Yamaha R1 K-Tech RDS Fork Cartridge Kit (04-08)
A K-Tech RDS (Rod Displacement System) fork cartridge kit is a great choice for road and track day riders who are wanting to totally transform the front end of their bikes and offer a vast improvement in performance compared to standard fork internals. They offer a plusher, more compliant and stable ride, with improved hydraulic support for a more controlled, better handling and a safer bike.
• Fully adjustable - 24 clicks of compression and 30 clicks of rebound adjustment, with 18mm preload adjustment
• 14mm piston rod, 20mm displacing piston and 31mm control piston for improved oil flow, damper performance, feel and response time
• Supplied with linear K-Tech fork springs to match the rider weight, with a wide range of spring rates available
• Increased stroke over original equipment
• Hard anodised and super finished aircraft grade aluminium components to improve performance, reduce friction and reduce service intervals
These cartridge kits are only available from K-Tech authorised dealers. There are specialist tools and techniques required to guarantee their performance and safety of the forks.
