Seals & Suspension Setup

I've had leaking fork seals for a while and while I'm on holidays am also looking to take the plunge and get the suspension set up properly.
Have any Sydney/NSW based members had any experience with this place Shock Treatment Home Page they seem to have some good reviews.
Haven't been down this path before so any recommendations are appreciated.
P.S. bike is a 2006 F4
Cheers Phil.

My son's a regular track day rider on his 2016 YZF-R1 and no slouch. He just had his forks and shock done by them I'm pretty sure. He was well pleased and said he shaved a couple of seconds of his Morgan park time with that and bypassing the bikes ABS. Anyway he said it was well worth it.

Thanks Deano.
Knowing the bikes history I can guarantee the suspension settings are exactly as they came from the factory.
The seals are leaking pretty badly now, more from lack of use than anything else, so if I'm going to get them done I would rather it be done by someone specialising in this area that's doing it all the time and just spend a bit of time on the settings to get the bike setup properly and give me as much confidence as possible, certainly no racer here but would like to feel comfortable and confident every time I get on it.

You could also try Glen Allerton. He i sa regular at SMSP and works on people's suspension also Search Glen Allerton Suspension Development (GASD) (2008 ASBK champ). My mate has had good results with him. I have had good results with Suspension Smith in Canberra for my track bike.

Wisest money I ever spent on a motorcycle was getting the suspension sorted. Laurie at Suspension Smith in the ACT.

Power grid is working overtime in this heat, I'm just sitting through our 3rd blackout in as many days.
Appreciate the feedback, it's good to know there are a few decent places around. More than likely will stay local, Shock Treatment is about an hour away and I'll also checkout Glen Allenton too, if he's based around Eastern Creek that's even closer.
Thanks guys.
