Need repair help

I am posting for a friend. He was in some kind of accident or another and his front suspension is messed up a bit, the forks just are not rebounding the way they should be. Does anybody here know where he can get them checked out? The bike is a BMW R1200C, he would just buy new forks if anything but can't find them anywhere. It might just be simpler to repair these if possible. Do we have any sponsors here that work on this kind of bike's suspension?

no we dont have any sponsors "other then the last one of LVC which is closing its doors"

other then that check out DGY "speak to dano to at least try to get there service guys to take good care of you since your a CLSB guy"

then there is 4&6 and Saftey 1st racing, both of which do these types of repairs and my past experience has been pretty darn good with them.

also, i think "Turn 1" local fixer guys with nesba also do this and you might get a discount from them if your a nesba member.

sounds like its the front shock, this bike doesnt use a typical telescopic fork.

Could be the shock, ..... it does still have forks.... could be those.

Could also be the a-arm ( telelever ) assembly in the front or it's ball joint.



I would think the fork-tubes are the most exposed.
