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.
