GPR Thunder Slash dual silencer fit on 2015 Suzuki GSX-S1000 S

Posted: March 4, 2016 at 11:08 pm   /   Blogs, Product Reviews, Staff Bikes

  We’re fans of GPR pipes here at SB – they make a good-looking exhaust at a decent price, with a wide range of styling options and noise levels, plus they generally do okay on power as well. So we gave the firm’s Thunder Slash end can a runout on our long term Suzuki GSX-S1000 S, and […]

  Winter’s almost over (isn’t it?) – and we’ve been trying out some proper bad-weather rubber on the mighty Suzuki GSX-S1000 F. Michelin’s Pilot Road range has been one of the go-to choices for all-round riders for years now, particularly the ‘3’ version. The PR3 as it became known won many a rider’s heart for […]

GSX-S1000F at RAF Odiham airfield riding day

Posted: February 21, 2016 at 9:01 pm   /   Blogs, Staff Bikes

  I’ve been to a fair few trackdays over the years. Some of them have been pretty fancy affairs – from a near-empty Mugello riding the litre V-twins of the time, to a winter blast round a quiet Valencia when it was snowing back home. Sepang, Eastern Creek, Catalunya, Spa, Salzburgring: I’ve had a taste […]

SW Motech Blaze Pannier fit on GSX-S1000 F

Posted: January 4, 2016 at 10:45 am   /   Blogs, Product Reviews, Staff Bikes, Uncategorized

Suzuki is very keen to stress that the new GSX-S1000 is very much a sporty naked bike. It’s nothing at all like a certain, SX-y,  Z-list bike from Competitor ‘K’, the nice PR man tells me, on a regular basis. Oh no. Nope. This is all well and good – it’s their bike after all. […]

Suzuki GSX-S1000 F Dynojet Power Commander fit – results.

Posted: November 29, 2015 at 4:57 pm   /   Product Reviews, Staff Bikes

  So I’ve spent the last few weeks riding round on the GSX-S1000 after it had the Dynojet Power Commander fitted. And what a difference… Dynojet UK boss Frank Wrathall got the bike collected, took it up to Cumbria and fitted the PC, before mapping it with the Remus pipe in place. As I said […]

Emissions Scandal!   No, we’re not talking about VW cars belching out masses of nitrous oxides. Rather, the effect of Euro emissions regs on our long term GSX-S1000 F. We’ve been speaking to the good guys at Dynojet UK, about getting a Power Commander fitted to our bike. They’ve been working hard at developing a […]

Three-way Suzuki Hayabusa exhaust test – what gives the most power?

Posted: January 20, 2015 at 11:18 am   /   Product Reviews, Staff Bikes

We’ve tried out a few exhaust systems on our long-term Suzuki Hayabusa test bike, so we thought we’d do a bit of a summary of how they performed. We used the Dynojet dynamometer at Big CC Racing in Wokingham to get a base run on the bike, and then tested the peak power after fitting […]
