Service – wellbeing for suspension
No one will deny that the oil in the engine of any car or motorcycle needs to be changed regularly. But what about the suspension?
Just as the oil in an engine needs to be replaced as part of a maintenance plan the oil in a damper should be exchanged because as with the engine oil it deals with extreme pressure, temperatures and friction. With each stroke of travel, the smooth surfaces inside your suspension pick up microscopic particles of debris. Those particles are drawn into the oil and over time contaminate the interior passageways and valves. As the hours of use accumulate, so does the contamination.
Without regular service, your high-performance suspension will begin to lose its ability to generate damping forces. To keep your investment performing at the highest level, frequent servicing is necessary.
