This is a fork tune service where you send us your fork, we tune it, and we ship it back to you. Approximate turn-around time after we have your fork is 2-3 weeks.
Although the KKE is one of the better forks to come on the Surron, it's still valved for lighter bikes and riders. With this tune we will custom valve your fork for your specific weight including the weight of the Surron to drastically improve the dampening of your fork. This will give you a firmer and more controlled suspension action that stays more planted on the trail and less bounce.
Does NOT include a stiffer fork spring, unfortunately we have decided not to make a stiffer spring for the KKE due to internal physical limitations within the KKE. If you are looking for a stronger and stiffer fork, you should consider our FastAce Custom Tuned Fork which is a heavier and stronger fork built much more like a motorcycle fork.
- Thicker shims tuned for the weight of the surron
- Increased compression valving to control the weight and bumb absorption including hard landings and fast riding
- Increased rebound valving to control the heavier wheels
- New low friction fork seals by SKF
- Fresh fork oil and lubrication of moving parts
- New o-rings for your front hub
- Charged Cycle Works Fork Guard Stickers (Gold, Red, Blue, or Green
Setting Your Expectations
This is not going to make your KKE perform as good as a Dorado, DVO or other high-end fork. However, we have ridden this tune and it is dramatically better than how the KKE came from the factory brand new. This is a great upgrade for someone who is relatively happy with their KKE fork and wants to make a noticeable improvement at a modest price. If you want high end $1500+ performance then this tune service is probably not for you.
"They definitely make the hits on my hands more tolerable and feel more compliant over the rocks. I’m running zero preload on the left and only 50 psi on the right resulting in a little more than 2” of sag with me onboard. Rebound adjustment is responsive and controllable." - Mark
“Got my upgraded forks a month or so back (before they came out with the upgraded spring). Had to wait for better riding weather. I was honestly thinking that I hope these guys are legit and it does what they say - no offense guys.
Well, finally got out on the trails 2 weeks ago with my buddy on his stock DNM bike. It took literally less than a minute on our woods track to feel the difference. I couldn’t believe it. We stopped and switched bikes and he was floored. Road the rest of the day and had significantly less fatigue and wrist pain. Bike handles way better over high speed chatter and I’m riding faster with less effort.
Needless to say, I already sent out the forks on our 2nd bike (my backup / son’s bike when he’s around) for the complete rebuild with the new spring. Looking forward to an even more improved ride!” - Dave
