Cool! I race a 1989 VTR250 Interceptor currently against Ninja 250's and 300's, and it is as fast as the 300's, but not necessarily faster than a hopped up 250 lol... I got this bike to use as my 'B' bike at the track, and yes suspension is a priority for it, looking for a Penske or Fox twin clicker for a modest price (if there is such a thing). I have read that an SV650 shock will work and any of the remote reservoir GSXR shocks will fit also, including the Bandit shocks. The 250J shock is a cheap alternative, and would be better than the stocker, that's for sure! I am going to try and fit EX500 rims to it, they would allow 17" tires to be fitted also. I just got off the phone with Pirelli USA, and they list a Sport Demon in 110/70-16 and 130/70-16 on their website, but they are only available in EUROPE!! They don't feel it is enough in demand here in the states... disappointing to say the least. Weight reduction will occur I hope on my end also, I need to 'drop' enough to gain another 3 horsepower lol...
I also want to apologize for hijacking this thread, i got carried away lol...
