A motorcycle's suspension is the foundation for the ride quality and handling of the motorcycle. Modern suspension components are highly tunable and very sophisticated, but their basic concept of design is very simple; Support the motorcycle with springs and use hydraulic (oil) damping to control the speed at which the motorcycle compresses the spring, as well as the speed at which the spring bounces back.
However, suspension components require proper setup and regular maintenance to perform as they are intended to.
At Moto Station, our goal is to offer our customers the service, components and knowledge to achieve the best suspension system possible. We work on and have experience with all brands, makes and models of forks and shocks.
K-Tech: We are an authorized K-Tech dealer.
If you do one thing to your suspension please do this. Suspension components take a lot of abuse from impacts from the road or trail, heat friction, contamination, etc. When oil is dirty or breaks down, your suspension loses its damping ability and can accelerate wear on internal components as well as affect the ride quality and motorcycle's handling characteristics.
Whether on the street, trail or race track; fresh and clean suspension fluid is paramount to a healthy suspension system.
The other part of getting a suspension system that works for you is setup. "Setup" means tuning the way the suspension components behave and their effect on chassis geometry in a way that matches your riding style and preferences. We rely on our many years of racing experience and partnerships with national-level suspension tuners to offer custom setup services ranging from basic sag measurements to spring rate and geometry adjustments, even to full custom suspension valving.
