    Does anyone have experience with a good suspension shop in the Sacramento area?

    I want to have the suspension on my 07 Suzuki Bandit upgraded. I have learned that a good suspension guru can ultimately save me time, money and headache.

    I will go to the Bay Area if I must, but it would be great to have it done locally.

    Thanks in advance

    Dick's is the place to go for offroad. Not sure if they do street bikes.

    Took the rear Elka shock off my GS couple weeks ago and brought it to Dicks, said he could rebuild it, two week later I went back in and it was still in the same place I left it.
    Called him after leaving two weeks asking about it and was told he was wasting to much time talking on the phone answering questions??? and he didn't have the time to order a rebuild kit, WTF?

    So I'm still lookin...

    Guess if ya got WP suspension on yer Suzuki he might be worth a try :lol3

    I have nothing but good things to say about Dick's...he did my Kawi 450 and my KTM 525. He does great work on dirt bikes, I don't think I'd bring him street bike stuff....he could probably do it fine, not nothis forte'.

    Check with James At Super Plush in San Francisco, he has a great reputation for both on and off road applications.
