FCR Suspension now authorized Öhlins centers

Hendersonville, North Carolina: Off road specialists, FCR Suspension, are now off road Öhlins TTX suspension specialists, certified through the new Öhlins USA suspension training program. All off road riders, from Motocross to Supercross, to Arenacross, to crossing creeks and woods in GNCC, can now depend on the FCR Suspension dealer in their area to service and set up Öhlins TTX suspensions components for their bikes.

The Öhlins USA training program included FCR Suspension personnel:

>> Mike Sampson of FCR Suspension of Wheeling, West Virginia: Msampson4@comcast.net

>> Matthew Hedges of FCR Suspension of Gaston, Indiana: mlhedges@hotmail.com

>> Bob Luketic of Rogers, Ohio: bob@fcrsuspension.com

Luketic said, "Even though we are already suspension specialists, it’s always good to learn something new. At the Öhlins training we learned about special tools and how the Öhlins products are assembled differently than other brands. They also covered the theory behind their TTX components and set up. Their shop is set up really well and so we’ll remodel ours after theirs a bit. We now attend off-road events but in the future we’re looking forward to adding road racing."

David Behrend, Öhlins USA Off Road Motorcycle Technician said, "The FCR Suspension guys were great to have visit our shop and take our training. Although they are already professionals in their field they were open to learning new techniques and honing their suspension skills. We’re looking forward to them helping us conquer the motorcycle off-road market."

Öhlins USA distributes and services the world’s leading performance suspension for automobiles, motorcycles, ATVs, and snowmobiles. Öhlins develops its proprietary and innovative suspension components at the highest levels of racing from open-wheel car racing, to Moto GP, to off-road competition on two and four wheels.
