TTR250 shock absorber repair/refurbishment/service
Permalink  
 


At long last there is a much-respected suspension tuner offering the service - see  http://www.gibbsperformance.co.uk/workshop-services.aspx  at a sensible price biggrinbiggrin

Justin can be contacted by phone on 01752 846888

Justin Gibbs is well known in TRF, enduro and MX community in Devon and Cornwall and has a superb reputation.

We gave Justin a knackered TTR rear shock absorber to look at a few weeks ago and the repaired item is 100%. It includes the all-important new seal head which other firms offering a repair service don't include.

So if your rear end starts to sag or pogo (sorry vicar) then you know what to do wink

How much does it cost to get it done and postage cost to send the shock there

Much depends on whether your shock just needs an oil change and re-gas, a new seal head, bump stop and/or the rod re-chroming (expensive!).

Give Justin a ring on 01752 846888 tomorrow

This is what's in the FAQ:

Refurbishing a TTR rear shock absorber. The part number of the rear shock is 5GF-22210-00-P0 but a new one is very expensive so repairs are usually cost effective! In the UK, Justin Gibbs at Saltash offers a superb service. Click here for details. Justin is also able to alter the ride height of the shock absorber if required. A DIY approach is described here!

 

Parts for forks and shock. Race Tech sell rebuild parts for the front forks and the rear shock inc. the seal head, shock shaft bushing, bottom-out bumper, and reservoir bladder - click here for prices etc. 

 

Greywulf's web page is very interesting but it doesn't tempt me to have a go myself! 

Totally TTRs now sell the seal head if you fancied having a go yourself - see here

Just for info' Ray's Off Road Bikes in Banham Norfolk rebuilds rear shocks - properly - 01953-888348. He is always very busy but if you make a date with him for work and return its a firm deal.

.....shameless plug as he is a good friend of mine....68 years old, ex Bavins, pleasantly crusty, been there done it all, with an enviously good reputation in Norfolk and Suffolk. One man band, cheap, honest, rides a stunning 100% non-original TY175 very well and I'm dreading the day he retires.

I'm sure anyone competing MX, Enduro around South Norfolk/ Suffolk will have heard of Ray so no need to take my word for it....he won't thank me for the extra work but decent & cheap suspension work is hard to find.

hope this helps someone?
