XR Repairs, Shock Work on S.F. Peninsula?

Recommended Posts

There used to be a shock rebuilder in the San Francisco Bay Area that reportedly did great work on shocks. I bought a 1999 XR250R earlier this year and took it to the shop once for a checkup, new tires and a valve adjustment. They did a good job and within the estimate, but the shop rates are very high in this area.

Anybody have any leads on an independent shop (or even a rider/racer who is qualified to work on bikes) on the San Francisco Peninsula? The previous owne of my bike weighed way less than me and the shock and sag is setup for her, as well as the front end.

Thanks for any info.

These guys know XRs, and the owner John loves to talk shop over the phone. They're not in the Bay area but at least on the west coast. Shipping a shock is a lot easier than forks, I will send my shock to them for revalve when I get around to it.

There seem to be more suspension shops in the Santa Cruz area.

You might post in the California forum.

A lot of my club guys use a local mechanic, who charges rates similar to shops as he is worth it.
