Another thread about Jogaca suspension :)

The Man really makes wonders. I have 700R 2016 and the stock suspension is stiff and has no real adjust-ability. On bumpy terrain you have to slow down otherwise you go airborne and have no control over the direction of driving.
For instance there is a small jump (20cm bump to get water off the road) and then a hard right turn.
On stock suspension you go airborne and when you have to turn the bike goes: NOPE! I want to go straight for a few more meters!
Right. Not fun really.
With Jogaca suspension the bike goes: What bump? Turns like it is on rails and when you hit the gas it draws smile on your face. Just like the firs time you rode it :D

It eats bumps like it is nothing and when you need it to be stiffer in the corner it does so and it does it with ease. I'm really satisfied with his product and on top of this he is also very good, professional, kind guy that knows what he is doing. All I can do is take my hat off and buy him a cartoon of beer.

you can see how left tyre is higher and compensation for the uneven terrain.



rear shock and adjustable rear link to adjust the geometry and to compensate for 22" rear tyres.

Well said. He couldn't be nicer or more knowledgeable, and if there's an individual or even a independent shop that puts out his level of quality and customer service for any where near what he charges I've not been able to find them.
Black Supra, if I ever get to meet him I will most definitely do every thing I can to find a carton of beer to give him on your behalf.

P.S. Better handling = safer, once again money well spent in the interest of protecting the free world.

Thank you

Gotcha covered for your title.

Those shocks came out great. Good job smuggling through customs finally. Never heard anything bad with Jogaca work. I have had a set from him for years now and love them.

That would be great Matt :D
Thanks Morph. To be honest that smuggling was a big deal. Customs would charge me ~350$ for that if full price was stated. Instead of giving that money to customs I gave nearly $200 extra to the Kevin. Win Win for everyone. The state can steal it somewhere else :)

Can the stock suspension on my 2017 Raptor 700 SE be tuned for a 250 pounder?
Yep should be able to. reach out to Kevin/Jogaca suspension works. On facebook or search some threads on here.

Added a video of rear shock in action (2nd post). I'll be making another one for the front suspension :)

Nothing but good things to say about his service and work, he has done both my raptors and my ATC 250r. Awesome guy to deal with. I would without a doubt pay more for his work than anyone else.

He re-sprung and revalved a used set of Custom Axis shocks I bought used from a YFZ and they worked awesome. Totally different machine after installed, handled all I could throw at him.

Excellent Service and Turn Around. When I'm ready to refresh my Motowoz Rear KEvin-Jogaca will be the man to go to.

Just got my babies from Jogaca yesterday! they look great! now have to install the rear one. Any tips on easiest way to remove rear shock and install new one? nuts look difficult to reach.
It is not that hard. Super easy if you have a friend to lend you a hand to hold one side of the bolt while you undo the other. Its easy. Once you disassemble everything put it back in reverse order and that's it. I like that black front plastic. It looks so sweat :D
