Leicester, the road sweeps round to the left and normally I get a small amount of wobble but not this time, the next test that proves the adjustments you made was just around the next sharp sweeping left curve onto the Leicester ring road, not a wobble in sight, the gixxer just glided around as smooth as a baby's bum and within a few miles a left at the lights and again nice n smooth, no battling with the bike to get her to go where I want her to. Managed a couple of mini-roundabouts both left and right turns and a few sets of lights with 90 degree turns both left and right in succession and she felt planted and directional if that makes sense, basically just right and how I want it to feel, inspiring confidence is probably the phrase I am looking for. I cannot thank you enough for today, highly recommended. Just wish I could have got to you sooner! Warmest wishes and again, massive thanks for your expertise! Darron

Thanks John, The difference was noticed immediately, just riding down your road.  It feels taut and rides like it is on rails!  I wasn’t aware of any vagueness before but I am now in retrospect.  Took it out into Lincolnshire and the ride is much firmer but without feeling harsh.  Thanks Paul

Hi John, Bike is much better to ride. It rides over bumps better and feels much more planted in the corners. The edginess it had when entering corners has gone and it doesn't fall into bends as it did before. Not sure I would know what to change to make more improvements, for now it seems perfect. Top job. Thanks Adrian.

Hi John, My bike felt much firmer at the back and certainly did seem much more planted under power out of corners. Also the overall ride back over the uneven surfaces seemed much smoother than before. I hope the rain stays away a bit more so I can give it more testing!  Thanks again Jon

Hi, went out Sunday and bike was amazing, felt planted to the ground, not a girly rider so do ride aggressively lot of the time but now confidence has increased more so, thanks to listening to what I was saying and not just setting the bike to what is suggested but what I needed. Amanda

Suzuki SV1000
Dear John, I'd just like to thank you for the transformation in the steering, comfort and general handling of my 2003 Suzuki SV 1000. Having had three Fireblades and an R1 in the past, I missed the sports bike sophistication of the suspension when I bought the SV. I loved the SV immediately but I was disappointed with it's road-holding and comfort. The forks were like a pneumatic drill and the rear shocker was harsh yet the bike wallowed and weaved on long bumpy bends, and smooth ones too. The short time in your hands and at such a bargain price was well worth it. It now is far more comfortable both back and front, the steering is quicker and more precise, and long fast sweepers are perfectly stable and balanced. My SV is now a pleasure to ride, and that's what biking is all about. Many thanks for this. Kind Regards, Steve Lally

Suzuki GSXR1000 K5
Hello John, I would just like to say how fantastic my bike is now that you tuned the suspension, before I was fighting with the bike through corners, now its an absolute joy to throw around bends!  I'm really over the moon with the set up, the bike is now far more exciting to ride as I can now push the front into corners and not fear it skipping underneath me.
Another bonus is that with the suspension now softer the bike is lower therefore aiding manoeuvrability on the bike with my 5 foot 6 inch frame! A huge thank you to you John, the best money I have ever spent!
Thank you again, Best Regards Donna Wood

Hi John, Well where to begin!!!
My bike always felt really hard on the suspension and seemed to try and buck me out of the seat every chance it got!!!...But now, well, lets just say it’s sorted!!! bike now feels much smoother on all road types (we went on many different ones today), it actually feels like I can 'feel' the road under me!!, feel much happier with the front, seem to have more feed back from it and feel more confident with it, turning into bends are better. The rear seemed to give more feed back and felt much better on entry and exit of bends, soaks up bumps better and gives a smoother ride. Having never had a bikes suspension set up before I can honestly say that it has made a big difference to the way it now handles...for the better!! Many thanks for your time and enjoyed chatting to you, will certainly recommend you to all other bikers I chat to. Many Thanks. Mike (a happy GSXR1000 owner)

Hi John, You carried out the set up at Hein Gerrick in Leeds and I thought for the money not to expect any real difference I couldn't have been any more incorrect as soon as I left I could feel an improvement in feel and handling but as I live only a few miles away thought would wait until I clocked some distance to fully see how it felt.
Well have just come back from touring the Mosel Valley in Germany and have been far from disappointed the bike is transformed and feels so much better I still can’t believe what a great change it made even in wet conditions handles like its on tracks.
I am so impressed and also advised my uncle to get his 650 Bandit set up by you before we went and he has done nothing but sing your praises all holiday thanks again and I will never hesitate to use you again or advise anyone I know to use you too Thanks again, Craig

Have noticed the suspension working better now though can actually feel it working. Also noticed my wrists don’t ache as much now, I didn’t complain all day Sunday. Guess with you softening up the front end I don’t get as much impact from the road direct onto my wrists anymore. Dave

Hi John. Had my first "proper" ride out today & can only say what I felt when I took the bike out after the tweaks you did at Sherburn, Brilliant just wants to tip in & hold a line so much easier than before. I can only say my GSXR 750 now handles like I thought it should. Cheers Steve

Hi John, Just a note to let you know after you did your stuff the bike feels so much more planted! It turns in quicker and the rear doesn't step out when you hit the gas coming out of bends. All in all I'm really pleased with what you did, thanks very much. I'll be bringing my track bike over soon. Cheers, Steve in York -
