In order to keep your suspension in good shape a suspension service is recommended after every 30-40 hours of riding depending on the type of riding you do. Past this point you could experience loss of dampening and extra wear on the internal parts. Professional racing requires a rebuild after 10 hours of riding. Rebuild maintenance will keep your ride consistent and help to eliminate excessive wear of component items such as shock body and shock shaft.
This includes disassembly, complete cleaning, we polish your fork tubes, we inspect and measure the service limits of parts and replace fork suspension fluid and set oil level in forks. Worn parts are replaced, fatigued valving is replaced in stock configurations (standard settings are retained and front fork is reassembled using genuine Original Equipment Manufacturer parts).
This includes disassembly, complete cleaning, we polish your shock shaft, we inspect and measure the service limits of parts, and replace shock suspension fluid and set nitrogen pressure. Worn parts are replaced, fatigued valving is replaced in stock configuration (standard valving configurations are retained). The shock is then reassembled using genuine Original Equipment Manufacturer parts; these may include oil seal, seal case o-ring, shaft bushing, piston ring and o-ring. Fatigued valving is replaced in compression and rebound stacks.
Stock suspension is rarely set-up for your unique height, weight, skill level and type of riding. Whether you ride motocross, trail, enduro, cross country or adventure you are not getting the most performance out of your suspension unless it is set-up for the type of riding you do.
The wrong set-up results in either too harsh a ride or constant bottoming with unpredictability, less traction and cornering ability, lack of control and confidence in your bike.
This service includes all the work involved in a service. Additionally we modify the internal dampening features to give you a customized set-up for your individual weight, ability, riding style and type of terrain encountered. Because our settings are individualized your support does not end at the time of delivery. We will work with you to make your revalve optimum for you with unlimited phone support and rework if needed.
