Since it's foundation in 1983, Stadium has been involved into the evolution of the sport at the highest level of competition in several countries. We have been working since then with top racers, engineers, manufacturers, team managers and riders to develop a complete line of product and services. they, without a doubt, will allow you to optimise your performance an skill bringing you to your optimal level of riding, performance an therefore enjoyment of the sport you love so much, the same way they contributed to win many championships, year after year.
After all these years of development, here is what we can offer you to dial-in or repair your motorcycle:
-complete maintenance, fluid change, shaft polishing, cleaning and servicing.
-Sealhead replacement and servicing with our own designed sealheads. Our sealheads
have a unique lubricated bushing, dual oil sealing design. This allows a lower shaft friction for less stiction and longer sealhead/shaft life. It also is needed to be replaced if a shock would be leaking or would have some wear in its guide bushing
and - Custom valving with our optimised flow pistons and PTFE-Turcite friction band.
Obviously, the OEM manufacturers cant produce on a large quantity, a motorcycle that will suite everyone's needs. That's why we will install our parts. These allow a precise suspension setup tuned for your motorcycle, weight and application gaining in comfort, traction speed.
We often shorten or change the length of a shock to adapt the bike's height for a shorter rider or to lower the center of gravity. It results in less falls in technical sections and more confidence in handling. This operation is fully reversible to it’s original length if a taller rider would use the motorcycle afterwards.
-Spring replacement. The rear spring needs to be at a precise rate to keep the motorcycle in the correct geometry, depending on the rider weight. It will allow the bike to be in the exact spec range of race sag and static sag. Each model of bike has its own specs of sag
and static sag, directly affecting the bike's handling. Our springs are made of top quality chrome-silicone steel material providing a constant rate thru its long lifetime. Please note that NOTHING PRODUCED, INSTALLED OR SOLD BY STADIUM is made in China.
-Bladder system reservoir
In the case of certain shock systems,(WP, Sachs, Ohlins etc...) the fluid and nitrogen are separated by an IFP (internal floating piston). This system generates more friction and heat from the displacement of the IFP. In this case the shock needs a bigger impact for its initial displacement resulting in more mechanical hit. The shock would also fade earlier and the fluid has a shorter life because of higher operating temperature.
To solve these issues, we install bladder system reservoir providing a more sensitive reactivity, therefore a plusher ride also improving traction.
-Complete maintenance, cleaning and fluid change. We use synthetic fork fluids only with anti scuffing/anti wear additives. Of course, fluid viscosity and levels is always according to precise specs.
-oil/dust seal replacement, tube polishing and inspection, bushing inspection or replacement and complete maintenance.
-spring replacement if rate is incorrect or wear is detected. We always measure the spring rate with our certified digital scale. We would then recommend to install the right springs if not appropriate.
-Custom valving ,with our flow optimised cartridge pistons, for weight and application.
Here again, manufacturers can't set a motorcycle for everyone's specific needs.
Tuning the forks for you will again result in a easier and much more efficient ride in terms of speed and handling and physical fatigue.
-lowering/ length modification. We often shorten forks to lower bikes for shorter riders or
to lower the center of gravity. Here again, when combined with rear lowering, will provide an easier handling in technical sections and more confident ride.
This process is always reversible to it's original length if a taller rider would use the motorcycle afterwards.
-replacement parts, specific repairs and projects, chrome re-plating, machining, welding etc(tubes, legs, bushings, seals, damping rods, cartridges etc..) Available for most forks.
-Neoprene fork protectors can be installed to prevent dirt accumulation behind the dust seals. By keeping away undesired abrasive dirt, clay and sand, the seals, bushings and chromed tubes have a much longer life operating in clean conditions.
