    Bitubo not being sold by Bellissimoto any more? **Update**

    **Update**

    Eric at Velocity reached out to us this morning, he also said they should be able to reseal Works shocks and was confidant that the rubber parts he should be able to source for them. :

    I may be reading this wrong, but....
    As I have told many, buy an extra rebuild kit for the future either way. Guys are going thru this with Works shocks now.

    It happens, stock up on service parts. The ZRX is going on 20 years old now. Even Kawasaki is eliminating cosmetic parts and some hard parts as time goes on it will happen more and more.

    I'm not streamlining. I am elimination parts that/because:

    1) I do not enjoy making
    2) Ones that take way too much time
    3) And to make more time for new products...I make over 100 items in-house now
    4) I am starting a parallel line of Mini Mill, Mini Lathe, Micro Lathe, 3D Printer, Lazzzer Printer & CNC Router parts and accessories that will launch soon...real soon.
    5) There's only one of me, and I need to pay the frikkin' bills. I already work seven days a week as it is.

    It is ALL I can do to carry it from the back bedroom to the shop. Probably two large Flat Rate boxes for most of the contents and one 30 pound UPS box. Figure $100 for shipping should cover it all....maybe a bit less.

    They were not friendly towards me buying a couple kits and a manual.
    Some poop about having to fly to Italy to learn how to do it.
    You might have better luck.

    I had good luck getting Bitubo shocks for my W650 from Omnia Racing in Italy. They are on Ebay and also have a website. They do communicate via email in English.

    I'm pretty sure that Dan @ Traxxion told me that they can service Bitubo's when I bought my last Penske.

    Iím pretty sure the only US importer is Bellissiemoto, every one who lists them got them from them.
    Again, I may be wrong.

    Yeah, my works racers are still open and the shop is trying to source bladders. I guess my annual Thanksgiving ride is out of the question with the ZRX.

    Hey guys,

    Thanks to KWICK and AV8OR I was able to get an account give you guys some more information.

    Like KWICK mentioned we can get you parts for Bitubo. We can also service OEM KYB shocks.

    We would have to crack one open and look, but I am fairly confident we can source parts to build a rebuild kit for the works shocks. We would just need to take some measurements.

    We also carry products for the forks including seals, oil, bushings etc.

    We'll certainly try and check on here from time to time, but for the quickest response its always best to contact us in the info in post #1 or through the website in my signature.

    Thanks again and if you guys have ANY questions don't hesitate!

    Eric

    Their original response was " The guy who would know where to source OEM seals/bladders is on vacation this week".

    1. I've owned a business, so I understand that happens, but don't tell me that. It just makes me annoyed. Mostly because Im not on vacation.
    2. OEM? They are out of business! I thought you were going to make them!

    They have it open, I asked why they cant measure and get it fabricated.

    I think I am just going to buy some stock shocks off ebay. Nothing annoys me more then having a bike on stands that can rip.

    Bladders...no one is going fabricate a set, that is not going to happen.

    They'll need to "find" them thru serious detective work. Start at a large Caterpiller dealer and look for their oldest parts guy/gal.
    Or find a shop thru the Vintage Motorcross circles that rebuilds suspension. Call Racin' Bill Ramsey 480-835-6228 and ask him who he knows. He's old, still races MX, is deaf...speak clear/loud....and is a good friend of mine.

    Dave Alexander of Fluid Suspension Science (fluidsuspensionscience.com) near Seattle rebuilt my stockers with new bladders, sourced I believe from RaceTech. They even have proper Schraeder valves for recharging the nitrogen. He's very busy during race season so I've had him do my suspension work in the off season.
