Hi Paul

Do you have an update. Do you buy any in the end?

Thanks

Pete

Hi Pete,

Never got an answer from Brooke Suspension so I'm going to use the Racetech system - hopefully I'll be getting it fitted in 2 to 3 weeks time.

Cheers
Paul

Hi,

My bike is away with RTR Motorcycles having some dyno work done - I have asked them to fit the Racetech Emulator and springs - I'll report back once the bike is returned.

Cheers
Paul

Hi,

I was busy at work so M.E. Motorcycles of Burton have just fitted the emulators for me - they didn’t give any problems - once the weather warms up I’ll collect the bike and report back how it handles.

I bought Racetech Emulators and springs from PDQ in the UK http://www.pdq1.com/brand.php?BrandID=11 who were very helpful and gave a fast service.

Cheers
Paul

Just wondering how these emulators have performed as I'm also interested in the same. Cheers.

I now have a set of emulators and springs appropriate for my weight also from Racetech. Hopefully fitting on Saturday

I’ve still to ride the bike - but even stationary the bike seems better supported and less prone to dive when I push down on the bars against the brakes.

I’ll post details once it’s been ridden - my bike is currently having some jetting/CDI/YPVS work done by a local Dino operator.

Cheers
Paul

Not sure this is necessary, but if the RaceTech cartridge emulators aren't ideal - maybe a custom made set would do the trick.

I know someone making a set, just for his own purposes. Quite sure someone could do the same here to achieve better results.

Ok, I finally got around to buying some race tech fork emulators and correct springs for my weight. They are fitted and a decent ride is planned for tomorrow. Only done a few miles so far and there is a noticeable difference
