Does anyone know of any companies in Australia that do Titanium Nitriding or what ever that black coating is on the newer forks (forgot the proper name )

DLC - Diamond like coating (is the black).

I'm not sure if Electromold in Melbourne does it, they do frames and wheels.

:edit found their site, might pay to hit them with an email http://www.electromold.com.au/

In the states RaceTech will do Ti nitrade coatings, they may have centers in AU that do it as well:O


good luck, sounds like you've got some pretty trick stuff in the works:devious

If your just after stiction reduction and don't care about bling, there's this new stuff out that you apply yourself called forkslyk that all the MX guys are raving about. I haven't tried it yet so no first hand info on it.


have fun:thumbup

It's just a mod of a mod but will use a 14mm Racetech bush and custom ported seal head that gets a oil supply.

The first one used mostly parts from a Ford Falcon Munroe shock :laugh

:doh well I'm sure you'll find someone to do it sooner or later. I'm sure you know this, but from what I've read TiN is really thin and is best applied over a hard chrome plating, not in-lieu of it - the idea being that it fills in the little pits and dimples in the chrome making it smoother (or so said an article in a MX mag).

good luck
