Suspension shop in central Ohio? Picked up a SV650S that needs some work.


Recommended Posts

Are there any shops in the Central Ohio area that do suspension work?   I just picked up a 2007 SV 650S that I intend to use for primarily track use.   It's got 26k miles on it, and while I did get some maintenance paperwork, there is no indication of any work being done to the forks or shock.   

I am aware many people chuck a ZX10 or 14 shock on the back with heavier front springs and emulators, but I'd still need help getting it setup for me.    I'm about 200 pounds.   


Any shop/individual recommendations?   Parts recommendations?     Newbie to the track, so I don't need amazeballs, just don't want to learn to ride on a track on a worn out suspension.

I've got no nothing as far as shop recommendations go. But I can tell you the rear shock is a pretty straight forward and easy swap, and if your just doing heavier oil and springs it can all be done with basic hand tools. I went with .90 sonic springs and 20 weight oil in the front and a GSX-R rear shock.
