Motorcycle: Stealth Black GSXR 1000 K5
Just a query really...
I have currently got my 1k K5 in bits and have replaced the head bearings for an All Balls kit of taper roller bearings as the standard ones were getting a bit "notchy".
Also, at the same time I have taken the front forks and rear shock to a specialised suspension setup company who have serviced the forks and shock and changed the springs and valves all round for slightly lighter ones as I only weigh 12st including leathers and helmet etc.
The bike has covered 18k miles, my question is, will I notice a HUGE difference to the handling of the bike when I get it all back together? I hope so, but I was just curious.
