A dirt bike, just like any other machine, undergoes wear and tear, meaning that its parts will eventually need to be replaced and occasionally whole systems will need to be rebuilt. One part of a dirt bike that is under a lot of stress is the forks, so it’s not surprising that they need to be replaced or rebuilt on a regular basis. Our team here at Art of War Suspension Technologies wants to help you take the best possible care of your bike, and we provide the dirt bike fork rebuild services to do just that. In this article, we will provide a brief overview of how this process works so that you can know what to expect.
First, we check the compression and rebound clickers. Then, we remove the fork body and drain the suspension fluid. After that, we remove all the seals and bushings from the fork assembly and cartridge. Once everything is disassembled, we check each component for damage, and thoroughly clean and dry it to get it ready to be put back together.
The next step in the dirt bike fork rebuild process is to refill the cartridge with suspension fluid. Then, we install the compression assembly and bleed all the air out of the cartridge. We check the dampening rod, then install new seals and a new spring. The last steps in the dirt bike fork rebuild process are to install the rebound valve and reset the clickers.
