Hi Guys

a friend of mine is very pleased with the Cartridge emulator in its RD350.

cheers

Damping Rod style forks are notorious for being both too harsh, too mushy and too easy to bottom. Gold Valve Cartridge Emulators remedy this problem by controling the damping with a tunable valve that sits on top of the damping rod and is held in place by the main spring.

Simply put; Emulators make damping rod forks perform like well-tuned cartridge forks. Installation and tuning for any condition or rider preference is very straight-forward.

They are a good improvement in KR and all damper rod forks. gives you internal adjustment of comp damping. more feel and better bump absorption

In the KR1S forks you need to shorten the springs to make room for them or use shorter springs

Race tech ones are better quality with better instructions but a lot more expensive
Hardcore you know the score
