Cyclemall speedily fixed my heads quicker, better and without problems where two other "Chops" didn't or couldn't.

My 2003 R1 was a mess, and had hidden problems that Cyclemall uncovered and fixed that were life threatening. These problems were actually created by other sportbike mechanics. Not being a mechanic myself I didn't know what I was looking at nor that the problems were there. One shop left my rear axle loose after a chain and sprocket replacement! I had already had the bike to 130mph since that replacement.

These guys have a top notch reputation on, which has over 3,000 local sportbike members. That is what pointed me to this shop.
I couldn't be happier.

My bike runs like a different bike now. They know what they are doing and won't rip you off.

At the end of the day do you go to some All-around-shop that sells KDX 50's alongside V-Max cruisers? Or do you bring your sportbike to a bunch of track rats that specialize in sportbikes and true race bikes? Failure is not only not an option, its a career/shop killer for any specialized shop like Cyclemall. You wouldn't bring your Ducati to a Waverunner shop would you?

Just wanted to give a huge thanks for all the support you have given
me this year. This was by far my best year roadracing which shows that with
the expert suspension set-up you gave me and the hard work you put into the
weekends we spent at the track it was a big success. In addition to the 3
WSMC class championships and Overall Club Championships, we were able to
consistently break track records many times throughout the year. I couldn't
have done it without you, and I look forward to continuing where we left off
in 2010. Thanks Catalyst Reaction and Elka!!

Hey Tige!  Just wanted to let you know that the bike felt great this past weekend at chuckwalla!  I don't know what you guys did but it felt super responsive and the quick shifter worked flawlessly.  Thanks again for the great work!  I'll be dropping it off again soon to have you guys install the lap timer and get some fresh rubber.



I just wanted to thank you for the great work you do. My bike (White w/red strip R1) feels a thousand times better on the track. and I appreciate the follow up on the rebound on the rear this weekend following your tuning work on the 4th of February. Many people don't give a S**t about their customers once they've gotten their money. Obviously that is not the case with you. Also I wanted to thank you guys for getting my friend David (RC51 - with the leaking forks and bent Dampening Rod) back on the track. His weekend would have been ruined had you guys not been able to pull that off. So once again, thanks for all of your hard work, and I look forward to working with you again in the future as I continue to get faster. I've got a TZ250 also, Hopefully I can get some time with you next month to start getting it dialed in a bit as well.

Thank you for your help and advice over this past weekend at WSMC! As you can imagine, I have a lot to learn as a novice racer. Even so, your suspension work on my bike is certainly getting me more comfortable out there and riding with more confidence. In fact, I was able to run a 1:33 in the race this weekend, which was over 7 seconds faster than my best time in last months race. I could not have done that without your help. I think I'll be taking on Shane pretty soon! So, thanks again!

I'm going to change tire brands next month. The Dunlops (both the GP209 NTec's and the new GP211's) keep growing at high speed.. so much so that they've now torn up two front fenders on my Daytona 675. It's very disconcerting to be smelling burning rubber at the end of a long straight away. Dunlop suggested I just ride without a fender or clip it in front, but neither one of those solutions is particularly palatable to me. I may end up trying the Pirelli Diablo Supercorsas.

I've attached a photo for your amusement! Anyway, I think this means I
will need your assistance again in re-setting my suspension to account for
the brand change.

Also, I've printed out a bunch of record sheets from your website. I've put them in a binder to start tracking my settings and other info for reference.

Thanks again!
P.S. I dropped off my forks with Tige yesterday for a re-build. I can't wait to see what sort of improvements that brings!

Just wanted to let you know that I received both the forks from you and the shock from Elka on Friday, installed them on Saturday, and took a street ride on them today. The ride felt great, but I'm sure I won't be able to fully appreciate the difference until I get them dialed in by Dave on the track.

I also want to say my thanks to you for your great service. From the first call through the delivery, I felt assured that you cared about my satisfaction as a customer. You weren't just trying to sell me stuff; you were trying to sell me the stuff that was right for me.

I look forward to sharing my positive experience with Catalyst Reaction with everybody that notices the Elka on my bike.

Thanks, DRR.

Dave & Tige,

Thanks for sorting out my 675's front end and setting it up. I took it out for a good ride in the canyons this morning and it was like a new bike! It rode so much more comfortably and handled better than I have ever experienced before. Now I can't wait to take it to the track!
