I ride both of these bikes in extremely rocky technical single track conditions in both Montana and Idaho. With stock suspension I was experiencing defection on both the front and rear of the bike, which was frustrating. My philosophy is I simply want to ride my bike and I want it to work right. I don’t want to have to think about my suspension, I just want it to work properly. Like most guys out there suspension is a bit of a mystery, and I decided to get both bikes fixed.
After a ton of research, asking friends and strangers-I sent both bikes to Stillwell Performance, mainly because of their reputation. Between friends that have had work done there and the excellent comments on sites like KTM Talk I called and spoke with them. They really took the time to understand what I was looking for, and their diagnosis was spot on.
Both bikes are superb. How they approached each bike to get the same incredible result was a bit different. I know they used their new Pro Valves, springs, valving etc. But what is most important to me is that both machines are fantastic off road. Very planted feeling, silky smooth in the rocks and have great progression on faster stuff. Awesome results.
Stillwell Performance-don’t trust anyone else!
