The original fork Triumph offers minimal damping: the damping piston (index 8 on the attached diagram) is far too weak, in order to favour the "comfortable" nature of the bike. As a result, the front of the motorcycle is too flexible, which is fine for a "lazy" ride, but leaves much to be desired in terms of behavior (crash under braking, mellowing on irregular surfaces, imprecise curve behavior etc).
This kit adds restrictors within the damping pistons (at the bottom of the lower fork tubes), and valves above these pistons (junction with the spring). Damping becomes much more effective, giving a more precise behavior:
- less crashing under the small braking
- more rigorous riding on uneven surfaces
- cornering precision
High-precision parts in solid alloy, machined then hand-finished and anodized for longevity.
High-quality rubber seals.
Important fitment note : unless you already have it (or a similar tool), you need to order the optional tool to reach into the fork sleeves and disassemble the damping tube from the fork bottom.
Ideal complementary product : progressive fork springs.
