Gold Valve Kits for KYB Airforks on 2013 KXF and CRF 450s

The Compression Gold Valves are designed to maintain proper firmness and provide a great feel in the rider's hands. They also provide drastically increased bottoming resistance.

The Rebound Gold Valves are extremely important to eliminate restrictions from the stock piston designs on both the CRF450 and KX450F. Rebound Gold Valves create a plush initial feel and rapidly improve traction.

Like all of Race Tech's Gold Valve Kits, these kits all come with personalized valving settings to create Factory level Works Suspension available to you. Each Gold Valve Kit is 100% Guaranteed to exceed even your highest expectations, or your money back!

G3-LD GOLD VALVES
for STOCK SHOCKS
 

 
►Gold Valves
are custom bolt-on damping performance kits. They allow you to valve your stock shock for any rider specification and ability. They can be installed by most competent mechanics.

Get a custom setup that can be installed by any competent suspension tech (we can do the install if you'd like).

The new LD Series Gold Valves have proven to have outstanding traction while providing excellent bottoming resistance and feel.

►Available for most 2012 models
Or call 951.279.6655

REBOUND SEPARATOR VALVE

Rebound Separator Valves replace the Shock Shaft Nut and with an asymmetric valve that flows through the Low-Speed Rebound Adjuster. This means Low-Speed Rebound Damping can be set for excellent traction while keeping the Compression nice and firm. This dramatically increases traction while giving better bottoming resistance.

Try it - you'll like it! Guaranteed! ►Learn More

*Special thanks to Terry Hay of Australia's Shock Treatment for both the Telescopic PDS Needle and the Rebound Separator Valve.

REBOUND GOLD VALVE KITS
 

►Rebound Gold Valve Kits offer the advantage of custom valving on both  Mid-Valves as well as Rebound Valving stacks. Available for most forks.

 2010-2013 YZ450F - "The Racer X Package"

The latest generation YZ450F has known handling issues. To resolve those issues, Race Tech is offering the Racer X YZ450F Package including Springs, Gold Valves, Oil, and Labor.

The first step to properly setting up any motorcycle's suspension is a proper spring-rate. Race Tech's Hi-Performance Springs are lightweight with extremely accurate rates, and known as the best in the business.

Initially, Gold Valves give the bike a much plusher feel over the small bumps and chatter. Gold Valves are also scientifically engineered to provide great bottoming resistance on hard landings. The Gold Valve kit for the YZ450F is designed to settle down the busy rear end and provide great feel to the rider's hands.

To get rid of the stink bug feeling, the shock is lowered. This provides a much more stable, balanced and predictable feel.
