Hello all ZX-10R.net friends and family!

We're running a special promo for a limited time on the best fork kit out there for your 16+ ZX-10R / RR / SE fork, the Ohlins FKR 100 series kit.

This kit has dominated the WSBK Stock 1000, MotoAmerica Stock1000, BSB Stock1000, ASBK and most other production-based series around the world. It provides excellent feel, braking support and grip with a high level of tune-ability. This kit completely eliminates the numb feeling the OEM cartridge provides deep in the stroke and on trail braking and will provide a better steering feeling as well. Each kit comes with 3 sets of springs.

For a limited time, we're offering a free installation of this kit, along with a free revalve to our spec and settings, with SKF seals installed.
For more info, please DM us!




More details on the FKR 100:

The new racing inspired FKR cartridge kit has technology derived straight from the Moto3, Moto 2 and World Superbike championships developed by engineers at Öhlins HQ in Sweden. The new FKR is the cartridge kit to have for riders who demands the best performance from their bike. Designed for high-end top level racing in SuperStock and SuperSport classes, the new FKR cartridge kit will give you loads of performance.

The FKR Cartridge kit features a spring pressurized system, compared to the old gas pressurized system, the spring pressure offers a more simplistic and user friendly design. That also accounts for easier maintenance and setting changes. But there are more advantages of a spring pressurized system. There is no risk of gas leakage, it also gives a more consistent performance curve and allows for a more compact design. The Öhlins engineers decided to completely transform the FKR to its predecessor. With the Öhlins TTX technology, a new designed piston and an 8mm piston shaft we reduce the pressure build-up and create a faster damping response. That gives a “linear” style of damping characteristics which create more tuning options and also Increases grip & bump absorption properties while improving chassis stability. The Öhlins engineers also decided to make the FKR less sensitive to shim changes making it easier to fine tune the cartridge kit to your specific liking and for different tracks if you are racing.

Features:

-TTX Technology
-Fits most large displacement bikes
-Easier maintenance
-Spring pressurized system
-8mm piston shaft
-Technology from Moto 3 Moto 2 and World Superbike
-Compact design
-Complete setting library
-Delivered with three different spring rates

Wanted to ask the price for the cartridge kit. Also do you still retain the full function of the stock fork with the new kit. I had one person mention to me that you didn't retain the full function with the new type forks on the 10R's.

They are probably referring to the change from Nitrogen pressurization to spring pressurization - perhaps? You still have a full range of adjustment and massively improved feel. This kit is very dominant in Superstock / Supersport classes because of it's excellent feel.

I'm relatively sure he is talking about the fact that the OEM valve adjusters no longer work once the self-contained Ohlins cartridges are installed and the Damping adjustments move to the top of the fork. This often gets misrepresented amongst the ill-informed commonly found at Bike Nights all over this country and even by some trackday experts. You know like the guy that has to raise his hand 3 or more times in a riders meeting to make sure he gives pertinent advice to all the other trackday riders about exiting or entering the track etc because he is so much more experienced with this than the guy giving the riders meeting speech...
