Services

NOTE: Service is not available for every fork, shock or seatpost.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle almost every job, but spare parts availability, actual servicablility, and particularly obscure pieces would need to be considered before a service can be accepted.

Parts that will not be considered include, but are not limited to: Cannondale DYAD pull shocks, Lefty, Headshok, EXT, Push, Specialized Brain etc.

If you're unsure, please reach out at hello@raceservicesuspension.com to discuss your options!

Fork Services

Basic Service

This is the minimum charge. Includes inspection, cleaning, lubrication and oils as needed. All aspects of the fork are checked and returned to spec. This is recommended every 50 hours by most manufacturers, and many forks can last years without needing more than this service periodically.

€80

+ A-la-carte

Even if you keep your seals and oils clean, things can go wrong. If you’re having problems, sometimes it can be solved without replacing every single seal. Solutions for typical failure points are kept in stock. Price is based on what exactly is needed.

€1-100

 

+ OEM Lower Leg Seals

Over years of keeping out all of the mud, your wiper seals might start to wear out, letting in more dirt and letting out more oil. Seal kit prices vary by manufacuter.

€15-50

+ SKF Green Lower Leg Seals

SKF Greens are pretty much the slipperiest thing in the universe. One of the most cost effective upgrades you can make.

€40-50

 

+ Full Service

Using the official service kit, the fork will be rebuilt as far as the manufacturer intended. When you are having problems, or want 101% performance, this is the service for you. Prices vary by manufacturer.

€40-100

 

+ Damper Upgrade

Did your new bike come with a Revelation, Yari or Performance series fork? You have a solid chassis, by replacing the damper to a Charger 2.1 or Grip2, you’re getting Ultimate/Factory performance for a fraction of the price of a new fork.

€250+

 

+ Steerer Tube/Stanchion De-creak

Are your stanchions or steerer tube creaking over every hit? We can solve the problem once and for all, and keep you out of the never-ending warranty loop (if you still have one!)

€40

+ Steerer Tube Replacement

If you are moving your fork to a new bike and found your steerer too short, or simply got a bit too rad, crashed and bent it, we stock a range of new steerer tubes for Fox and Rock Shox forks. We can also install straight 1 1/8″ tubes onto modern forks, your favourite bike out of the dumpster a little longer.

€150+

 

+ Stanchion Replacement

If you’ve crashed and scratched a stanchion, it doesn’t have to be game over for that fork. We carry original and aftermarket stanchions for Fox and Rock Shox forks amongst others, saving you money on replacing the entire CSU.

€150+

+ Travel Change

Most forks can have their travel changed to suit your bike, to a certain extent. Price varies between manufacturers.

€35-150

+ Bushing Burnishing/Replacement

It’s doubtful that the machine that assembled your fork cares as much about small bump sensitivity as you do. We will tolerance your bushings to the perfect diameter and roundness, so that there is less pressure and friction exerted on your stanchions. If your fork has developed play after a hard life, we can install new bushings for you.

€30+

Shock Services

Basic Service

This is the minimum charge. Includes inspection, cleaning, lubrication and oils as needed. All aspects of the shock are checked and returned to spec. Air will be bled from the damping circuit if neeeded and IFP pressure set. This is recommended every 50 hours by most manufacturers, and many shocks can last years without needing more than this service periodically.

€80

+ A-la-carte

Even if you keep your seals and oils clean, things can go wrong. If you’re having problems, sometimes it can be solved without replacing every single seal. Solutions for typical failure points are kept in stock. Price is based on what exactly is needed.

€1-100

 

+ Air Can Seals

Your air can is the first line of defence against the outside world, and contributes the most toward friction inside your shock.

€15-50

+ Full Service

Using the official service kit, the shock will be rebuilt as far as the manufacturer intended. When you are having problems, or want 101% performance, this is the service for you. Prices vary by manufacturer.

€60-100

 

+ Travel Change

Most shocks are incredibly modular, and within a few reasonable constraints, can be modified in most ways to fit your new frame. Stroke lengths can be modified and eyelets can be changed to/from bearings.

€15-50

+ Damping Upgrade

The most recent crop of shocks, with the correct parts, are able to be upgraded from Select/Performance level to Ultimate/Factory specifications, with lockouts and compression adjusters.

€75+

 

Seatpost Services

Basic Service

This is the minimum charge. Includes inspection, cleaning, lubrication and oils as needed. All aspects of the post are checked and returned to spec.

€50

 

+ Full Service

Using the official service kit, the shock will be rebuilt as far as the manufacturer intended (for non-cartridge type posts). Prices vary by manufacturer.

€75+

 

Reverb Service

Does your Rockshox Reverb resemble a pogo stick instead of a seatpost? We can get rid of the air in your oil, and either service the post completely, or just replace the parts that will work to prevent it happening again.

€50+
