Hello there! Hope you are all well! I was just looking in the suspension section in hope to find a thread to relate to my problem, but I haven't had any luck so far. I am wanting to improve the front suspension on my RG250 to hopefully improve the performance on the road. Can anybody suggest what would be an improvement? Thanks!

I put a pair of gsxr forks on mine. They are 1989 750 forks, 41 mm. They work great. I can't advise about the axle size , you might have to change bearings or something like that. I'm using 17" Katana wheels.

Spoke with these guys http://www.brooksuspension.co.uk/suzuki ... rvice.html who confirmed my suspicions that the forks were poor and suggested as a budget upgrade with out having to do anything drastic such as a full fork change, that a refresh and a re-spring might be the way forward. They only charge £120 to refresh the oil and seals and they charge £85 for a set of springs.

I agree with the above posts. Better oil, new seals, new springs and possibly, if your budget allows, cartridge emulators. The GSXR forks are probably overkill on my bike but I race mine and it has less flex in the front end with these.

Fairly local to me, only 45 mins away, so might come in useful. Cheers.
