Who has used Race Tech's shop service?

I've never tried them before.
Contemplating sending my 05 1K rear shock for gold valve and service?
Don't want to spend a fortune on a new shock for my streetbike.
I've heard a properly revalved rear shock is on par with more expensive aftermarkets.

I had the full service done on both my fork and shock. I sent it to them in California. $1200 in all. I have them carte blanche to do whatever was needed. Night and day difference and their customer service was excellent. Worth every penny.

FYI: This is on a dedicated track bike.

Thanks Chuck, that seals it. Im going to send that shock in.
I actually ordered a spare for 35 dollars so I can keep riding in the meanwhile.

I plan on having them do a full rebuild to mine later this year early next year, drop the bike off and mosey around.
