Race Tech's latest Fork Spring Kit and Gold Valve Fork Kits are developed for the all-new fork system found on the 2011 Kawasaki KX250F. The new Showa forks are unique in that one fork acts as a damper and only one fork has a spring. Oil is contained in both 47mm fork legs.
Race Tech has two Gold Valve Fork Kits available for the new Showa forks: The Type 1 Gold Valve (FMGV 3421C) and the G2-R Gold Valve Fork Kit (FMGV 3421GC). Both Race Tech Gold Valve Fork Kits contain Compression and Rebound Gold Valves (including custom Mid-valve settings), complete instructions, Valving Charts and Shims. Gold Valve Fork Kits improve the flow characteristics dramatically. Gold Valve Fork Kits provide a firm and plush ride that gives better feedback to the rider resulting in more "feel" and outstanding traction. The G2-R Kit is more versatile and optimizes the loading of the shims while improving flow. G2-R Gold Valves can be preloaded (digressive) and/or restricted (progressive).
