I would like to first thank all the riders that have trusted HRS for their suspension work, Racetech and I have been discussing a possible position working with them and we have made an agreement so it is time to close the doors on HRS.
I will be leaving the forum intact and this website intact so if you still want to access it for the information it will remain available. Also I should mention that if any of my customers want me to do their suspension that is still an option, Just send it to the following or get with me at the email address below.
Racetech Attn: Terry 1501 Pomona Road Corona, CA 92880 .
With that said I am definitely not out of the business and now having the resources of Racetech will only make it possible to offer more information and customer satisfaction. If you need any information on any Racetech product feel free to contact me at the email link below.

Terry, Put the shock in and took it for a good 20 mile ride on a mix of roads.Everything from nice high speed smooth curves to typical frost chewed and marked country lanes. The shock worked exactly as I hoped. The acceleration compression was almost completely gone. Getting on the gas exiting high speed turns felt secure and planted. The excessive rebound was also gone, There is a right turn from a 50mph road I take every time I ride, it has a dip mid corner that used to really upset the bike if taken at speed, now it just rode through it with no drama.
Terry really listens to what his customers are looking for and goes the extra mile to make them happy. I look forward to working with Terry again!
My original stock shock showed signs of giving it up a few K-miles ago. The bike was wallowing in corners and generally un-settled on rough pavement.
After sticker shock at the cost of a new aftermarket shock, I contacted Terry about re-building a stock shock to fit my needs. I needed the cornering firmed up, yet keeping the ride on the plush side for long-distance riding.
On Saturday he delivered a re-valved, stock-sprung shock and helped me install it(pain).
The results are WOW!!! I can't believe the changes he created in a stock shock! After a 150mi. ride, the bike stays planted in rough corners and does not wallow at all. Lastly, the suspension is not stiff at all!!
I'd just like to say: "Thank you Terry". Great job, very reasonable cost!!
Terry recently rebuilt a shock for my Katana. The whole experience was very profressional. I got a break down of the parts, and the cost of each, so I knew exactly what I was getting and how much it was going to cost. Tmod took into count my weight and fine tuned the suspension to fit me personally. Terry even called me personally when he had an unexpected problem with my shock.
Now about the product: I cant believe how much of a difference the shock has had on my bike. It was practically a brand new bike. Previously the bike has three inches of sag at its stiffest setting. With the new shock the bike now has a little over one inch of sag.
The performance of my motorcycle has greatly improved. Now as I lean into a corner the rear end stays planted. Before it would often feel as if the rear end was slidding away, now the tire stays firmly to the ground and allows me to use the suspension to add traction in the corners.
I recently sent Terry a spare rear shock for my 03 GSXR1000 racebike and he performed his magic act on it and sent it back. I put it on the bike and took it to Chuckwalla (brand new track) to test it out. Since Chuckwalla is really smoth, I can't attest to the bump-handling capabilities however, I can say that the bike was extremely well planted in the corners and was not wheelie prone at all (which doesn't happen with the stock shock) I'm waiting to take the bike to Button "Bumpy"willow to see how it does with bump absorption however, as far as handling goes, I have never had as much confidence in the rear on the bike as I do now.
Recently purchased a new reavalved/respring 750 shock, and front fork springs and spacer, for my 99 750.
when i bought the bike, the stock suspension was overly pathetic for my wieght, and with the Girlfriend, untollerable!
they new suspension is perfect and makes the bike feel brand new! it now has USEABLE adjustability on the front and rear, and it in the Perrrrrfect sag range.
all his work was plug and play! the rear shock was all together and clean, and the front fork springs where packaged well, and even came with PRECUT spacers! (cutting small increments in thin aluminum like material sucks!)
quick shipping, quality work, great results, outstanding customer support!
Terry took care of my rear shock as well, new spring for my weight and did some re-valving. The bike rides like something I've never known. A++++ man, best work I've ever had done.
