Suzuki DR650 Fork Upgrade Kit by Teknik Suspension.
This DIY upgrade kit sets the forks up for your rider weight and adds the new 2021 new Platinum fork valves to stop the bike from diving under brakes and bottoming on landing.
PLEASE NOTE – KIT NOW COMES WITH THE NEW PLATINUM FORK VALVE, THE BEST ON THE MARKET, THE NEW FORK VALVES ARE $80 ALONE DEARER THAN THE PREVIOUS FORK VALVE AND AGAIN IS THE BEST DR650 FORK VALVE MONEY CAN BUY !
Kits are available in several sizes, below is a guide supplied by Teknik but people should do there own research. Don’t get too wound up about exact sizes or weight of spring, it’s .02 between spring sizing so little difference between say a .58 and .60 and so on and so on. This being the most modern fork valve also means you can use lighter weight springs. Some people carry a lot of gear others carry little, some ride hard tracks at speed some are back road tourers and like a plusher ride, email if unsure or need a guide.
NOTE – There is further information to read under the individual fork springs and rear shock springs within this the ‘suspension’ category which will assist you, please read prior to emailing or calling me so you have some handle on where our discussion will go.
Note – no we don’t sell fork oil due to not being able to send with Australia Post. Any brand will survive, purchase from motorcycle dealer, repco, autobarn, supercheap etc etc. Note we do three brands of fork valves, Cogent recommend 5wt with there DDC fork valve, Teknik Platinum between 5 and 10wt. FFRC between 5 and 10wt. Thinner oil moves through the valves easier, I use 7.5wt by mixing 5 and 10 together !
DR’s are famously easy to work on, but all the instructions are included in case you’re unsure.
If you require a size not shown email for availability.

Note – email conversation with Teknik March 2022 – prices will increase, the brass the platinum valves are machined from has tripled in the last two years, aluminum doubled and now expect bigger increases with current war crisis, steel has skyrocketed, shortage of raw materials, major delays in manufacturing, unfortunate as it is prices will continue to rise !
