    Does anybody near middle TN have the stuff to recharge shocks?

    I'm rebuilding a few motorcycle shocks and don't particularly feel like spending $300 or so on tools and supplies I'd only use once every few years.

    Does anyone have the stuff to do it themselves, or any ideas as to what kind of place would be able to recharge shocks near me? My shocks need 250-300PSI in a Schrader valve, delivered through a no-loss chuck. I couldn't find any suspension rebuilders anywhere near middle TN through Internet searching.

    No offense meant, but that Harley dealer doesn't sell anything close to high-performance suspension. It's a clothing dealer disguised as a motorcycle dealership.

    Where'd you get this list? It's interesting, because it's a pretty old one -- the Harley dealership has since changed names to "Moonshine Harley-Davidson", MOAB Bike Shop hasn't been at that address for about 3 years (they moved across town), and the guy that runs SB Suspension is currently out of town sailing around the world for a few years...

    The only one remaining in that list that still has a working website is Deft Motion, so I sent them an email. The other two appear to be out of business.

    None taken, no problem.
    First I went to the Ohlins website to see if they had any distributors in TN, then followed that with a Google search for motorcycle suspension in TN. Google does not keep businesses "updated"...
    Maybe try searching the websites of other after-market suspension places.
    RaceTech service centers - https://racetech.com/page/id/72
    Fox - https://www.ridefox.com/buy.php?m=bike and put TN in the Search box; also serviceavl@ridefox.com
    Cogent Dynamics (North Carolina) - https://www.motocd.com/bmw-performan...on-upgrades-2/
    Progressive Suspension - https://www.progressivesuspension.com/dealer-locator
    etc. ...
