Suspension for BMW Motorcycles

Hi Folks,

Race Tech has recently developed new suspension kits for BMW Sport/Touring, Adventure and Enduro models! We are pleased we have had the opportunity to work with Irv Seaver and Sandia BMW. Irv Seaver has been very helpful with model applications and two-up settings. Sandia BMW recently hosted a BMW demo day and Track day for their loyal customers and invited Race Tech to host a suspension seminar and track set-up service.

Our G3-S Custom Series Shocks for BMWs provide custom settings and are designed to replace the stock shocks that are not rebuildable. For the rebuildable stock shocks and the ESA we have Gold Valves and HP Spring Kits to transform the suspension.

G3-S Custom Shocks

Now available for most BMW Adventure, Touring, and X-Challenge models! At this time we can custom build G3-S Shocks for almost any BMW. Our shocks have the highest quality components, materials and include a custom setup!

Our flexible reservoir and external adjustment options will suit your needs and budget.

IFP Internal Reservoir

Remote Reservoir

Piggyback Style

Telelever Front

Telelever Options We have a G3-S shock to replace the stock shock for the Telelever front end on R1200RT/GS/Adventure and K1200GT models. It is a Piggyback style with externally adjustable High and Low Speed Compression, Adjustable Rebound, and Preload.

Valving Kits

Gold Valve Emulator Fork Kits
Improve the damping and control of the stock telescopic front forks. Race Tech has developed Emulator Kits for models with Damping Rod Forks such as the F650/GS Dakar, G650GS, F800ST, early K Bikes 750-1100 as well as all Air Head Twins R65-100.

G2-R Cartridge Kits upgrade the Damping Rod Forks on the F800ST to our 25mm cartridges, or upgrade the stock cartridge unit's on the F650GS, F800GS, HP2 Enduro and G650 X-Challenge fork. Our kit provides radical improvement in performance and ride quality.

Fork Caps with adjustable preload and compression/rebound adjustability are available for the F800ST/GS. Our adjustable Fork Caps fit the stock damping rod on the F800ST and our G2-R Cartridge Fork Kit for F800GS.


Gold Valve Conversion Kits are available for both front and rear shocks on the R1200RT and other ESA models and the rear shock on the R1200C and G650GS. Gold Valves replace the stock valves and provide custom settings. We fit the proper spring rates and the shocks are way better than new! Satisfaction guaranteed!



New Springs

HP Fork Spring Kits The stock spring rates on most models are way off. This means the addition of correct spring rates can make a huge difference. Our High Performance Springs have high tolerances and do not sack! We have new fork spring kits for the F800GS/ST, R65 and HP2 models with the proper rates.

HP Spring Rates Check our spring rate search to find the proper fork and shock spring rates available for you or give us a call if it is not listed.

Good Luck and Great Riding,
Paul Thede
