Re: Dale 'E' O Engineering DOES suspension!

Hmm ... sounds like someone I'd like to do business with. I've still only got a DR-Z so far Dale, if I may, would you be able to advise on valving for the 49mm conventional-cartridge Showas on the DR-Z? For payment of course.

Re: Dale 'E' O Engineering DOES suspension!

What an excellent fealing. Fantastic job by Dale on my suspension, thank you.

I finaly got to go for a ride yesterday to try out my Dale EO suspension work. All I can say is it was incredible!!!!

The front end tracked excellent absorbed the harsh stuff with ease turned where I pointed it without any hesitation. The rear end was planted firm fealing bet yet plush at the same time. The front and rear worked toegether perfectly, I honestly can say that I felt like I was riding faster then before, the suspension gave me more confidence in the bike knowing that it was tracking strait and not bucking me around like before.

I would give Dale an A+ for his suspension work. If you are in the market to have yours looked at I highly recomend DALE EO!!!!!!!!

Re: Dale 'E' O Engineering DOES suspension!

Another ecstatic customer!! The suspension is awesome. Blasts through everything with no wander, no hunting and still a great ride. I repeatedly went through one section of the trail that had about a dozen or so whoops and they felt like nothing and the bike tracked straight. Dale said that the bike would give me a ton of confidence so be careful. That was an understatement! The bike rides enitrely like a new bike. Wow cant wait for the upcoming Kentucky ride.
Dale glad I met you on the Colorado Force ride and glad to be another very satisfied Dale E O customer!!
Thanks,
Tim

Re: Dale 'E' O Engineering DOES suspension!

I finally got out and rode the bike! I had an injury in August 2012, a FINANCIAL injury, and put my nose to the grindstone for 13 months. I know, 13 months, there's no excuse for that, I'm a traitor to our sport, a slacker, a rube, I'm lower than the dirt we grind beneath our knobbies.

Now that that's done, I'll get on with talking about suspension. I'm getting to know her (2007 FE 650) again and took it easy the first time out, but things went a lot better than before. Dale doesn't just fix suspension, he also coaches. His thing is helping people get better, and I'm still at the point where little tips make a huge difference.

I didn't know you're supposed to sit way up front. Dale straightened me out on that. Back when I rode, there was a TANK, and a SEAT! You sat on the seat and rode! When you do that with these bikes, it fights you the whole way. So that made a huge difference.

Today I pushed it harder, and noticed that I don't "hit" things anymore, I ride over them! Head-size rocks and tree roots don't send me careening off my line, the wheels STAY PUT on the ground, and gee whiz, the bike is just so much more controllable that way!

So I started doing things I wouldn't have tried before, and probably shouldn't now, but all went well. I rode well. I rode for 2 hours and didn't even stop for water. Previously, I'd be exhausted and dripping wet in 15 - 30 minutes.

I only crashed once, it was a hill I knew I couldn't make it up, literally straight up at the top with 3 levels of tree roots in the last 2 - 3 feet, but I tried anyway. Once.

Come around a blind corner, and there's a big rock in my line, no problem, no panic. Just RIDE!

It was probably the most fun I've ever had riding. Instead of a constant physical battle with frequent moments of terror, it's just fun and predictable.

THANKS, DALE!!!! I now have the world-class bike I've always wanted!

Re: Dale 'E' O Engineering DOES suspension!

Dale did a great job on my 2010 FX450 very happy. I was a little concerned shipping it to California from New York and not knowing if the terrain it was being set up for was similar to what I ride. The local trails are single track sandy and hard pack and some whopped out sections. It gives great confidence when the suspension is set up correct this thing eats up everything and tracks perfectly if you have never had your suspension tuned by a professional do it its the best money spent for performance.

Hello fellow Husaberg enthusiasts!

I've been away from the site for some time now, but the site has never been far from my thoughts.

I'm glad to see that there is a lot of activity on the site for the bikes, not surprising really since the bikes were so far ahead of their time the rest are finally just catching up! I've still been doing some sets of suspension work, and wanted to let any new comers, or old timers that I'm still doing suspension and would look forward to helping any members get their bikes set up, and help them get the best out of their bikes!

Hope you all had a great Holiday season!

Dale
