Gen4 Front Catridges

So what do you guys recommend? I am thinking Ohlins, AK, or K-tech for my front end. Looking to get the most for my money. I have an Ohlins TTX36mm rear shock.

Personally I'd match the front and rear for setup/service reasons. You don't want to have to find an ohlins tuner for your shock and ktech tuner for your forks.

Talk to Steve Breckinridge from Fluidology. Even though he's out of Jacksonville, he travels to many tracks in your area and has extensive knowledge on what you're asking. And he is a hell of a tuner! (904) 881-0512

Guess I'll get some Ohlins 30mm inserts. My poor wallet!

Have you considered having the springs changed and the valves re-worked by a local suspension guru. I know that locally many guys that race in the same club as me, some extremely fast, have gone this route with great success.

Mine are out right now for the same treatment, Ohlins springs with valving adjustment

I may go to the valve kit. I can't seem to find a ohlins kit. I may do Racetech.

Why would you even ask about cartridge kits if you don't want to spend the money? Ohlins are no more expensive then ktech or ak's (maybe a few $'s more).

If I wait I can afford Cartridge but I am thinking since I'm not the fastest I would just go with a re-valve kit. I'm looking to see if ohlins makes a 20mm valve kit.

Well if you wait there might be some popping up used with people going to the new gen.

I prefer to have equipment that's better than I am so saving up for better parts is the way I'd go.
