Ohlins forks

From a basic set up with the components you have fitted to full race upgrades…we help you choose the best setup for your needs and application. It could be improvements for road applications or perhaps something that improves your confidence and lap times on a trackday or what about a full race setup when lap times really count ?

You wouldn’t believe how many riders never adjust their suspension…EVER or ever have their suspension serviced….its such a waste and deprives them of a far more involved and satisfying experience.

Custom fork re-valve and re-spring

Fork, yoke and swing arm upgrades

Aprilia Servicing

Aprilia Services So what’s involved ?

No two Aprilia,s arrive in our workshop the same, so at Dragon motorbikes we tailor the servicing to fit your bike perfectly after completing a detailed evaluation.

If you have ridden 3000 miles in 2 years you won’t need as much done as a rider who has covered 12,000, equally 6000 track miles is a long way so we are happy to adjust the service items to suit you and your Aprilia.

Aprilias are scheduled for servicing every 12 months depending on model and mileage and of course usage e.g. road use track day or race, not everyone covers the same mileage every year, so we need to adjust the servicing accordingly.

Why Choose Us then ? Well we have the 3 Ps – Personal, Professional & Passionate

Our fully flexible servicing helps no end and following a multi point evaluation we can advise and discuss just what YOUR Aprilia needs, rather than just go by the recommended service list, this keeps your bill sensible too!
