Printed copies of the material we learn would be cool too. So we could reference later on during days at the track. Kindof like general info and a trouble shooting guide, i.e. If your bike is doing this...- then adjust this...


Nothing fancy, just photo copies would be fine.

What ya think??

Definitely going to have a binder / tuning guide / manual.

As far as at the track. It would be problematic to have the class at the track, but, I am always available to help at a lot of the track days.

I would like the more in depth class that you spoke of like the 7-8 hr. i would love to do it ONLY IF it entails showing how to disassemble and reassemble the forks changing fork oil and just general fork service along with all the other basic tuning. maybe 200 bucks for the in depth course.












hey pat have you thought anything about that question i pmed ya???

anyone can learn how to rebuild forks by reading their bikes shop manual. it's not hard as long as you have all the speciality tools needed to complete the job. suspension tuning is much more involved and much more important to most riders.

IF, I were to do an advanced course, it would include fork assembly and disassembly, including valving and shim stacks. There's a lot of tips and tricks, as well as things to look for that are not covered in the manual.

Somebody must be psychic, because I was going to post here today that we will be having the seminar, it will be in late February or early March on a Sunday. I just need to consult the race and trackday schedules.
I'll have something posted in detail by this weekend.

Thanks for everyones interest!

Patrick is right. There is a lot of fork information missing from the manuals. They are almost worthless for front forks valves.

I'm not talking a standard build I'm talking shims and all that. I can do a standard build but a performance set up i can't do.

I'd be interested as well-obviously depending upon the day-but if this were held say 4 times a year I can promise I would make one.
