Touratech Fork Cartridge Conversion for BMW F800GS
After years of research and development and months of testing Touratech is introducing the Fork Cartridge Conversion for the BMW F800GS and F800GS Adventure. This huge advancement in adventure motorcycle suspension completely transforms the front-end of the F800GS with high performance characteristics that can’t be achieved with OEM forks and it can be done quickly and easily. The Fork Cartridge Conversion is a drop-in solution that completely replaces the internals on the stock fork with cutting-edge suspension technology.
No modifications to the fork tubes, fork brace or brake system are necessary and a state-of-the-art bladder system is used instead of a floating piston. A closed cartridge separates the nitrogen and high-performance damping oil from the moving parts of the forks for smooth and consistent performance even in punishing environments. The system includes hydraulic-bottoming-prevention that works like a pillow to prevent the fork from bottoming out suddenly. “The stock bike just feels harder to ride and less confidence inspiring the faster you try to ride it. That all changes with this cartridge system.”– Iain Glynn – Chief Riding Officer, Touratech-USA
Correct geometry and handling can be achieved by adjusting the preload nut located on top of the fork legs. Compression damping, rebound and pre-load adjustments are located on top of the forks allowing riders to make changes easily. Spring weights are selected to match rider weight, load and riding preferences to maximize performance.
Upgrading the BMW F800 to the Touratech Cartridge System provides the rider with the best possible performance and is versatile enough to adjust to any riding conditions. MSRP: $1795.00 Touratech-USA.com
