I want to have my suspension redone and I was wondering who you fellow Arizonan's would recommend? I heard Piper is pretty good, but have also heard the same of Pro-Action...Any ideas? Anyone else? Thanks!

Hey Clay, long time no see/hear from you.
I would go with Piper, he can make the YZ forks work with or without using the Gold Valves (he rides/races YZs).
I don't have any first hand knowledge about Pro-Action but I have had Blose do most of my Hondas in the past and was happy with his work.
Just thought about MX-Tech also. They got great reviews in the mags and John at PaloVerdeMX is doing their work here.
I guess it IS a tough choice!
BTW, I just sold my 426 and am going to a 250F.
You gonna come race this year?

I'd reccomend FCR Suspension. He makes his own valve bodies which work great. Pro-Action is good too.

Hi Bob- Good to hear from you! I have talked to Steve a few times via e-mail and he has talked me into coming back out to race again. Still have the same old problems with the shoulders but if I ride around in last place at least I will be having fun, heck, even with good shoulders I would be there so why not! I am thinking about geting the 400 re-done for now until I can get another YZF or WR 250. Give me a call and lets go riding! Thanks for the info also! :)

I'd go with Piper. The best thing about shops like Piper is if you don't like the way he valved it, he will make it right.

So you still have the 400?
Did you sell the 250?
When are you coming down to race?
I won't have a bike for a week or two but it'll be good to see you and catch up on things.
