Keep Your Suspension Handling Like New
Servicing your suspension is important to maintaining your ride quality and keeping a consistent handling character. In addition, it prevents excessive wear of your suspension’s internal components.
To explain, the action of your suspension working while you’re riding creates heat and friction. This combination causes certain parts to fatigue and wear out over time. Additionally, the oil starts to break down, which leads to further wear because it loses ideal lubricating properties. This wear and tear is a normal result of riding your motorcycle. However, without regular service, excessive wear and oil degradation will cause your suspension to lose its original handling character. Your suspension may begin feeling softer and react less predictably than when it was fresh. Therefore, having your forks and shock serviced regularly will maintain the original character and damping of your suspension. To emphasize, it will keep the handling of your bike consistent and help you feel more confident when you’re riding.
Our Latest Updated Valving is Included
If your suspension has already had our revalve service done (for you), and we've come up with improved settings for your bike, we'll update the valving for no additional cost at the time of your suspension service. Furthermore, we guarantee our revalve service for as long as you own your bike/suspension. This means that if you gain/lose weight, increase your skill and/or speed, change your preferred riding terrain, or have some other factor that requires updated valving specs, we'll perform the updates for no additional charge at the time of the service. To be clear, you only ever pay for our revalve service once for any set of suspension. We'll keep it updated and performing at its best for the cost of a service.

What is a Service?
At Precision Concepts, our suspension service is a refresh of our client’s forks and shock to get the performance and damping back to optimum. To demonstrate, a service includes complete disassembly of the suspension. We then clean everything and inspect all of the parts for wear and damage. Next, the fork tube lowers and shock shaft are polished to remove any nicks or burrs. Moreover, any worn parts, seals, or fatigued valving shims are replaced. The suspension is then reassembled using OEM parts and high-quality oils. As a result regular service keeps your suspension feeling consistent, and maintains your bike’s handling performance.
How Often Should My Suspension Be Serviced?
Our recommended service interval for a serious racer, or someone who wants the most consistent performance out of their bike’s handling, is every 15-20 hours of riding. However, if you’re a more casual rider, having your suspension serviced every 30-40 hours should be adequate. Also, bear in mind that excessive storage time causes breakdown as well. As a result, the seals and rubber internal parts can stiffen and crack. This can lead to blown seals, loss of oil and changes in damping. To conclude, the performance of your suspension is paramount to your comfort and confidence on your bike. If it’s feeling a little off, it may be time to get it serviced.
