Damper maintenance services
A note for all Reiger customers! Winter is coming and therefore please remember that its' very vital for dampers to be serviced and oiled for cold conditions. It has been noticed that even for -5 degrees summer oil stiffs a lot and doesn't get warm in any chilly temperatures.
We've also noticed that many customers leaves the damper service until something gets broken. Therefore we remind that dampers should be serviced at least once a year to get maximum performance out from them. For example professional rally teams service their dampers after each rally day!
When servicing the dampers regulary you also avoid unnecessary faults!
