Team Suzuki Ecstar MotoGP test rider Sylvain Guintoli explains how to set up a production Suzuki GSX-R1000R road bike during a recent trip to an open track day at Oulton Park in the UK.

In the video, shot before the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic forced a lockdown of global motorcycle sport and social gatherings, Guintoli walks-through and explains in detail the small-but-important adjustments you can make to the machine - in this case the new 2020 GSX-R1000R - under various weather conditions to improve performance and lap-times.

As normal for Suzuki’s MotoGP test rider, his video is entertaining and informative to anyone considering trying-out a track day, or even just setting up their machine for various road-going conditions.

Said Guintoli: “It was a blast to record the video “HOW FAST IS A STREET BIKE” at Donington Park. I wanted to use the GSX-R1000R absolutely standard so I didn’t change any settings to record the fast lap. On the way home I couldn’t stop thinking about a few setting modifications to improve the performance on track, so I made a few adjustments and went back on track a few days later to check it out.”
