(Big Piston Forks)


Hello gang,

Race Tech’s BPF Gold Valve Fork Kits are available for the 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R, Suzuki GSX-R600 and H-D XR1200! The stock BPF design has an oversize yet very restrictive single piston that is required to flow more than 10 times the fluid of a standard cartridge. This creates harshness and contributes to chatter during braking.

Race Tech’s Gold Valve Kits for the BPF Forks address 3 major problems. First, the Gold Valve improves the flow characteristics dramatically. Second, the travel is increased to improve bump absorption particularly under heavy braking. It also increases front end Trail thereby improving stability and grip. Third, the BPF bottom-out mechanism is short and abrupt. The Race Tech kits make the bottoming process more gradual, further decreasing braking chatter and improving traction.

Race Tech has two unique tools that are a must-have for the Showa BPF forks:

The TFCW 4549 is a 45/49mm Fork Cap Wrench. (8 sided)

TFCH 06 is a special Cartridge tool to remove and replace the seal head.

Same tool fits both 41 and 43mm BPF forks.
