Ok...first off 2003 R6.

Would I benifit at all by changing some of my suspension components? Well, obivously I would by going with some nice Ohilins stuff ect. But is it needed..new fork springs ect....

I know the R6 is geared toward lighted riders. With all my gear on I am about 200lbs. The sag on my bike is dead on so the stock stuff is set up right...well, at least I think it is.

So would I beifit from changing springs ect?

Thanks for the help. :mrgreen:

Here's a really cheap fix for the front....

heavier fork oil. Just going to the next weight up will make a pretty noticable difference.

You can also get a stiffer spring for the rear, that is a few more $$$ but still relatively cheap.

If you are just riding on the road, and doing so at a relatively sane pace... the stock stuff should suffice. However, if you are really pushing it, and also doing some track riding; it would be wise to think about modding the suspension.

However, if you want to spend some money, send your forks off to a suspension shop to be valved and sprung for your weight and riding style. ~ $400. Then get a decent aftermarket shock ~$700. This will make a WORLD of difference.
