Suspension Work - Chicagoland Area

Looking to update my suspension on the track bike this season (rear shock and fork kit). Can anyone recommend where? My other option would be to send out my forks and shock and put everything together myself, but I'm not sure if "on the bike" adjustments would be necessary. Last thing I need is to drop money on suspension that'll be worse off then stock due to poor adjustment.

Lost a bar end off my gsxr at autobahn, you see it?

TSE (Trackside suspension & engineering) is fantastic, but this time of year expect a bit of a backlog, I've been waiting to get my stuff back for about a month, but they are good about prioritizing to make sure nobody misses their first event. Another option would be Superbike suspension in naperville. Then as mentioned, you've got Chicago Performance in Northlake. All three can get you sorted,

ugh...i was afraid of that. looks like a road trip to get everything dialed in. i've heard good things about TSE, but they don't do trackside service (emergency only).
