Who in Houston can rebuild the front Forks on my Ducati?

I have an 06 S2R 800 and the front isn't adjustable. I'm like 190lbs and they are set up for a little European guy I guess .

Anyway, I'd like to re-spring them and I guess revalve them too (if this is necessary).

Anyone around here good at this? Or should I just ship them off and get them done for like $350? Who has done yours?


Thanks,
Joe

We can get you taken care of. Just give me a call tomorrow at the shop and we can discuss what style of riding you do and what modifications will be necessary.

+1 andy worked absolute magic on my zx7r front end. I felt likei could stick the nose of that thing anywhere i wanted hard and fast. and it would track around a corner with ease.

Ok, might not be tomorrow though. You might remember my Tangerine Monster with the broken turn signal I came by and got a tire a couple weeks ago.
I also need to get a damper.

Metric Motorcycles in the Heights is certified Ducati, and they are also certified Ohlins.

We are lucky to have some really good folks in the service industry around here. Motorcycles Unlimited is another quality organization who will work hard for your business.

Location may play a part in your decision as well, so if one is closer, you can patronize their business based on location.

Andy has built my suspensions on my race bikes since Billy Weise left, Patrick and Brandon at Motorcycles Unlimited have tuned my suspension at the track since then too.

Good folks all around!

Marzocchi 43 mm upside-down fork is what I have and I heard I can only respring them and change to a different oil. Hmm, I might have to get the innerds changed completely.

^^^ have you tried talking to Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited yet?

i'm sure he has a lot of knowledge with Ducati's as well as bikes....as he owns a Ducati of his own. and he's got all the NICE goodies on all his bikes as well.

They deal direct with Ohlins and I know they are RaceTech Certified, maybe Ohlins as well, not sure on Ohlins though.
They are the only ones that touch my bikes.
