I have '05 GSX-R 750 Forks. I looked on the Racetech website and it says they're the correct spring rate for my weight. I've got 35mm of sag. But I feel like my front suspension does not feel as stable as my rear suspension.

I've got an Elka Triple Clicker in the rear. What is the most cost effective way to upgrade the front suspesion?

fork revalve is the cheapest, were your forks serviced lately? the oil breaks down and should be serviced every couple years at least, or if they were serviced maybe a different viscicty oil was put back in.:hmmm:

Your compression and rebound damping settings are probably not set correctly. If you set them correctly that should fix things. There is a suspension tuning guide in the Tech FAQ section.
I've messed with them and honestly I don't feel a different.

All I know is, when I installed the Elka Triple clicker I noticed a world of difference between the stock and aftermarket rear suspension. Now I'm just wishing I had as much adjustabillity with the front suspension.

When I go over a bump, I feel it through the bars from the forks, but the rear suspension just "absorbs" everything.

How much do you weigh? You want your front set around 40mm and the rear at 32mm. What is your free sag in the rear after adjustments? Weight has a large factor when it comes to suspension. You can change out just the factory springs in the front and make a hudge improvement. Revalving is another option if you have the money. Your factory cartridges are 20mm already so AK20's are a waste of money you can do the same thing by revalving your existing factory equipment for a lot less.
