K-Tech has announced a new range of street bike suspension parts that should greatly improve the handling of your retro motorcycle.
K-Tech isn’t a common brand on the streets in North America; they’re known for their roadracing parts. Two British Superbike class winners used their suspension this year.
Their new line of K-Tech Tracker front fork cartridges are intended to drop in to the forks of classic-styled motorcycles, replacing the stock springs and internals with new bits that allow spring pre-load, compression and rebound damping. That should drastically improve the handling and comfort of many older bikes.
To match the Tracker fork parts, K-Tech has introduced the Razor shocks, also available in a “Lite” version. The Razor shocks are nitrogen-filled and appear to offer both preload adjustability and some sort of compression adjustability.
Finally, for cruiser owners who dislike the look of springs on the back of their bikes (for whatever reason), K-Tech has also announced the Bullitt shock, which relies entirely on nitrogen charge for suspension purposes – there are no springs.
