Anyone have recommendations for a place in SLC where I can get my DRZ400 suspension upgraded/tuned?

I think I'm heading down to let my kid race then off to st george to go ride. Your welcome to come along.

There's a guy in American Fork that I used for a KTM and there's a guy in SLC that I spoke with about doing some work. I'd have to look them up if you're not able to find them.

I have a room at the Eureka reserved for Friday and Sat night. A couple of guys I work with are racing... I may just pit them and then hang out with my family down there to keep the wife happy.

Appreciate the offer and would love to go with if you get down there another weekend this winter/spring. Too many other obligations on the 26-27th weekend.

Thanks - I have called around a bit and no one has been able to point me in the right direction.

Any info (closest to SLC the better) you could get me would be greatly appreciated

I used a guy in Bountiful and he did good job on my KTM. Not sure if he works on Suzuki but probably worth a call.

Hey guys,
I have a 2X Joe Rocket vented jacket and a couple of Olympia liners I don't need. If anyone needs them give a shout.

Yeah I'm pumped. I had to pull my engine and there were little things on the KTM that I'd never done like rear sing arm bearings etc. Motos are just so simple, it's awesome. So I was psyched to take it completely apart and see how easy it was to put back together (which is super easy). I'm also wiring it up to be street legal finally also, using stuff off ebay this time. My goal was to be less than $100 into wiring it street legal with better components than the RM ATV kit...

Powder Coater I used was Armor Coating in SLC, which did an awesome job. My new favorite powder coater. Another good one is Utah Powder Coatings down in Utah County too. I used an imitation KTM color from Sherwin Williams that was about $200, or I could have ordered the genuine color for about $250. Discussed in depth here...

Did you do a full 360 or just 180? I never know what is best...
