GOLD VALVE CARTRIDGE EMULATORS for H-D FORKS

 

 

 

Race Tech's award winning Gold Valve Emulator Kits for Forks provide a personalized setup and adjustability. Gold Valves Emulators improve fork oil flow dramatically reducing harshness while actually increasing bottoming resistance (as shown with data acquisition). These Kits can often be installed by individuals interested in understanding and tuning their own suspension or they can be installed by a local Race Tech Center, Dealer or of course the Race Tech's Service Department. Gold Valve Kits include Installation Instructions, Tuning Guides and alternate parts to allow a custom setup and adjust ability for rider preference and type of riding.

BAGGERS

Harley-Davidson Touring bikes are tyically undersprung and have damping that is both too mushy and too harsh at the same time. This compromises comfort, control and handling confidence. Installing Gold Valve Emulators and RT Hi-Performance Fork Springs on the front end is the best first-step for improved suspension.

To improve the ride further G3-S Custom Series Shocks are bolt-on replacements for the stock units. They can be ordered in any length with any available spring rate for no additional charge. These custom shocks are built to the rider's specs, guaranteeing a smooth, comfortable, controlled ride. Custom colors and lengths are available as well.

Get the ULTIMATE in suspension performance out of your Harley-Davidson's rear shocks.  Race Tech offers G3-S Shocks in custom lengths.  Increase the length of your shocks for more travel, improved plushness, and greater ground clearance.  For aggressive riders looking for the most out of their Harley-Davidson's suspension, this setup featuring drastically improved handling and performance is a must have!

 

  

SOFTAILS

Harley-Davidson Softail® models have been key sellers in the fleet for the past few decades. Although these sleek, powerful machines are often made into pieces of art, the stock suspension has room for improvement and is often overlooked. These bikes are undersprung and have damping curves that are both harsh on the square-edge bumps and mushy as well. By installing RT Hi-Performance Fork Springs and Gold Valve Emulators, these bikes can perform very well up front.

On the rear G3-ST Custom Series Shocks are available that feature adjustable length options to change ride height. The shock bodies are smaller at 2.5" in diameter so they clear most custom offset transmissions. These newly redesigned shocks have Thru-Shaft Technology. The shocks are bolt-on replacements for the stock units and are built to the rider's specification guaranteeing an excellent ride.

DYNAS

Dynas® have the classic Harley-Davidson look with low-profile frames and extended front rake, but the stock suspension, like most Harleys, has room for improvement. These bikes are undersprung and have the same damping issues as other models, mushy and harsh. By installing RT Hi-Performance Fork Springs and Gold Valve Emulators, you can expect significant improvement.

To improve the ride on the rear G3-S Custom Series Shocks are bolt-on replacements for the stock shocks. They are custom built to any length and to the rider's weight. The shocks have color options as well. We guarantee a smooth comfortable ride.

SPORTSTERS

Sportsters® have been in the Harley-Davidson lineup for over 25 years now. Once considered entry level, these models have received significant attention from the H-D engineers. Sportsters are commonly undersprung and the damping can be both harsh and mushy. By installing RT Hi-Performance Fork Springs and Gold Valve Emulators the front forks of Sportsters can perform very well.

On the rear the stock shocks can be improved upon significantly. G3-S Series Custom Shocks are available in any length for no additional charge. They are setup specifically for each rider and can be made in a variety of color combinations.

XR1200 SPORTSTERS

Race Tech has supported the XR1200 AMA Vance & Hines Road Race Championship Series in both 2010 and 2011 seasons. We were fortunate to team up with Danny Eslick in 2010 and Chris Fillmore in 2011 to win the Championship two years in a row!

Both racers used our G3-S Custom Series Piggyback Shocks that were built 75mm longer than stock to achieve better geometry on the rear. On the front the stock BPF Showa forks were modified and our G2-R 25mm Cartridges were installed. These provided compression and rebound adjustment along with preload. Call for details.

TOTAL CONTROL ADVANCED RIDING CLINIC

 

 

 

Race Tech is proud to Support Total Control Advanced Riding Clinic                                                                                            

                        

RIn today's age of high-horsepower superbikes, large-displacement cruisers and super-heavy-weight touring bikes, riding skills are more important than ever for safe, fun motorcycling. Unfortunately for experienced riders, there is a large gap between the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's Experienced Rider Course (ERC) and the many racetrack schools around the country. Many riders are interested in improving their skills but are unwilling to take on the additional risks associated with a high-speed environment. If you fit into the "I'm interested, but" group, you're not alone. In fact, if you add up all the attendees of all the race schools together, they only represent a tiny percentage of street riders. This is not to say they are not good schools. To the contrary, they have much to offer. But they are not for everyone. Fortunately, Lee Parks' Total Control Advanced Riding Clinic (Total Control ARC) has a solution for those experienced riders "caught in the middle," as well as those track-day junkies and racers who want to be able to further enhance their skills in a controlled environment with expert instruction. ►Read More!
