Anyone in LA want to help me change my shock?

MotoGP is coming up next weekend and I'm trying to get this thing dialed in

I'm in Marina del Rey but will ride almost anywhere. All the shops are booked up and I don't have a means to hoist up the bike.

food/beers on me

If you can help out, I'm reachable @ 310.594.5577 or warren_victor"at"toyota.com

Thanks!

In Monterey Park, there's a shop called "Motorcycles Plus." Ask for Luis. It looks like a small ghetto shop, but he does good work. I don't have the # on me at the moment, but any yellowpages.com search should find it for ya.

Did you actually want suspension setup and changes made to the shock? Then try Stig at PPS (http://www.ppsracing.com/) or Race Tech.

If you just need a shock swapped or removed, see my previous post.

Cheers!

Thanks for the contact!

In the end, I was able to get an appointment with Marina Suzuki for tomorrow morning. If my calipers show up, I'll have 'em to do the GSXR1000 caliper/master combo at the same time.

The shock should already be setup for my weight, I'm just going to have them lengthen it by 5MM.

Warren.

Smile Sorry boss

I thought my message was generic enough for universal thanks and good vibes to all, my bad

Here's the chicken minus all the new cool bits. Always feel free to say hello.

I'm not sure where the gauge faces are from. The PO said he got them from the UK.

As for mods, I had the following put on this time around:

CRG clutch lever
Coerce fork stabilizer
Fox Double clicker

Other fun stuff includes

Harris rearsets
Racetech springs/valves
SS brake lines EBC pads
Carbon hugger, tank protector, tree cover, front fender (selling this one)
Devil high mounts
Puig double bubble
