Bike Suspension setup

After several attempts at adjusting my suspension to my riding habits myself I decided to have Motorcycles Unlimited adjust it for me. It didn't cost much and it made a HUGE difference. For some reason I had only 20mm of rear travel and wondered why my body was always so sore after I rode. I would recommend this to anybody not just stunters.

$30.00 for a set up.
Stunt bike suspension set up is different than a street or track bike.
I've been working with Joe for a long time, and have set up a lot of stunt bike suspensions over the years.

Ive said this probably 100 times on MH alone, but DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, A SUSPENSION SET-UP IS THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO TO YOUR BIKE.

Yup, Motorcycles Unlimited tweaked my suspension for street riding. Really didn't think it was going to make a big difference but it was worth every penny. They only made minor adjustments for me but that's what pushed it over that "pretty confident" mark to leaning til bike stuffs touch

Well worth the trip to Motorcycles Unlimited to have Patrick and his guys get your bike's suspension right.
