The Motorcycle Suspension School courses allow you to get hands on experience in a purpose built workshop, putting into practice the skills learned, under the guidance of a trained professional.
You will be learning in a purpose-built workshop, fully equipped for fork and shock servicing. This is the perfect place to learn and develop your skills, with individual workstations and tool boxes. Furthermore, you needn’t worry about making the inevitable amount of mess, as the workshop was designed to withstand this. We also have a spacious lecture area, which is used for presentations and the theory side of the courses. There is also a comfortable relaxation room upstairs for tea, coffee, and lunch.
Health and Safety
Please note that the courses undertaken at Reactive Suspension are undertaken at your own risk. We have taken advice on the insurance necessary to run these courses and unfortunately taking out insurance to cover all eventualities would have at least tripled the course fees. Our public liability insurance covers you for anything that may happen that is our responsibility, but we trust our students to work sensibly with consideration for themselves and the others in the group. We have a full risk assessment document that we can send you a copy of should you wish to see it and you will be given training in the correct procedures to carry out the work safely. Safety glasses, goggles, gloves etc. will be provided for your use. We will gladly refund the course fees if you are not happy with this arrangement but we would much rather run the courses under this arrangement than not at all.
The fork and shock service courses are hands-on practical courses, it is impossible not to get oily during the procedures undertaken. There are oil resistant aprons for students to use, these often though don’t give the full body protection that can sometimes be necessary. It is recommended that you wear old clothing, or bring a full boiler suit with you. We would also recommend you bring your own safety footwear, or old stout shoes, that you’re quite happy to spill oil over.
A buffet lunch will be provided. Please contact us if you have any dietary requirements. Tea and coffee will be available all day.
