We can offer a selection of manufactures upgardes on all of our service items. These are done as part of a full service, and in some cases a lower leg or air can service. A small range of the most popular upgrades are included in the price lists but if you don't see what you're looking just get and touch.

Fork Bushing Replacement

If you are aware of sigificant play between your forks stanchions and lower leg it may be that the bushes need replaced. We use specialist tools to measure the bushes to see if they are outwith reasonable tolerences before we replace them. The bushes are removed and replaced with a fresh new set which are then measured and sized to get the perfect fit.

Custom Valving

Custom valving is used as a last resort if you can't get the results you want from the range of adjustments available on the fork and shock. Rebound and compression shims stacks are removed and reconfigured to give the required damping characteristics.

Andreani Piston Kit

The Andreani piston kit upgrade can only be done part of a full service on your fork. The damper piston is replaced with an Andreani high flow piston and the rebound and compression shims are replaced with custom stacks designed for the optimum performance of your particular damper. Different configurations are available depending on your weight and what you ride.
