Description Item #RAH0001

Gold Valves are Race Tech's Custom Valving Kits. They are designed to break through the limitations of stock piston designs. Research has shown that the stock piston ports induce unnecessary harshness. Gold Valves are designed to reduce piston restriction so harshness is dramatically reduced. This also allows the valving stack to be personally tailored to the individual rider. Tests have proven that bottoming resistance is actually increased as the harshness is decreased. Traction is also improved.

G2-R Fork Gold Valves:

  • Race Tech's new G2-R Fork Gold Valves are dual port pistons designed to optimize the loading of the shims while improving flow.
  • These versatile valves blow away all previous limitations with the shim stacks and valving.
  • The G2-R Gold Valves can be preloaded, freeloaded, and/or restricted for Supercross, Supermoto, Motocross, Trail, Enduro, and Hare Scrambles.
  • Includes complete instructions, Shock Gold Valve Piston, valving shims, valving charts and "Technical Edge Shock Maintenance and Gold Valve Installation" video.
  • Note: Gold Valve Kits are designed to be installed by competent individuals and suspension tuners. A few specialized tools are required. Race Tech also offers free support if you get stuck or into trouble.

Race Tech gold valve kit

The two stage dampning is the best mod. for KTM open chamber forks available. I've use it on 3 bikes, 12 300 XCW, 13 450 XCW, & 14 350 XCW. Well worth the cost. Most suspension shops can't do as good. Save yourself several hundred dollars, do it yourself!

Awesome value!

Keep in mind this package does not just come with a gold valve kit, it comes with the support and recommendations from Race Tech! As a 190lbs rider their recommendations really helped with keeping my forks up in the stroke during braking and substantially helped with bumps.

Race Tech Gold Valve Kit

The Race Tech G2R Fork Gold Valve Kit was as good as I had hoped it would be. It is a complete kit, which was very good, because I don't know much about fork suspension internals. With the help of my owners manual and Race Tech's Gold Vavle Kit, my forks are more fluid and the shims now keep the forks up more in the corners. This is what I was looking for and some experience working on my own forks for my comfort level.

A: Race Tech gold valves work great! I personally have ran them in my bikes for many years. I recommend them, you will definitely feel a difference.
Gold Valves have an improved flow design that dramatically reduces harshness while actually increasing bottoming resistance. Also, feel free to give us a call at 888-676-8853 and we would be happy to help you out with your order.

Q: How do you specify what each rider needs?
Over 8 months ago
The Race Tech kit directly from RT allows you to enter rider size and skill level as well as bike. When that happens RT calculates the shims that the rider will need. My question is how does this kit compare to RT specifically designed kit? How do you know what shim stack to use or if this kit will even have the ones needed?

A: Race Tech's G2-R Gold Valves are dual port, billet pistons designed to optimize the loading of the shims while improving flow. These versatile valves are the tuners choice because they can be preloaded (digressive) and/or restricted (progressive). Dirt, Road Race, Street, Off-road, and Supermoto. G2-R's are so versitle they can be valved to work like both Type 1 and Type 2 Gold Valves and more. They blow away all previous limitations like no other valve in the world - guaranteed!

Includes complete instructions, Gold Valve pistons, valving charts and valving shims.

Fork Gold Valves:
-TYPE 1 - High flow valving piston enables outstanding bottoming resistance while retaining a plush controlled ride. Extremely versatile.
For Motocross, Offroad, Trial, Hillclimb, Supermoto, Street, Road Race, Drag Racing and many other applications.

-TYPE 2 - Smaller ports increase bottoming resistance for more extreme types of riding. NOTE: These Kits will be harsher than Type 1.
For Aggressive Motocross, Supercross and Supermoto.

-G2-R - This valve offers the ability to change port size by changing restrictor shim diameter. It also has the ability to preload the valving stack for dive control. G2-R Damping Curves can be produced to mimic both Type 1 and Type 2 Kits. It can produce curves not available to T1 & 2 as well. The G2-R can be setup for any type of riding. It is the most versatile valve design in the world!
For Motocross, Offroad, Trial, Hillclimb, Supermoto, Street, Road Race, Drag Racing and many other applications.

-Rebound Gold Valves - Many rebound valving systems are grossly inadequate. No matter what modifications are attempted, the forks will never perform with precision and control. These Kits offer the advantage of both adjustable Mid-Valve and Rebound. Available for most Dual Chamber Showa, KYB and WP Forks.
For Motocross, Offroad, Trial, Hillclimb, Supermoto, Street and Road Race.

A: Sorry the Image we have is an old image and still shows the VHS tape (working on getting this updated). The current Gold Valve kit would in fact come with a DVD and not a VHS tape.
