Service Info & Pricing

Shockcraft is the New Zealand agent for Manitou suspension.  We also offer independent servicing of forks, rear shocks and dropper posts from all major brands.

Fork servicing is available from periodic maintenance to full strip and service.  We can offer, where available, new factory parts, new aftermarket parts and sometimes good used parts for older obselete models.

Servicing is performed by trained staff in a clean work-shop using dedicated tools and the best fluids for each application.  Service costs are split into labour, fluids and parts.  Fork return is via insured & tracked courier (Post Haste or NZ Couriers); pickup/dropoff is by appointment only.

Manitou Warranty Service & Repairs

If you have Manitou forks that require service or repair under warranty please contact the shop or dealer they were purchased from.  They will contact us and arrange service.

Manitou Dorado


Details on our tuning options are available here.  Currently we have tuning for Manitou forks with ABS+ & MC2, RockShox Pike, Lyrik & Boxxer Charger 1 & 2 dampers and Ohlins RXF.  Other models are to follow.  If you want to know more about what we can do to tune your suspension then contact us.

Service Pricing

The nature and cost of service depends on your specific suspension model, it's unique issues and prior maintenance schedule.  We are happy to provide an estimate but final prices can only be known once a component has been fully stripped for service.

Our fork service pricing schedule is below.  If you're not sure what type of service you require we can make a recommendation after inspection of your forks.  Repair work is additional to a normal service.  We will always call and discuss before proceeding with any repair work.

These rates are for labour only.  Parts, oil & freight are additional and vary depending on the brand & model and the problems found.
