Teknik Motorsport DR650 Platinum Fork Valve
DR650 96′ to current
Suzuki DR650 Platinum Fork Valve by Teknik Suspension.
Our brand new Platinum Valves turn the old school damper rod suspension into a system capable of supporting the modern adventure rider. With a special low friction sealing ring, complex flow ports and a tuneable shim stack, these valves will stop the front from diving under brakes and bottoming on landing, again and again.
NOTE – finally finally they are here, we’ve known these have been coming for twelve months or more. This has been an important project for the Teknik Motorsport Team, there are a couple very good well known valves currently on the market, one is already on our website. These rival fork valves have been continually tested and compared on computer based suspension diagnostic equipment. The challenge was set make the best fork valve possible available on the market today, it’s here it’s available now it’s called the Platinum Fork Valve !
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 !
Note – clearly fork valves come as a pair, ie one for each fork leg as per the image !
Note – also fits DR350, RM125/250 82 to 86, XT660 and XTZ750 Tenere, XRV750 Africa Twin, XL1000V Valdero and a whole bunch of other 80’s MX and enduro bikes, email if you need to know more.
Note – email conversation with Teknik April 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 !
