Ducati Panigale 899 K-Tech DDS Fork Cartridge Kit (14-15)

K-Tech DDS Fork Cartridge Kits replace all of the internal componentry from within a fork to transform front end feeling and feedback from the front tyre. Fluid transfer will be independently controlled by managing high, mid and low speed damping forces more effectively by way of a sealed system design as well as rectifying any set preload issues when compared to original equipment.

A DDS cartridge is a complete replacement direct damping system to fit the original equipment front forks. Manufactured in the UK, they are produced to the same very high standard as all K-Tech's performance products, using the highest grade aluminium, anodised components.

The K-Tech DDS (Direct Damping System) fork cartridge kits are designed with serious track day riders and professional racers in mind. Using race and championship winning knowledge and data from around the world, these are some of the very best fork cartridge kits that money can buy. 

The DDS cartridge kit is a patented pressurised damping system which eliminates cavitation. Using the pressure from a spring force, they offer unparalleled stability under extreme conditions, with damping circuits designed to work independently, improving dynamics and response time.

The K-Tech DDS fork cartridge kits feature:

  • 30 clicks of independent compression and rebound adjustment and 18mm preload adjustment
  • 8mm piston rod, 20mm displacing piston and a 31mm control piston for increased oil flow, damping control, feel and response time
  • Patented pressurised design to eliminate cavitation
  • Supplied with three pairs of linear K-Tech fork springs, offering the rider a choice of spring rates. A wide range of spring rates are available
  • Used at the highest level of racing worldwide, including British Superbikes and at the Isle of Man

These kits are only available from K-Tech authorised dealers. There are specialist tools and techniques required to guarantee their performance and the safety of the forks. As K-Tech's largest UK Premier Dealer, we would need to receive your loose forks in order for us to fit the kit. Fitting is done as part of our standard fork service - we don't charge any extra to install the revalve kits and we always us the recommend K Tech fork oil to maintain the correct damping settings. More details regarding this can be viewed on our fork rebuild service page.
