GOLD VALVE FORK AND SHOCK KITS

The key to a personalized setup that provides consistent action, great feel, and improved grip and stability is Race Tech's Gold Valve Fork and Shock Kits.  Gold Valves improve flow allowing the shim stack to control suspension action.  Riders rave about the Gold Valve dirt track setup providing excellent grip and stability allowing incredible turning.  Many riders also comment how they no longer feel like they have a heavy front end that wants to pivot as soon as Gold Valves are installed.

These Kits can be installed by individuals interested in understanding and tuning their own suspension or they can be installed by a Race Tech Center or Race Tech's Service Department. The Kits include Valving Charts and Valving Shims to allow a custom setup for a specific rider and conditions.

Fork Rebound Gold Valve Kit: Many stock rebound valving systems are grossly inadequate. No matter what modifications are attempted, the stock valves will never perform with precision or control. If you race or simply want the best, Race Tech's Rebound Gold Valves are the solution to improved traction. Proven by the top AMA Pros, these valves increase flow area, putting valving control on the shim stack instead of the piston. This results in outstanding tuneability, improved control and traction.

G3-LD Shock Gold Valve Kit: Guaranteed to provide better handling and each kit includes a Gold Valve and a personalized valving setup.  The G3-LD Gold Valve design creates better flow allowing improved bottoming resistance, plushness, control and traction as well as increased tuneability.

Benefits of Gold Valves:

    -Increased tuneability

    -Personalized setup

    -Reduced harshness

    -Increased bottoming resistance

    -Improved traction

    -Consistent feel

    -Technical support

    -100% Guaranteed

    -Made in the USA

     

19MM SHOCK SHAFT KIT

Race Tech has developed a 19mm Shock Shaft Kit to greatly improve the performance of your stock shock. The benefits of a larger shaft include more flow for increased adjustment, and also provides improved strength. Available for Japanese motocross bikes with 16mm stock shock shafts.

The 19mm Shaft Kit features an 8 clicks per revolution rebound adjuster for improved fine tuning. Dyno testing verifies compression adjustment range is increased by nearly 4 times, and rebound adjustment range offers nearly a 50% increase. Flat Track requires more suspension tuning track-to-track than any other genre of motorcycles due to a wide variety of soil conditions and bankings. This makes the 19mm Shock Shaft Kit particularly important. The 19mm Kit provides a significant increase in overall range while the additional clicks create more precise adjustments.

 

REBOUND SEPARATOR VALVE

 

 

Rebound Separator Valves replace the Shock Shaft Nut and with an asymmetric valve that flows through the Low-Speed Rebound Adjuster. This means Low-Speed Rebound Damping can be set for excellent traction while keeping the Compression nice and firm. This dramatically increases traction while giving better bottoming resistance.

 

HONDA STEERING DAMPER GOLD VALVE KIT

Stock Honda steering dampers come with an under-damped feel with a small amount of adjustability. To help the steering damper become more effective and predictable, Race Tech has developed a Steering Damper Gold Valve Kit to increase damper performance and adjustability. The kit comes with instructions for 3 settings: soft, standard and hard.

 

G3-S CUSTOM SERIES SHOCKS


 

Look no further for the ultimate suspension solution for the rear of your Custom Frame or Vintage dirt tracker.  Race Tech's G3-S Custom Series Shocks are personalized, built-to-order in the USA specifically for your setup, size, skill level, and application.  Available in (nearly) any length and 100% GUARANTEED to exceed even your highest expectations.

IFP, Remote Reservoir, and Piggyback shock options are available

COATINGS

Coatings drastically reduce friction to provide a smooth and consistent feel, as well as provide an excellent resistance to wear.

Diamond Like Coating (DLC2):

DLC2 is the best of the best when it comes to coatings. Applied to the exterior of the chrome tubes, it is extremely hard and slippery.

DLC2 Coating Benefits:

- Excellent resistance to wear

- Creates extremely hard and slippery surface

- Creates "factory" look

More info about DLC2 Coating

Fork Tube & Shock Body Hard Anodizing:

Hard anodizing is a treatment for aluminum surfaces only. Many of today's stock forks come with the aluminum outer tubes hard anodized from the factory; however, the coating is many times very thin - wearing through in less than 10 hours of riding. Once worn, bushings ride on soft aluminum creating friction and an inconsistent feel.

Hard Anodizing Benefits:

- Excellent resistance to wear

- Hardness provides reduced friction

- Allows exterior surface color option
