Suspension Set Up

I have an 2010 CBR 1,000RR, it's a cornering machine, but just doesn't "Dive" down into the curves like I am used to.......I have heard good things about Motorcycles Unlimited being able to set up the suspension for my Weight and Style......Anyone have any insight on this ?Click image for larger version

Me too!
Really transformed the way my bike handles.

How much change you will feel really all depends on how far from correct, your suspension is currently and how sensitive you are to those changes.

Motorcycles Unlimited for the experience and the win.

Also ask them about resetting your forks or raising the rear ride height.. both can have a profound effect on turn in feel, beyond a basic suspension set up.

Just be sure and tell whoever does it exactly how you ride. Track setup is usually a little too stiff for the street and vice versa.
