It is easy to see why the Suzuki Vstrom is such a success. Great power, reliability and versatility all for a very competitive price. But there is room for improvement. The stock suspension is set up for a 160 lb rider with minimal luggage. And even at that, it is too soft.
I pioneered rebuilding of the stock Vstrom shock. I am an adventure touring rider myself and am intimately knowledgeable about the demands that an adventure rider places on their bikes. Sasquatch Suspensions has hundreds of satisfied customers who I have built shocks for. Your stock Vstrom shock can be fully rebuilt and performance valving set up, then add a custom spring for your weight and loads, all for much less than a replacement shock. Compare that to an Ohlins that runs $1200.00. It is a great bargain. You send me your suspension and it will be sent back to you fully rebuilt and customized based on your needs.
For your forks, I suggest adding the Race Tech cartridge emulators to the DL650 and a set of proper rate, straight rate springs for your application. For the DL1000 I suggest having your forks revalved and set up for you personally for how you ride your bike and what loads you carry. Parts prices and services listed below.
No matter what you choose I will spend the time talking to you to fully understand you, your bike and how you ride so that I can set up the suspension best for you. All of our valving components are also US made.
