  • GSXR forks on TLR or TLS

    Anyone tried running these on their bike, any benefits or problems with this setup.

    In stock form the GSXR Showa forks have better damping and more adjustability than the TL's Kayaba's. That is not to say that with a little money and tuning the TL forks couldnt perform nearly as good as the stock GSXR forks.

      NEARLY AS GOOD AS THE STOCK gsxr forks, what about modded GSXR forks?

        I have never ridden anything so responsive to the roads as on my GSXR. It is SOOOOOOOO compliant that it gives me so much more confidence than my modded TL suspension.

          they would all be modded similarly. best to mod your stock TL forks.

              Nope need both triples. You also need the gixxer rim and I'm not sure about the clip ons, but i'm guessing you'll need most of the gixxers front end components

                  all the SRAD and new gen gix are teh same showa forks. 600's w/ the standard and 750 w/ the USD. spring rates may vary but other than that and maybe color of preload caps and triples, they're the same.

                  not including the 1k which is the same stock KYB internal junk the TL's and busas have.

                    For the $$ you're talking about in replacement you could send your forks to Traxxion, LE, or RaceTech and have them revalved, rebuilt and custom taylored to your riding style.

                    Why would you spend the $$ on "stock" peices from some other bike.? Even if it's newer? I don't think the gain is there.

                      What would a rough idea be for a fork rebuild like that? low-hi

                        LE quoted me $400, to rebuild, revalve, respring the front. You can check the others..

                            I'm not saying $400 is cheap, just that if you're looking to change triples and forks, then have to change the wheel.. You're changing a ton of things that could affect the handling (geometry). And it's going to still end up costing about that much or more even.

                            I think you'd be happier with it revalved and setup custom. It was funny that in the new sportrider (not that I think they're the final word), that when they had the suspension on the previous hears model tweaked and setup right, they liked it BETTER than the brand new sytle components on the '03 models.
