Shocks being sent to Dan Kyle for upgrades

Usually I wouldn't announce such a trivial thing because I think DK racing has a great reputation with the RC crowd, but Liz who took my call Friday had me Laughing my ass off!

Let's face it we RC owners are a bit different breed (Damn proud of it to) and when I called to get have a few questions answered about shipping and turnaround Liz answered the phone and she was so funny and entertaining poking fun of posers and the OCD'ness of us RC owners I lost track of time and was late for a meeting. Anyway just a another great experience in Customer Service so it deserves a shout. The best part is - did I mention I'm having my shocks rebuilt and upgraded by DK Racing??? Now the wait while I'm sitting in FL with 70 degree Saturdays, oh well. Cheers guys.

Awesome! What is the turn around time for the fork rework? I have an Ohlins from DK, but rebuilt my forks with Racetech bits. I'm happy at the moment, but always look forward to having other options.

About one week right now as I have virtually no backlog. That can change very quickly though as it is a dynamic business and solely dependent on how many people start sending their stuff in for service.

Nobody touches my suspension but Mike @ Kyle Racing. Have had multiple sets of forks and shocks done through Kyle Racing, always top notch.

Ohlins really is the gold standard.

Turn around was less than two weeks and that's east coast to west coast - and back again after the work and it's a night and day difference in the feel and handling. Now if I could recover more quickly from Knee surgery I'll be back on it abusing it like it owes me money

Excellent choice. I did the same thing, then used the suspension tuning guide from Mike's Rogue Mods page and one of my favorite canyon roads to get them all dialed in. The difference is nothing less than amazing.
