Customer Testimonials and Feedback


  • Took my Honda vfr1200 dct to mark today 4th January.  The bike felt heavy in the corners. I had a new shock fitted and the forks set up.  After setting up correct sag and settings, not only does it feel better it feels more stable and I feel more confident in bike. Best £40 you will spend on your bike. Thanks Mark for a top service.  Phil Holland, Oldbury.
  • Mark took the spanners to my 2007 zx10r before a trip to "the ring". The feed back and confidence his suspension getting gave me allowed me to push to the limit of my ability. Without his work on my bike I wouldn't have had half the fun I did, plus I kept it shiny side up :) Allan Ashall, Liverpool.
  • Thanks Mark for a great job overhauling my Multistrada suspension, I couldn’t be happier with your service.  Rob Oakes, Stoke on Trent.
  • SSR suspension are a fantastic company to deal with, Mark is very good at what he does, from the first phone call which Mark took his time to go through all the options without any hard sell at all. I have had a Nitron rear shock fitted to my Yamaha MT 09 Tracer and it has made a world of difference to the handling of the bike real night and day difference. Mark explains every stage of the modification in plain English, and I learnt more about Motorbike suspension in two hours than I ever had before. I can not recommend this company enough five star and brilliant customer service.  Tim Jones, Cannock.
  • I took my 5 year old Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 Factory to see Mark at SSR. I have a basic understanding of how bike suspension works but Mark impressed me with his depth of knowledge. He has transformed the bike, it feels sure footed and balanced and it turns in to corners like a dream.  He did several other small jobs on the bike while it was with him, I can not fault his service and workmanship.  Highly Impressed.  Elliott Oakes, Stoke on Trent.
  • SSR Suspension came highly recommended and Mark didn’t disappoint. I’d just spent a some years rebuilding a NC35 race bike and the first time out I discovered that the new Nitron shock spring was far too soft.  I called Mark in the morning and he agreed to meet me that evening (well outside working hours) and he removed the shock, swapped the spring and refitted it and set about adjusting my bikes suspension.  The next day I was on the track at Anglesey and the difference was instantly noticeable and the bikes handling was turned around.  Nice mixture of friendly professional service with advice and coffee freely given – thank you again and I would be happy to recommend SSR Suspension – Andy, Banhoj.com.
  • Mark set my suspension up on my K8 GSXR 600, top job,great guy and makes a good cup of tea !, bike now handles great rather than a bucking bronco thanks again, can not believe how different she now rides.  Alex Fletcher, Bridgenorth.
  • SSR dealt with the overhaul of my track bike suspension including fitting a new Nitron rear shock. The quality of the parts and service was excellent, I couldn’t fault it. Mark also spent plenty of time with me setting the bike up. As a result the bike was transformed. It was so much easier to ride and confidence inspiring enabling me to put the bike where I wanted it to go and as a result lapping faster but at the same time safer. Even though I’m just an occasional track day rider it was still worth every penny to know that my bike is properly set up for me and to feel the benefit of that. Highly recommended.  David Raymont, Shrewsbury.
  • Mark is a stand up bloke, really knows his stuff about motorbike suspension and offers an unbeatable ride out service where he tweaks the suspension on your bike whilst out on real roads. Highly recommended.  Darren Miller.
  • Had a fabulous experience, Mark is very knowledgeable and down to earth, explains things in plain English that even I could understand, my bike has been transformed, cannot recommend SSR highly enough, if you only do one upgrade to your bike make sure it's your suspension, I guarantee you won't be disappointed.  Paul Day.
  • Popped over from Lincoln last weekend to see Mark and go on a 'ride along' suspension setup. Upon arrival we were greeted with a brew :) winner! It was straight down to business and setting the preload of the bikes making sure correct sag measurements could be obtained. With this done, it was out onto the roads. The route set has just about all the different road surfaces you will come across. Marks knowledge is vast and what's more is he is able to get that information across to us mere mortals ver well. Throughout the ride, he  concentrates on one aspect of the suspension at a time and deliberately sets the bikes up so you feel both extremes of the damping circuits (how do you know what the right settings are, if you don't know what the wrong settings are right?  By the end of the ride a set up is dialled in and  depending on the feedback given to Mark he adjust the setup to firm things up or soften them. In my case it came down to 1/4 turn on the shock to soften it up and a little softer on the front.  From start to finish it was brilliant. The difference is night and day. Total transformation of how the bike feels. I would have happily paid more for the level of service Mark gives. I will definitely recommend him to anyone who is willing to listen :)  Thanks for a good time and a great setup , Joe.
  • Took my race bike to Mark after having some suspension problems. He took the time to sort it out and get it properly set up and talked me through the process. Overall an excellent experience and I would, and have, recommend his services to anyone.  Tom Arkell.
  • Had mark set up my bike on track and wow what a massive difference it made to the bike cheers mark for supplying the suspension and setting it all up. Craig Gator, Chester.
  • Had my bike set up today by mark and its totally transformed the handling 110% recommended best £35 i have ever spent on my bike.         Will Jones.
  • Mark is an amazing guy, really helped me out with instability issues I was having with my CBR954. He didn't just transform the bike, he offered an outstanding service. Not just setting the bike up, but explaining what and how he was doing it, while offering great hospitality in the process. Very happy.  Allan Ashall.
  • SSR offers a fantastic service! Marks knowledge base is extensive and this reflects the work ethic he offers, Mark explains the science behind suspension and wants the rider to have the best experience with his or hers motorcycle. What Mark doesn't know isn't worth knowing in my opinion!  My bike was transformed with a complete suspension set up and this transformed the way i ride.  Mark's suspension builds are built with passion and a desire to give the rider the best possible experience.  I highly recommenced Mark at SSR Suspension and will be using his services again when i purchase my new bike in 2016!  Peter Beckett.
  • I have a 5 year old Daytona 675 and a previous owner had clearly messed around with the suspension, so a bike renown for its handling felt skittish and was making me nervous. Mark took around 45 minutes to get it feeling like a different bike, wow! I noticed the difference before I'd even got to the road and when I did my confidence came straight back. Even if you don't have any doubts about your setup it's well worth going and getting your bike matched to you.  Mark is very knowledgable and explained everything he was doing and what the effects were. We had a good laugh all with free tea. Definitely worth 5 stars, its the best £35 I've spent on my bike.  Thank you Mark, for a highly recommended service!  Ade C.
  • Took my bike  to  mark at ssr  for a chassis set up and he took the time   to explain in detail  what did what and how it  the set up effected  the bike handling  while tweaking the settings on the bike. An hour later and after 2 cups of tea  i came away with a completely better handling bike, i'd  highly recommend anyone to get ssr to set up your suspension  as  well any other suspension  work  you  need done, marks to guy to see.  Dave Robinson.
  • Huge thanks to Mark Standley from SSR Suspension. He had his measuring tape out, twiddled some black magic knobs, told me very gently that I'm too fat for my shock springs and straight after I cut my lap time by 8 seconds!!  Really nice guy and knows his stuff, he was only too happy to help with any bike issues at all, from tyre pressures to helping a mate with his dodgy old kwack!  Ross Allan.
  • Thank you so much Mark.  Hubby persuaded to have my suspension adjusted and I was alittle sceptical ( I'm a novice ). I noticed the difference before I was out of the estate. The difference  was  like the difference  between sleeping on the floor and lying in a comfy bed. I used to feel every bump harshly and it's now so much better. Definately recommend for even the sceptics like me.  Lisa Butler.
  • SSR are fantastic to deal with Mark has great product and technical knowledge and is always there to help !! Brilliant company to do business with start to finish thank you Mark.  Lee, Wer1 Racing.
  • My experience began with a basic setup along with five other customers running standard units.at the time Mark explained there was an issue an to remain in touch an he would look into the matter further which he did and working within my means we sourced the correct spring for my ohlins shock which was then sent to ssr for a full service an re gas an the correct shims etc.throughout Mark has been outstanding the bike now handles 100% better an i will be using ssr in the future to work on my forks. coms have been brilliant in the sense that mark wants you to understand whats involved an how to get the best out of the kit.ive since recommened ssr suspension to all my friends and will continue to do so great service.  Glenn Byrdd.
