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.

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.

Just FYI I am doing a special promotion on RC51 fork rework. We have NEVER done this before and I am not really supposed to do it now, but it is slow for service work currently and I am going to do it anyway.

Free OEM Honda Seals & Bushings/Guides for the month of February when you purchase either fork option basically a $100 option for free

Type 1 Fork Service Work: Ohlins Piston Kit with Springs, Spacers and topout modifications

Type 2 Fork Service Work: Ohlins 30mm NIX Retrofit Cartridge Kit

Are you yourself in Florida now ? You told me a couple of years ago you were looking to come here.

Welcome to the East coast LDH! I'm at Eglin AFB on the Gulf coast of Florida. I'm glad to know there's a much closer option for RC51 parts & service instead of ordering/ shipping to & from Cali! Plus a much better state to reside in with beautiful beaches, lower taxes & much less lock down BS!
