Richard Wilk of MX1 Suspension has been at the game for decades and has a knack for tuning motocross, off-road and supermoto suspension. MX1 is already up to speed with with the all-new air spring fork and has settings for the coil-less jobs. They pretty much service all brands of moto suspension from simple oil changes, complete revalve to complete rebuilds if needed. In addition to suspension service, they also offer specialized Carburetor Mods and aftermarket products over at their sister shop Dick’s Racing.
Here we had a 2013 Honda CRF450R tuned up. The goal was to smooth out the fork in the chop and small bumps and offer more bottoming resistance toward the latter part of the stroke. The shock was sprung for a heavier rider with a 5.9 spring and the valving was tuned to offer better rebound control throughout the stroke.
FROM THE MX1 Suspension:
When it comes to CRF suspension, MX1 has you covered. Whether it’s the 02-08 Showa components, or the newer 09-12 KYB components on the 450, 2010-13 CRF 250 Showa stuff or even the latest Air Forks on the all new 2013 CRF450, you can count on MX1 to deliver superb performance. We have been racing CRFs from the beginning and have spent countless hours testing our specs. We are sure you will be thrilled with the results.
2002-08 all CR/CRF

($195 + oil) If you want the seals/bushings replaced, add ($45 + parts) stiffer springs if required are ($110)
SHOCK - Is taken apart, cleaned, and revalved to match the types of tracks you ride as well as your skill level and weight. Rebound damping is matched to the correct spring rate.
