Fast Bike Industries recommended!

Just wanted to give props to Dave Behrend at Fast Bike Industries for an awesome Ohlins suspension refresh and set up on my '06 ZX-6R. I've been racing around on my Ohlins Suspension for a couple of years now and it felt like everything was maxed out and oil was starting to leak from the fork seals. I don't know much about suspension except to ask around whom the best in the industry is and a lot of fingers is pointed to FBI.

I packaged my front forks with ohlins cartridge kit and rear ohlins shock and mailed it over to them for a refresh and authorized them to make any changes they felt was necessary. I didn't touch any of my setting. I answered all the required information he asked for and threw it in the box.

A couple weeks later, i got them back with communication what was wrong with the suspension, what was changed, and the settings the suspension was set to. I mounted it, set my pre-load based on their recommendation and went to the track. Cost was reasonable.

HOLY CRAP! My old bike handled phenomenally! I don’t ever remember my bike handling this great. I feel more confident through all the turns. Spent two days at the track and I didn't change any of the settings out of the box. If you need suspension re-work and you know how to measure and set your own pre-load, send it to these guys:

Dave rocks! He rebuilt a YZF750R Ohlins for me a couple years ago and right now he's redoing my RC51 Ohlins. Great guy, very knowledgeable.
