The Motorcycle Suspension School by Reactive Suspension is the UK's only motorcycle suspension school where students learn how to service and modify their suspension through hands-on experience.
The courses are suited to a wide range of abilities from enthusiasts wanting to service their own suspension, through to professionals wanting to advance their knowledge.
Putting the skills learnt into practice in the purpose-built workshop is a unique feature that allows students to get their hands oily doing the work themselves. This is not a course where you watch a demonstration, then forget everything on the journey home.
Courses can be taken individually or over consecutive days.
The topics covered include:
- Fork & Shock Design
- Fork & Shock Function and Operation
- Hands on Workshop Practice, Servicing and Re-Valving Forks and Shocks
- Suspension Theory
- Shim Stack & Piston Operation & Design
- Dynamics and Geometry
- Suspension Setting and Adjustments for Road and Off Road
- Fork and Shock Dyno Testing and Analysis
Previous course attendees have gone on to add suspension services to their exisiting business or start suspension companies of their own. University students have found that having the specialist knowledge gained on the courses is a useful addition to their CV's.
