New Fork Kit technology for Showa's BPF Forks

Race Tech’s latest Gold Valve Fork Kits are for the all-new Showa BPF forks found on the 2009-2011 Kawasaki ZX-6R (FMGV S3701), Kawasaki ZX10R 2011, 2009-2011 Suzuki GSX-R1000, and Harley Davidson XR1200S (FMGV S3901). The stock BPF design has an oversize yet very restrictive singular 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.  This improves bump absorption particularly under heavy braking.  It also increases front end Trail thereby improving stability and grip.  Third, the stock 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's Gold Valve Fork Kits provide custom valve settings for the individual and improves handling, control, and ride dramatically.  These Kits include valves, valving shims, shim charts, top-out and bottom-out systems along with detailed instructions. In addition, Race Tech has developed two unique tools that are a must-have for the Showa BPF fork. The TFCW 4549 is a 45/49mm Fork Cap Wrench and TFCH 06 is a special Cartridge tool to remove and replace the seal head.

FMGV S3701 and FMGV S3901 Kits retail for $299.99. TFCW 4549 retails for $54.99 while TFCH 06 retails for $49.99. All Race Tech products, tools and services are available by calling Customer Service (951) 279-6655 or please email: sales@ racetech.com
