Parts & Servicing

Just like most race car/bike parts, a damper's internals are a consumable item and need to be maintained at regular intervals to maximise its performance.  Although we use the best quality oil available to minimise the effects of wear, it still degrades with increased usage, so regular oil changes are required. The oil seals and O-rings too are of the highest quality but should be replaced with the oil along with the main piston shims, which also lose performance with fatigue and wear.

Damper Re-valve £75.00 excl. VAT per damper

Damper re-valve enables performance to be maximized for your application, it is the necessary progression of performance, vehicle development, weight reduction, set up or even a changing track are factors that could require your suspension to be re-valved. Driver/Riders style and preferences is an additional factor especially in changing vehicle. Key advantage of a re-valve is they tuning the damper using the dyno to result in the optimum damper for your speciation.

Dyno Testing

Dyno testing your damper will provide the ability to validate performance, check adjustment range and operation and fault diagnosis on damage components and leaks. After testing you will be provided with results graphs and printout. 

  •  £30 per damper excl. VAT 

 

Trackside Test Support & Mobile Engineering

Whether you're a novice racer, engineer or a race team trying to find the last tenth of a second with the 'ultimate' damper set up. We offer a mobile trackside support service. 

Testing can be limited and expensive. By utilizing our trackside test support service to remove the guesswork from your damper setup. Ultimately cutting damper testing time considerably, you can dedicate more time towards other areas of the car's development.
