    ALLRIGHT, I get to be first.........

    WELCOME ABOARD <------ (standard greeting in case you didn't know)

    Come on in and have a seat....... Can I get you a cuppa tea?

    PS: Drat, beeten by a shorter answer........... Grrrrrr
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.

    Are you new tot he motorcycle scene? Or just new to the sportbike scene? If you're new to riding completely...then a 929RR is a pretty serious machine for a beginner.

    Let me just go against what stickman just said...I whole heartedly recommend Burnaby Kawasaki. They rock.

    If you want to take your bike to a Honda dealership...then Carter Honda is excellent. I took my CBR there when I had it.

    Oh yeah...almost forgot:

    thats exactly what i was thinking...hopefully its not your first bike...
    anyways, since i've been on here most people recommend BK for service dept at least...i would just avoid brian if buying gear, but everyone else was cool to deal with

    Welcome, what kind of suspension work do you have in mind? If you are thinking of getting the forks done (revalve, stiffer springs like .95's, etc) consider emailing Dan Kyle Racing for info. He does an amazing job with forks, go to Fireblades.org to find all sorts of info on the 929, including a bunch of guys who have had their suspension (front forks redone, new rear shock) improved.
