TF Tuned Kashima shock body upgrade only £48 on top of service
Hi all,Posted 5 years ago
first topic post for me.
Just got my Float R rear shock back from TF Tuned today and Boy oh Boy does it look and feel nice 😀
Cant believe it was so cheap..service new mounting hardware,bushes[heavy duty]and a service all tuned to my weight and bike for £144
Junkyard..yeah right :lol:..you can buy me a NEW one for £144 custom tuned with Kashima barrel
LoCo…tell me more,forks as well?
Its £174 but its an upgrade over your R shock !
It is dear I have a point but I am glad you are happy with your “bargain”
Loco that is not a dig at you itis what it is.Posted 5 years agocrashtestmonkeyMember
It’s filling the pores in the oxide coating with moly disulphide grease (you know that 4 quid a tub stuff) as well as pigment. Not exactly NASA stuff and been widely used in boring heavy industry but the sexy name and gold pigment combine to enhance performance by 27%. Or by Rad to the power of Gnarr in imperial units.
I bought a brand new old stock float R for 60quid (in popular 200×50 size) so 140 quid to tweak a base model shock means cheap is a relative concept.
Oh and welcome to the site, we are always this dismissive its nothing personal! And you paid to have it serviced twice? (Re read your post).Posted 5 years ago

On that premise everything is “relative” your opinion mine, everybody’s …shit life’s already like that anyway :D!
That “base shock” has been preferred by alot of people who’ve had RP23’s and RP2 etc
Zesty is not the standard 200×50 its 200×57 so not so easy to find cheapTrimixMember
Anything that looks nice rides nice – until you sell it and then you can admit it was a bit of a waste of money 🙂
I went for a Kashima coating on my forks on the basis it looked great. Id be surprised if anyone could tell if there was less stiction than on the old versions. Lubing your seals would probably do more than a fancy coating.
Also on a shock its easy to protect it from scratches, its much less in the way than on forks.
But im sure I ride faster as a result.Posted 5 years ago
