Shock shaft needs a regrind and hard chroming - who does this work please?
Permalink  
 


My brother-in-law's (Keith) shock started to leak oil. We just pulled it out and cleaned it up and, sadly, the chrome is damaged on the shock shaft.
 
Can anyone recommend from personal experience a reliable firm to regrind and rechrome it please?
 
Alternatively has anyone got a shaft in good condition they would sell either on its own or with the rest of the shock?

Brian this is the outfit (Bristol based) that Henry Cole has used on The Motorbike Show for some of his restoration projects. Might be worth an enquiry.

After a lot of research, Keith found a suspension specialist who said they farmed this sort of work out. Keith was lucky enough that they told him who they used wink

The firm is Dynasurf, Springvale Industrial Estate Millbuck Way, Sandbach CW11 3GQ

The shaft has just been returned and looks perfect.

Total cost was £80.33 (Carriage up £5.33 using Evri, carriage back £15.00, re-chrome £60.00)

As new shock absorbers are no longer available from Yamaha and good second-hand shocks become harder to find, this may become a solution for owners.

Hope that may help someone. 

Brian

PS All we have to do now is put it all back together again using this handy guide biggrin
