Photos of the AMA Jordan Suzuki GSX-R1000.
- The Jordan team is known for their original paint jobs and body styling which is performed in-house.
- Out back the Ohlins TTX36 rear shock in mated to in-house machined linkages, giving the team a variety of options to choose from depending on the track.
- Day 2 and I got some time on May's National Guard "A" bike.
- Full-lean side grip from the National Guard bike was staggering.
- Our test was part of a private two-day AMA team test. Nothing like learning a new track with all the big kids...
- Speaking of insane, the slightest twitch of one’s right wrist on the National Guard Suzuki results in nothing short of neck-snapping acceleration.
- During races, May's bike is set-up with longer wheelbase to allow for more predictable sliding of the rear tire as grip fades over the course of a race.
- Attack triple clamps are used, but the steering stem and internal adjustment cups are designed and machined by Gemini.
- For a mere $50k you could have your own basic Superbike.
- Sporting top-of-the-line Brembo monoblock calipers and master cylinder, to say these bikes stop on a dime would be an understatement.
- As far as overall compliance for my size at my pace, I tended to like the wet-setting front-end better, as the dry set-up was a hair stiff.As far as overall compliance for my size at my pace, I tended to like the wet-setting front-end better, as the dry set-up was a hair stiff.
- Stainless steel rubber coated brake lines combined with the Brembos and light-weight wheels, make stopping easy.
- 17" light-weight wheels shod in Dunlop spec-series slicks are mandatory per AMA rules.
- Safety wire and engine safeguards are a must on these machines.
- Each of the Jordan Suzuki race bikes offer adjustable offsets and rakes depending on rider.
- Private test on a factory-supported Superbike. Hard to beat this...
