So I am thinking of purchasing a WR but I am trying to figure out who does good suspension work for desert type riding, IE: Whoops,Sand,Rocks. I currently have my suspension setup by Precision concepts for my honda and it is freakin awesome! So who all know what might be available out there for the Wr's? I am thinking either a 08 or 07 wr450.


I have looked in to Rec-Tech but I have not been happy with them in the past.

Thanks

IVE HAD XR600'S-DRZ400 AND NOW WR450 AND WON'T HAVE ANYONE BUT DEWAYNE JONES SUSPENSION [SO.CAL] SET IT UP...:worthy:

THE BAD THING ABOUT SOME OF THE BIGGER SUSPENSION SHOPS IS THEY HAVE A LOT OF NEW GUYS "LEARNING" THE TRADE.:thumbsdn:

ONLY DEWAYNE HIMSELF WILL EVER WORK ON YOUR STUFF,NOT SOME KID THAT WAS WORKING AT TACO BELL LAST WEEK!:eek:

I figured i would take it Precision because I like the work they do and I know them. I just thought I might ask what you guys are using.

I've tried several different shops in and around So Cal...RG3, Shock Therapy, ENZO and none of them even came close to Daryl @ ACME Suspension. 760-949-6794. He does lots of desert racer and riders suspenson and he knows how to make the Kayaba's work very well.

You always have to find the place that works for you. ESP was very good for me. I followed the many other recommendations that I got.

The main thing is to get the suspension done by a qualified professional. You're ankles, knees and back will thank you for it.

ESP is a great place, he did my 06 WR450. George rides too. He's been revalving suspensions since the early 80's.
