2011 KX250F

Hello gang,

Race Tech has Fork Kits for the 2011 Kawasaki KX250F! Fork Gold Valve Kits, Fork Springs and Shock Gold Valves are now highly developed for the all-new fork system found on the 2011 Kawasaki KX250F. The new Showa forks are unique in that one fork leg has a damper and the other has a spring!

Privateer Bruce Rutherford is using our Gold Valve Kits in the 2011 AMA West Lites Supercross Series where he earned two top-10 finishes (Oakland and Anahaim2). He had a little mishap and was injured but before that he was in the top 10 overall points standings!

Much has been rumored about these forks needing "balanced" damping and springs but I invite you to compare these forks (setup with Gold Valves of course) to anything in the world. You will be impressed - guaranteed!

Race Tech has two Gold Valve Fork Kits available: Type 1 Gold Valves (FMGV 3421C) and G2-R Gold Valves (FMGV 3421GC).  Both Kits improve the flow characteristics dramatically. Gold Valve Fork Kits provide a firm and plush ride that gives better feedback to the rider resulting in more "feel" and outstanding traction. The G2-R Kit is more versatile and optimizes the loading of the shims while improving flow. G2-R Gold Valves can be preloaded (digressive) and/or restricted (progressive).  

Both Gold Valve Fork Kits contains complete instructions, both Compression and Rebound Gold Valves (including custom Mid-valve settings), Valving Charts and Shims. The Shock Gold Valve (SMGV 5003) is a proven package as well.

Fork Springs for the new KX250F (FRSP 4374 Series) are available in many rates to accommodate a wide range of rider weights.  Race Tech’s HP Springs are made of the finest spring materials and have a high stiffness-to-mass ratio.

  • FRSP 4374 Series Springs are available in .80, .85, .90, .95, 1.00kg/mm rates. (Remember to divide by 2 to get the dual spring equivalent.)
  • SRSP 6727 Shock Springs are available in 4.0, 4.2, 4.4, 4.6, 4.8, 5.0, 5.2, 5.4, 5.7 and 6.0kg/mm rates.
