KYB Shock Absorber Rebuild & Repair Service


Brook Suspension is Europe's leading independent, motorcycle suspension specialist. We service, rebuild and repair OEM motorcycle shock absorbers from the likes of Showa, KYB, WP and Ohlins. We also have accreditations from aftermarket manufacturers such as Nitron (Technical Centre), K-Tech (Premier Dealer & UK Distributor) and Andreani (the UK's only Gold Partner).


Our service is simple - you send us your loose shock absorber, we refurbish it to the very highest standard and then return it to you with Fedex extended liability on a next-day service. Once it arrives back with you, it is ready to be fitted back on the bike with no other work required.

Our service includes:

  • Disassembly of shock absorber including all internal parts
  • Inspection of all parts for wear or damage
  • Inspection of piston rod for straightness and polish
  • Strip and thorough clean of piston assemblies
  • Replace all oil seals, dust seals, O-rings and bushes
  • Rebuild shock absorber with high quality Motul Factory Line shock oil
  • Charge with Nitrogen

When sending us your shock absorber, remember the following:

  • Prices quoted are for a single shock absorber and include VAT. Our twin shock service is twice the cost
  • Please ensure you include a note with your full name, telephone number, email address, make/model/year of bike and a list of the services required
  • Make sure that the shock is reasonably clean before they are packed up, to avoid any additional cleaning charges
  • Our standard service does not include the cost of bushes/bearings, we cover the hydraulic element of the shock only
  • Anything over and above the aforementioned will be charged at the rate as per the optional extras on our website
