just wanted to thank you for setting up the suspension on my bike. Feels a lot
better now, the bumps can hardly be felt now but the most improvement I have
noticed is the corners feels a lot more secure. Didn’t realise the suspension
had such an impact on ride quality. Thanks again Imran
the bike is handling very well and is confidence inspiring since you
tweaked my set up. She turns in great now and
once I had scrubbed my new tyres in I found a lot more enjoyment riding her.
I really enjoyed talking to you and would have
no hesitation whatsoever
in recommending you to other riders. Best £30 I have
spent in a long time.
again for your help, Regards, Ian.

want to say a big thanks to John, I didn't think I would ever get on with my
bike and was at my wits end, new tyres tried setting up the suspension all
without much joy the handling was terrible!! Then I thought one last chance and
I rang John on the slight chance it may make some difference, how naive was I.
Smiling from ear to ear after John had worked his magic I went for a superb
ride and won't be looking back. Highly recommended and so cheap, a guy who really cares about what he does.

John. Just wanted to say what a difference! It's literally transformed the bike
for the better. The ride quality is vastly improved, I've lost all the problems
I had at mid lean/corner and I have ZERO stability issues. Thanks again
for the help. Anthony

Hi John, First of all thank you very much for your
prompt reply. I have incorporated your recommended settings straight away.
Honestly speaking, you should have seen the grin on my face when I rode to work
this morning :)
I have not anticipated that it would
be that big of a difference after just one ride! The bike is now planted.
Although I have read a number of
technical books regarding motorcycle suspension my conclusion is that is
definitely more of an art than a science.
All in all, definitely the best money I have
spent on this bike so far. Once again, thanks for sorting things out! Best
Honda CBR600RR 2009
John, Well what can I say? I wasn’t expecting a big difference but WOW I got
it. Perfect John. Thank you. It held corners perfectly and my knee finally went
down. I try heading home but for some reason it wants to keep turning corners.
Since you set my suspension on my sp2 it has transformed the handling from
being twitchy to now being planted, feels like a new bike. Many thanks Geoff
I came to you with my Black CBR Fireblade and I'm not really not sure what to
put but oh my god the bike is like a different bike into the corners, I’ll be
honest after traveling back to Sheffield I came off at junc 30 M1 and I did
about 20 laps of the roundabout and I couldn't believe how it went around after
you had set it up, and I’ve been on it a couple of times since and all I can
say is WOW cheers, regards Andy

I have put the settings on and went for a 100 mile ride on Sunday. The bike was
much better! Most noticeable on the rear.
Hi John, Just
a quick e-mail to say thank you for the superb set up on my Honda VTR. The
progressive springs you fitted together with the adjustments made to the front
and rear suspension have transformed the bike and improved my confidence 100%.
The trip to Assen was superb and the bike handled all situations like a
dream. I have recommended your set up service to many mates and will continue
to do so. Thanks again John. Regards Tim.

Hi John, What a turnaround!
The bike now handles as I’d expect it to, it no longer loses its composure on
mid corner bumps and I’m not sat on a pogo stick on bumpy roads. I have
done 220 miles around the lakes and York moors today and didn’t feel that the
bike was overwhelmed once and we were making some good progress early morning
when the roads were quiet.
must be the best money I’ve ever spent on a motorcycle! Once again many thanks
for sorting out what was a pig of a bike to ride and making it "sing"
once again. Regards Dan
Honda CBR600F 2011
April 2011 I bought a CBR600F, compared to my previous bike it felt light and
quick to change direction on the road, but after 12 months I started to realise
all was not well. Roundabouts, instead of holding the line I was constantly
being pulled wide, corners where the same, the bike just didn’t want to hold
the line and to get round corners I was always having to drop my speed for
safety reasons, under hard acceleration the bike would squat and as for the
state of UK roads the bumps where a nightmare everything just got out of shape.
So it was decided the suspension needed setting up, after looking at You Tube
videos and reading the wealth of information on the internet about setting up
your own suspension I decided time for an expert, so I contacted John and asked
for help. Due
to the weather this summer (2012) I could just not get to John so I asked him
to come to me, and he did, so on a very wet Friday John spent about an hour or
so in my garage asking me to get on and off the bike while he measured and
altered settings, the result, well on Sunday during a break in the rain I took
the bike out for a test, it’s like a different bike, firstly it feels firmer
when I’m sitting on it, bumps no longer get the bike out of shape it just takes
them in its stride, and best of all, it holds the line and changes direction
much quicker, roundabouts and my favourite twisty roads are all taken with
ease, even the increased cost of John coming to me it is worth it, in fact John
you really don’t charge enough for what you do! Jason

John, Just got finished with track day at Mallory park, the suspension was
absolutely fantastic John. It was so smooth, predictable turned in held
the line and exited without any issues. It’s amazing to go round Gerrards,
The lake S's and the Hairpin with your knee planted into the
tarmac and the Blade was so stable and not 1 sign of a headshake. All in
all a fantastic day. The suspension was spot on and required no adjustments.
You really transformed the whole bike with your adjustments and I felt so
confident riding it fast.
Thx again John for sorting out the blades suspension! Regards Chris.
Honda CBR600 RR
Hi John Thank you very
much for setting up my bike. Has to be the best money I have spent by far.
After 35000 road miles and three different sets of tyres not realising what the
problem with handling was. The back no longer drifts out in the bends, braking
is so much better doesn't feel harsh as if it's going to chuck me and I
wasn't thrown out of the seat over bumps. We left Squires in what
must be the wettest day this year and rode over to Seaways then home to
Lincolnshire The difference was awesome such a smooth enjoyable ride, the bike
felt planted and level, I had so much more confidence, even in the wet was
keeping a nice pace. Feels like a different bike! Thanks again
Thank you for setting my bike up. The front is a lot more forgiving and
not pounding through my arms. Much smoother in the bends handles much better
all round and that's in the wet!! Has definitely made a big
difference Very happy with your service and will certainly be recommending you. Now can’t wait for the next dry day. Thanks
Honda Fireblade 2009
Thanks for the great job you
did to my 2009 HRC blade, and telling me what was wrong with the settings
before asking me if I had any problems, you were spot on about the bikes
rebound and how it being too hard and throwing me off the seat when I hit
a bump, my gooleys now feel much better. I
cannot believe how for the money the difference it’s made to my bike and my
riding. Thanks again Steve
Honda Fireblade 1000
John, You adjusted the settings on my black Fireblade (I was one of your first customers,
arrived with Roger on his HRC blade) The difference was simply outstanding, the
bike felt far more responsive in both the handling and the braking. I only
covered about 50 miles but to be honest within the first couple of miles I was
over the moon. If you ever need a reference for your service please don't
hesitate to use me. Regards Geoff
Honda Fireblade 1000
the bike handles like a dream now thanks to you we had a good ride back from
Willingham Woods. Roger
Hi John, Thanks for doing my VFR1200 yesterday. I can
confirm that it's well and truly sorted. Glides into corners now, without
the hustle that was needed before. Much more 'planted' in general. The bike
feels level where it didn't before. It’s great and I'm so pleased I found you. Carl
Honda Fireblade 1000
Hi John, I would just like to take this opportunity to thank
you for the work you did on my Blade. Before I came to see you the handling
was awful, it was like sitting on a plank and it would drift wide,
out of the corners. What can I say, it's like a new bike! Also, the last little
tweak you did last week seems to have improved it even more.
Thanks very much, Tony.
Hi John, I was out getting familiar
with the bike again, been way too long. The rear is definitely absorbing
the bumps better now, less bone shaking and more comfortable. The
front is more planted for sure, it doesn't feel as if its going to fold
when I'm leaned over, I'm no pro racer
but you've definitely made a big difference with the
new oil and settings, so many many thanks to you. Dave
Hi John, I visited you last week
for the suspension set-up on my CBR600rr6. I then visited Cadwell Park on
Wednesday for a trackday. The bike was spot on the handling was excellent. You
definitely eradicated the nervous front end twitch. It felt far better than
previous times on track. Thank you for your help. Peter
I got mine set up the same time as Jacko71 and as soon as I
rode it out of his garage I could feel the difference. He stiffened the front
up from 5 turns in to 10 (max is 18 in), took the back up a notch and fiddled
with the compression/rebound. I cant believe how much better it feels now, I'd
had the front go on me a few times for no reason but if feels firmly planted
now and does exactly what I want it to. Definitely the best money I’ve ever
Went over last night and I have to agree with you. The bike
feels much more stable into the corners. Doesn't lunge at the front and the
rear doesn't bog down on the way out now. Very level front and back.
I know some of you guys can do this yourself, but for the money and a ride out I
thought it was worth getting someone who knows what they're doing rather than
Went to see the guy last week and let him have a look at the
bikes, he looked at mine and took some measurements we lifted the bike at the
front measured some more then the back then me on it then off it after about
half an hour he said "well yours isn’t far out from spot on but ill give
some tweeks see how we go" 10 mins later I took it for a ride, and to say
it wasn’t far out what a difference he made within 200 yards I could tell a
difference, so I took it on some different roads (no twistys around Morley)
really, but bloody hell the front seems to be so much more planted and the feel
is unbelievable, it brakes better and handles better, I’ve heard people say it
feels like a new bike and I didn’t believe it could but it bloody does, best money I’ve ever spent well worth a trip......Jacko71

Hi there John,
Was out at the weekend and did out 240 miles, very happy with what you have
done to the Fireblade suspension, the bike is a lot more stable in a straight
line at speed and cornering has also improved as it hold its line better going
in and coming out of the corner too, its a far better improvement to how it
was, can not wait the get it round the TT course now.
Big Thanks, Graham.
Honda Fireblade 1000
Hey John - Did about 200 miles today on the bike – I’m
pleased with how it handles through corners now, feels better over bumps as well.
John, I would like to thank you again for what you did to my
bike. My first impressions when I took it for a short ride to test it were very
good, they were even better on the ride home and when I went to east coast on
Friday they were better still. I have a lot more confidence in it now,
especially the front. There was no twitching from it like I have experienced
before and it felt firmly planted going exactly where I wanted it to.
Thanks once again, I will be recommending you to everyone I know with a bike.
Honda Fireblade 954
You set up my Fireblade 954 on Sat aft, You said I would be able to brake
later into corners and you were true to your word. The bike is so much better
under braking and all round handling. I noticed things before that was due to
the suspension i.e., it was diving at the front end when I was braking and
bouncing on bumps when throttling off into corners. You have made my bike so
much better and my 3 mates whose bikes you set up all say the same. Thanks
John it was a pleasure to meet you and I will be recommending you to all
the bikers I know. P.S I will see you over the winter as we discussed that you
would change my fork oil.
Thanks again John regards Simon.
Hi John, the front feels more direct now, with a lot less of
the "flex" or weave I was feeling as I powered out of corners, that I
thought was from the back end. I have started to throw it into corners now
rather than just ride around like I would over winter, so I have much more
confidence in the front end.
Thanks for your work ... money very well spent in my eyes.
Hello John, ,You set my 02 Fireblade up on Saturday morning.
The difference was so noticeable, more feel at the back, greater stability and
she turns in like a dream.
Many thanks. Chris Courtenay
Honda CBR 600F Sport
Hi John, Just a quick one to say many thanks for setting up
my bike CBR 600 F sport, my initial reaction after the work was wow what a
difference it made to the whole bike, handling, braking and acceleration have
all been improved, it's amazing how some small tweaks can make a big
improvement, I’d also like to say its nice to do business with someone who puts
as much passion into their job as I do, too many companies just want your money
these days its good to deal with someone who wants the job done right, once
again many thanks I wont hesitate to recommend to my friends. Regards, Darren
Went to Cadwell Park, to watch not race, balls aren’t that big. The set up is
amazing. Gives a lot better response in and out of bends, more confidence in
bike handling. Have told a few mates, talked to other bikers and a lot know of
you. If I have any probs will call in.
Many thanks Adrian.
