I checked your website and I noticed that you do not work on Honda's. I was hoping that you did, I have a XR650L the I installed CRFx's on and I was hoping to get the setup dialed in.

So I am a pretty heavy guy. 6'3" 250 lbs. My wife is 120 lbs. I bought a 800gs with hopes of some 2 up fun. A tall order I know, but the f800 is so versatile. I am thinking, to be safe I will need the touratech extreme rear shock. Do you think front forks would be a Need as well? I like pavement and the gravel roads two up, but kick her off in the rough stuff. I also like riding some off-road alone. Do you need a shock brace as well with the extreme? 2013 f800gs

Lonestar I work on Honda's, alot of them honestly. I'll shoot over a PM for more details.
The website is in the process of getting a complete makeover as it was outdated the day it went live. Should be a few weeks before we get a rough draft.

COBDR results

So, I got back last Friday from the COBDR. All I can say is OMFG the front was awesome!!!!!!!!!! It handled everything, and I do mean everything. If only I had the coin for the rear. I will say this, my stock rear outlived a newly rebuilt Racetech G3 shock. Sure glad I followed Alex's advice to skip that downgrade

Wow, haven't been hearing very many good things about Racetech.

2013 Touratech Rally

Great riding with you Alex! And camping out with you guys was beyond fun. Thanks! And the F800GS is so dialed now - one click of the rebound on the forks and all the handlebar feedback disappeared. Beautiful!

Thumb Thanks Alex!

Great to have a local suspension guy with a can-do attitude that knows what he's doing! I have an '06 Beta Rev-3 trials bike that uses Paioli suspension. The rear shock was leaking and in need of a makeover! My bike was dead-in-the-water without a shock. Apparently Paioli rebuild kits are on permanent back order and NONE of the trials-specific outfits I contacted in the USA could (or wanted to) help . Iain at Touratech USA suggested I call Alex at Konflict: "No problem send me your shock we'll fix it!" How refreshing to hear! I'd called several well-known suspension companies with no luck.

Alex couldn't find a new seal the proper dimensions but sourced a seal that was close and had the seal holder machined to fit the new (& more common) seal. New oil, re-charged and good-to-go!

Thanks heaps Alex!

I am wondering if you could rebuild klr 250 shocks. Seems to be a common problem as I found out by searching for a solution to my wimpy, old shock.

WOW! Is all I can say...

So it has taken me some time to chime in but I needed to give the suspension some real life testing to make sure I know what I am talking about...because make no mistake, Alex is a frickin' genius

We all know how bad the stock suspension is on the F800...crap! When I installed the front suspension that Alex had set up for me I immediately noticed a difference. My riding is mostly off road but I do a lot of pavement to get to the dirt so I need both to perform well. Also I ride with luggage A LOT (it's kinda my job) and a passenger (kids) so those weight additions had to be kept in mind. I now have almost 7,000 miles on the suspension and I must say I am absolutely thrilled! By far the best investment I have made for my bike. I also had Alex tune the Touratech rear shock as well. That thing is awesome! I just did 1600 miles with 50 lbs of luggage and my son on the back (he weighs 120 lbs with luggage). We did some pretty good off road jeep trails and plenty of two track. The suspension was flawless and never bottomed once!

I am no expert rider or suspension guru but I can tell you this is awesome! Thanks to Alex and crew for a great job and making me a happier rider

Good news Dusty. How long did it take Alex to turn round your forks. He has had mine for a week now and I'm itching to try them out. I have a nice road all lined up. It is all busted baby head boulders. Surely they cant handle that.

His time frame was 4-5 weeks I believe and he delivered!
