    Hot on the heels of the Tenere package we have stocked up on Suzuki DR650 fork springs, shock springs and our V4s valves (Emulators, Travel control valves, PD valves, Intimators..whatever you want to call a valve that sit on the top of a damper rod to give it some speed sensitive dampening character!)

    Anyway, for $750 off the bike or $800 ride in ride out you get fork springs, V4s valve, fork service, modified damper rods, shock service and revalve and a shock spring.
    Available fork spring rates 0.48,0.50,0.52,0.54,0.56,0.58,0.60
    Shock spring 7.0,8.0,9.0,10.0

    If you are a suspension tuner/ enthusiast and you just want to buy the parts, call or email for some pretty sharp prices. We do wholesale the springs and kits out daily.

    2-3 day turnaround or book for same day service.

    Any other bikes you guys would like to see a kit package on?

    I have had this package installed by Nick and I cannot believe the difference it has made. Highly recommend this to anyone, especially if you haven't got a PhD in suspensions or the time and patience to research on the Internet (unlike some on this and other forums).
    Go see Nick, tell him what sort of riding you do, and he will get you sorted with a minimum of fuss and hassle free.
    Too bloody easy. You will not regret it.:clap

    As with the Tenere, I have landed the new shipment of springs, we can run this deal again!
    $750 suspension only or $800 ride in ride out.

    At $750 it's 28.9% off!
    What you get
    Fork springs. Rates available .50 .52 .54 .56 .58 .60 .65 .70
    Emulators, PD valves, V4s valves, whatever you want to call em'!
    Shock spring. Rates 8.0 9.0 10.0
    Revalved stock shock.
    Fitting, service fork and shock, suspension fluid.

    OR

    $1295 with an MSC downunder damper kit.

    I had a customer this year who claimed the DR was un-ridable with modified suspension and no damper, that all DR's must have dampers fitted and i was crazy or stoopid or something to not offer it as a package.
    So, despite the fact that there are bazilions of DR owners in the world with modified suspension and no damper, we now have the "complete package!"

    Yes, I've done a few of them. Forks are pretty good, just need springs and a revalve. Heaps better than the 800GS forks.
    Shock is the same but I don't change springs unless you are exceptionally heavy or light.
    I'll put some more detail in my website under the featured bikes section when i get a chance, need to find the photos of the Tiger apart....

    There is always one. Taking a positive out of a negative.
    We usually have positive feedback on our DR650 setups. Last year we had a very negative response. "Unrideable, bottoms everywhere, washes out in sand"
    The customer wanted to use his DR as an RMX450 and ride it on MX tracks.
    While this was outside what a DR is made for, it reminded me of modifying trailbikes to race in Thumper Nats in the 90's. While we had never done this kind of development to a DR it was too tempting to pass up.
    The next 2 weeks were spent pulling forks and shocks in and out, trying some recomended parts like Race Tech's adjustable rebound for the shock, the CD Moab shock and the SuperBrace. We did most of the testing at a track 10 minutes from the shop that's a notorious whooped out sand track with a hard pack clay base next to it.
    What we ended up with after 600km and two weeks was settings that we are very happy with. The testing was done by our resident B Grade MX rider who has a lot of trail miles under his belt. he came away slightly astonished at how good the DR can be. The best part is it's still great on trails at low speeds. It's exactly what we wanted, an even better setting for our customers on DR's while retaining the low cost fun factor that makes the DR a favorite!
    We affectionately call it the "Giblett setting" After it's instigator, Rod Giblett.:clap
