50mm Shiver help
I have a 2008 te 450 with the 50mm shiver fork. I recently blew a fork seal and thought it would be a great time to have RMR rebuilt the forks and re-spring them for my weight.
I have called twice and spoke to them, both times they have said they would call me"right back" with parts availability as I don't want to have my bike down for a long time.
I wanted to have this don't for the gnarly ride and now I am hoping to just have the fork seal fixed.
Does anyone know of a shop that could do any or all of this work, preferably out the valley?
I could try Pac -Yam but I'm not sure how much experience they have with this work.

Send them to GP Moto in Kamloops or Rider's Edge in Vernon. GP Moto uses Rider's Edge components.

Send them to STS in Nanaimo -
i second Rider's Edge in Vernon. Ian is a masters PN rider and has been a suspension guru for years. I sent him my 50mm zokes from my wr250 as well last year. He has a pattented base valve for that fork he will change out for you as well when he revalves it allow better oil movement.
Apperently the 50mm is a piece of sh!t fork and that's why they only ran them for a few years and have gone to KYB and now back to 48mm closed carthridge zokes. But lucky you, you're stuck with it just like me. It's hard to tune them and they will blow fork seals more often then other forks cause of the size and the fact it's open carthridge.
The only hasle is you have to spend an extra $60 for shipping there and back.
