This sets us apart from most other suppliers as we use our own product for road and Racing, keeping us in touch with up to date technology and giving us a far greater insight into the customers’ needs, and the product’s performance.

customer care

West Performance recognises the value of their trade and end user customers alike, both in the UK and for export. “In order to maintain a good working relationship with the trade, when we receive retail enquires so as best to ensure safety, we will always recommend that the product be handled through an established trade contact, as brakes, do need to be fitted by qualified personnel”.


In all cases, as the Manufacturer we will endeavour to work with our customers at all times to ensure ultimate Product performance and support.

We at West Performance realise that motorcycle racing or road riding is not a ‘9 till 5 thing’, our Customer Support phone line, fax and email is available 24/7. Problems and queries we will attempt to answer right away, the impossible may take a little longer!
