Re: Dale 'E' O Engineering DOES suspension!

My turn to hop on the bandwagon! I'm 6' and come in at, a modest, 225 lbs. Intermediate rider, mostly desert, and an occasional trip up to Kennedy Meadows, or Frazier Park. I ride a '10 570Fe, that I love, but just wasn't getting the response from the suspension that I wanted. I had replaced fork and shock springs, according to my weight, and had made several adjustments to forks and shock, but never getting it close to being where I wanted it. My previous suspension work had been done at ACME suspension, unfortunately Daryll passed away and is no longer an option.
After being on this site for a while and reading all the great reviews I figured I'd contact Dale and pray that he could help me out? HE ABSOLUTELY DID!!! My bike tracks perfectly through the whoops, which previously would buck me all over the place, and the front end is solid, which always felt like it wanted to wash out on me. I honestly couldn't be happier!

THANKS DALE!!!

Re: Dale 'E' O Engineering DOES suspension!

Hi All,

Testing is complete for the new model year and I am ready to go with some really great updates to the stock suspension!

Just a reminder that if you have more than 40 hours on your suspension oil its time to send it in for an oil change!

Any updates to the internal components/valving that I have made since I originally did your suspension are free of charge when you send them in for a service.

So send your suspension in now to have it working its best for the fast approaching riding season!

Dale

Real Berg

Hi Dale,
I noticed all the posts relate to 09 > Bergs, well I have a real Berg 02 FX550e ( Lineweaver top & bottom end blueprint rebuild ). ha ha, anyway I had already sent you info from your web form, but in case there are other early Berg owners out there maybe you could answer my request here as well ?

150 lb rider fast intermediate , open to woods, mainly fast trail riding
04 KTM SX250 WP forks
Stock rear shock, can't remember what spring it has ( away working so unable to check )

What would you recommend, set up sag, fork preload , position rear spring etc

Hi Sean,

Yes most of the posts refer to work done on the 09 bikes forward, but, I have done a fair amount of work on the last generation bikes as well.

I just sent you an order form for you to fill out and return to me via the supplied email address from my website.

How did you end up with forks off of an 04 SX 250?

Re: Dale 'E' O Engineering DOES suspension!

WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!!!!

Dale did my FE390 for me and its the most AMAZING ride I've EVER had!!

EVERY bike I ever had I would zig zag through rock gardens to avoid any rocks bigger than a golf ball.

Now.......I can hit small pumpkin size rocks and it does not deflect, does not upset the bike, does not do anything funny!

How can this be?!?!?!?!

I have no idea Lol!!

It does not swap in whoops now. The front end is on rails like he put Elmer's glue on my tires Lol!

I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Dale E O for your Husaberg boinger needs!

This dude knows his stuff with these bikes!

Thanks again Dale!!

I'm glad that you're super happy with your set up!

Let me know if you need any help feathering it in further to get the most out of your set up!

Thanks for the great prop!

Dale

Re: Dale 'E' O Engineering DOES suspension!

Well, I need new springs at a minimum. I see you recommend an oil change too, but that probably isn't going to happen anytime soon, I just don't have the time to shut the bike down and send the suspension off for either that or for revalving. So here's the question. I'm 240 lbs, I ride extrememly aggressively, I run off road desert rides, trail rides, fire roads, and sometimes where there are no roads. I often pack another 40+ lbs of water, tents, sleeping bag, clothes and food and ride for three or four days at a time with the extra weight on the bike plust I have the 70 degree fuel tank and I'm planning to install the front Safari tank as soo as I can afford the price. Even with the gear on the bike, I'm riding as rough of backcountry as I can find into remote locations.

Well, I'm still running the stock springs. I need new springs for my weight and riding style. The bike is a 2011 FE570S.

Dale, do you have a set of springs for me to buy? If so, how much am I going to be spending?

Brian
