Can anyone recommend a suspension shop near Brisbane please?
I've used MPE for my Dr and my guzzi and have no complaints
Dave at suspension matters is up there somewhere... perhaps towards the gold coast I think ?.
Another vote here for MPE.
Dave at Suspension Matters did an excellent job on my 701.
Now that youve finally pulled your head out from under the blanket about your tiger suspension , send it to Dave in Glasshouse at Suspension Matters
Notha vote for Dave at suspension matters. In behind Beerwah. Google him. Knowledgeable bloke who will talk to you in ways you can understand and backs what he does. Very satsified customer no other relationship.
Cheers Tom R
Dave at Suspension Matters has done work to my 950 and both 250s. Highly recommended.
Full Force Racing Components in Buderim also seem to get a good rap.
Could try BDS in Capalaba. Michael and Quentin do pretty good work. Michael was team manager for Yamaha off road team and suspension man and Quentin was head Mech for KTM at Springwood and has plenty of riding under his belt with Roof of Africa placings etc. They know there stuff and are worth a phone call. Good to talk to and there prices are good.
I wondered where Quentin ended up. Good dude that knows hios stuff. Glad to see him having a crack on his own.
Thanks for the heads up.
mechmoto / indy sam at nudgee guy kows his stuff
MPE did a good job on my XChallenge, and Suspension Matters did an excellent job on my Berg and my 500X before I fitted long travel RR kit.
Thanks all. I will forward the information to my mate who has recently returned to live in Brisbane. He has a DRZ400S as his first bike and is now pushing it to its limits and has noticed the wishy washy suspension.
My stock suspension on the Tiger is fine BD. I had it serviced in Geelong at KTM after my cross Oz trips. It has a good balance between on road comfort and dirt road compliance over rough stuff. Stutters and whoops ; not so great. If I was younger I would probably go to stiffer springs and valving to make it more KTM like.
another one for Suspension Matters, easy as, send in mail, quick turn around and happy result!
Really it depends on who has the best stickers. Dave’s are a bit ordinary.
I can do a two day Race Tech course, buy all the stuff, get the shim charts, set up shop, sprout big word on forums, impress everyone and in the land of the blind the one eyed man will be king. Not all suspension tuners are equal.
I have followed referrals for tuners on here and ended up in hospital after a bad high speed deflection due to sloppy workmanship and being left with no rebound in one fork leg. Not to mention getting what the tuner thought was the hot setup for A grade supercross rather than listening to me asking for plush suspension for an old unfit trail rider. And then not wanting to know about it when I mentioned what happened.
I learnt the hard way about the ins and out of the industry. Caveat emperor.
I took it to Charlie Costanzo who diagnosed the problem, fixed it, revalved it, resprung it. Gave me a follow up call, offered to come out with me to dial it in. I spoke to him recently and he even offered to revalved it for free if I wanted changes. But it’s so good I don’t even think about it and have taken some massive hits without a hiccup.
