I did not have similar results through him. He came highly recommended by a friend and forum member. Fork seals, fork oil change, resprung front end, and rebound/compression set for my weight. IIRC, right at $400..

He did the work, them I rode home. He calls me the next morning to ask me to check if he had tightened all the bolts. I went and looked, and no, he didn't. All of the front caliper bolts (both sides) were less than finger tight, and the axle pinch bolts were barely touching. He came over to my place on his way to work and tightened them.. He also managed to scrape the fuck out of the finish of my right side bar by rushing the job. I didn't say anything, because my buddy likes him, and the bike does feel great on the new front springs. I'll deal with the unprofessional scrapes and mistakes as long as it works in the end.

Fast forward about a month, and less than 1000 miles, and the same fork seal is weeping. If I'd have wanted a half assed, amateur job done, I could have saved all that money and done it myself. I'm really on the fence about contacting him again to have him fix what he clearly fucked up the first time, but I don't think I trust him enough to let him touch my bike again. He could have seriously injured me, or worse, by forgetting to tighten those bolts.

The entire GP Suspension operation was purchased by KFG Racing in Auburn wich is owned by local WMRRA rider Barry Wressel.

I had Dave at Fluid Suspension work on my R1 years ago. I would have no problem having him work on any of my bikes. Good price and great service.

On the other hand, I had GP suspension in Oregon City work on my DRZ. Never again. Their service was 3rd rate. They didn't leave a good impression on me.

Since Dave doesn't seem to be doing the suspension anymore for Fluid Suspension I will most likely give KFG a call when my Tuono suspension needs work.

I believe Dave is busy during the race season working with Larry Peagram's AMA team so he is farming the work out to Brian. That's the impression I got?

This guy works out of his garage. Said he did some racing a few years ago. Taller blond guy named Brian Trudeau. His shop is called fluid suspension, not fluid suspension science.

Interesting. My experiences was that not only did Brian set my bike up right, he was concerned how the results looked.
