Ohlins rear needing rebuilt.

Hi,

The rear Ohlins on my 748sp has started weeping so I'm looking at a service/rebuild. Anybody got any recommendations about where to go - or not to go? I've been looking at Brooks Suspension.

Thanks

A friend of mine has his 851 Ohlins rebuilt by this man:

He repairs and sets up suspension for Thundersport GB. My friend said the shock is brilliant now.

In the North East, I had my rear Ohlins serviced by:

and was really happy at the result for 120.


Cheers - Frank

I can recommend MCT Suspension in Stowmarket, Suffolk.
They do mail order and even though we live close we always send by post/courier anyway!

Thanks guys.

I'll use one of your recommendations. Probably will have to be next month now as I've just been presented with an invoice for my daughters ballet tuition fees.
