Damper Maintenance and Servicing

Just like most race car/bike parts, a damper's internals are a consumable item and need to be maintained at regular intervals to maximise its performance.  Although we use the best quality oil available to minimise the effects of wear, it still degrades with increased usage, so regular oil changes are required. The oil seals and O-rings too are of the highest quality but should be replaced with the oil along with the main piston shims, which also lose performance with fatigue and wear.

Full Service £150.00 excl VAT per damper + additional cost for damaged parts replacement

  • Complete strip down, thoroughly clean, and inspection for damage of the dampers components
  • Replacement of main piston valving shims and Compression adjuster Shims
  • Complete oil change
  • Replacement of all O-rings and oil seals
  • Fresh Nitrogen gas Change
  • Dyno check
  • Performance graphs printouts  


Full Service is ideal at the beginning of a race season and at the mid-season break to ensure maximum competitive performance. A guide for those not competing in a race series would be after 30 hours of track time or yearly.     

Damper Re-valve £75.00 excl VAT per damper

  • Valving development time
  • Dyno checks
  • New Shims 
  • Performance graphs printouts 


Damper re-valve enables performance to be maximized for your application, it is the necessary progression of performance, vehicle development, weight reduction, set up or even a changing track are factors that could require your suspension to be re-valved.  Driver/Riders style and preferences is an additional factor especially in changing vehicle.  Key advantage of a re-valve is they tuning the damper using the dyno to result in the optimum damper for your speciation.      

Matching a Pair of Dampers £64.00 excl VAT

  • Dyno checks
  • New Shims 
  • Performance graphs printouts 


Unforeseen circumstances could lead you to have a mismatch pair of dampers or you require a second set for spares during the race weekend.  This is an assured way to match performance between dampers.
