PostSubject: Fork service in So Calif   Fri Jul 22, 2016 3:58 pm

I have about 8,000 miles on my GRiSO and I would like to get the forks serviced.
Does anyone know of a skilled fork shop in So Cal? Don't really want to take them to my dealer and they are not Italian
(so I have heard) anyway.

I don't want to do the job my self, lazy and unskilled.

Thanks!

Scott at MotoServizio in Signal Hill is the best wrench I've ever met. He's a Duc specialist but he'll make quick work of GRiSO forks just the same:

He's a one man shop in high demand, so you may have to leave him a voicemail and wait for a call back. He's the best and cheaper than he ought to be.

The dealer does Italian but isn't all that trustworthy

Lazy stops me everytime!

Thanks, Will check Scott out.

The forks used in the GRiSO's are common-as-muck Showas. They are actually a damned fine fork and very tuneable. The bi issue with them is that they are under sprung and grossly over damped. The good news is of course that because they are standard figment to just about every Japanese bike with any sporting pretensions any half way decent suspension specialist should be able to service and re-val e them in their sleep with one hand tied behind their back and a chilli sauce coated butt-plug inserted!

Yep, just put Showa's on Bella for that exact same reason.
