    Front fork Touring

    Read somewhere that the front suspension for Touring was developed by Kayaba. Looking for the fork assy or for it's parts, can't find anything. Could anyone assist? At least regarding Kayaba and Part numbers. Thanks Sergo

    Front Fork Seals/Prog Springs

    I'm doing the change over to Progressive springs. So I have them apart, new 7W oil, new seals in. the manual says to put oil level at 89 mm from upper edge of fork tube, with fork fully compressed. OR, Alternatively just put in 667 cc's of fluid. In my feeble mind, since the forks were...

    Hey all; does anyone know the fork oil capacity in cc's for the Touring forks?

    As I am changing the fork oil in my beast, the only thing I have found in the manual is 110mm below the top of the tube compressed. Does any one have other information? Thanks to all in advance!

    Front Fork Oil Weight?

    I am replacing my Roadsters front springs and rear shocks with Progressives. After looking in the owners manual and doing a search (albeit fast) I cannot find the stock front shock oil weight which is what Progressive calls for. Help please.

    Is fork dipping when front brakes applied at very slow speed normal?

    I know this sounds like a dumb question but I've been curious about this since buying my new R3T a few months ago and I thought I'd finally ask other R3T owners to see if this is normal. My R3T front forks will dive (compress) sharply even when applying the front brake even while pushing it...

    Front fork preload

    i am another big dude on a tourer. I wanted to ask if anyone has shimmed the front springs to add preload and if so, the results. Back in my dirt bike days certain fork kits came with thick walled pvc to trim and put under the fork caps. Per Race Tech, the bike comes with a .78 rate spring and...

    Replaced Fork Seals - Surprise

    Replaced the fork seals today, all went according to directions found here on the R3 forum, thanks for the instructions guys. Replaced the springs with Progressives that I got off of eBay for $70. My big surprise was that on one of the seals, there were no springs and on the other one, just...

    Maxton fork cartridges GP30 in USA?

    After my first 1200 miles on the girl, I do believe she needs new garters... there are lots of options for the rear, but not the front. It seems clear to me that the front needs more than springs, it needs better valving. While the ride was OK on the big slab, corners left it wallowing. Why...

    Fork issue?

    So I went to the garage this morning and found what appears to be some sort of seal or gasket on the right front fork. Is this something that is easily replaced and can it be ridden with this piece missing?

    Recondition fork tubes

    Hello there Im just wondering if anybody has had any experience with rechroming their fork tubes and also coating them in black? If so, what price am I looking at? Thanks

    With the exception of the black color, Are the front forks on the Roadsters the same as those of the earlier Classic and Standard? Thinking about having the silver on my Roadster.

    White Plastic Ring, R# Touring Front Fork:

    Pulled my '08 Rocket III Touring out of the garage. Noticed a white plastic ring around the lower leg, above the fender. Ring is about a 1/4" top to bottom, thin and fragile, bigger dia than the fork tube, smaller than the upper fork tube cover. The ring obviously fell down from within the upper...
