*** PLEASE NOT WE ALSO SERVICE AND UPGRADE OFF ROAD SUSPENSION UNITS ***
Front Fork From Service £140
A front fork service covers a full strip and clean. The Guide bushes and dust seals are inspected for wear, the fork legs are checked for wear and run out, the compression and rebound valves are stripped and cleaned and all shim stacks dismantled and cleaned (where applicable). The forks are then rebuilt using OEM or OE quality NOK oil seals. If any wear is evident, we report to you before under taking any additional work so you do not have any surprises.
Front Fork Service (Superbike / Bitubo etc) £180
Some forks have gas pressurised cartridges that need additional seal heads and some Superbike forks have additional parts that require servicing and as such increases the price over a "Standard" fork.
If you are in any doubt over what forks you have please contact us on 01777 871 095
Standard Shock Service £140
Our rear shock service is similar to that of our fork service. It covers a full strip, Clean and Inspection of all parts. Rebuilt using high quality seals and Ohlins Oil.
We can service most makes of Shock – Please contact us for details.
Servicing your OE fitment shock can real huge benefits as the OE Oil is poor quality and over time can become aerated and create substantial cavitation – which creates poor damping. Most OE shock Oil, when drained, is almost like foam!
Aftermarket Shock Service £160
Some aftermarket shocks require additional parts and seal heads / kits hence the sightly higher price
Kawasaki OE fit Ohlins Steering Damper Race Conversion / Upgrade £60
Kawasaki OE fitted Ohlins steering dampers are built to a specification laid down by Kawasaki and as such do not have the damping quality required for use on the track. We offer a rebuild/service and upgrade for them which changes the damping characteristics more akin to an aftermarket Ohlin unit at a fraction of the price. This conversion is strictly NOT FOR HIGHWAY USE.
