A key part of SRD is to ensure our riders feel comfortable on their bikes. To assist with this we have a technician from Yamaha Australia come to W.A. to do the team suspension before the start of each season.
Darren Thompson is an integral part that brings direct information on the latest Yamaha improvements and suspension settings. He runs on a tight schedule and always has many sets of forks and shocks to do ranging from YZ85cc all the way to our YZF450’s.
Before heading back to his home base in Sydney he also assists with fine tuning each rider’s suspension during a test day held at a local circuit. After doing this for many years we now have the ability to continually keep adjusting and improving for each circuit encountered throughout the year.
