One of the most important parts of your dirt bike is its suspension. Your suspension can change how your bike behaves and handles and allows you to absorb impacts and bumps while the wheels of your bike are against the ground. To keep your motocross suspension in the best possible shape, you may need the following three services at some point.
- Oil change—The oil in your motocross suspension will break down just like the oil in your motor. The difference is that this occurs at a slower rate. Generally, we recommend having your oil changed every time you put in 8 to 10 hours of riding.
- Rebuild—A rebuild of your motocross suspension is a more complicated service than an oil change. During a rebuild, we will completely disassemble your shock and forks to clean, inspect, and hone the shafts. We will also replace any worn-out seal heads, fork seals, and other damaged parts. In most cases, you should have a rebuild done after every 10 to 15 hours of riding.
- Revalve—A revalve involves customizing your motocross suspension according to your riding type and riding ability. During the revalve process, we disassemble your bike’s valving and make changes needed to the stacks based on your riding type, weight, and height. After you have a revalve service done, the next thing you should do is have a rebuild done following the next 12 to 15 hours of riding.
