Racetech G2-R Gold valve;
There is a limitation with re-valving as we are limited to the parameters of the stock piston design. By replacing the stock piston with a Gold Valve we can now exceed those limitations and extend our tuning capability. When it comes to manipulating oil flow, piston design is key. The very force that a shim stacks will experience is determined by the dimension of the piston port area.
Larger ports are desirable where less progression is required. Smaller ports for more progression. Progression is a word whose sound is better than its meaning. We all like the sound but in fact, we can get too much of a good thing. To “progress” simply means to transition from one state to another. In suspension terms, we transition from soft to hard. If damping is too progressive we will experience a lack of initial control followed by extreme harshness……very soft to very hard.
The latest incarnation from Race Tech is the G2R valve with tunable port dimension. This valve body provides the ability to not only tune port dimension but also allows for preloading and negative preloading of the shim stacks. This now provides the ability to achieve “digressive” valving as well. Very useful for Supercross , motard and road race situations.
The valve allows maximum tunability leading naturally to maximum performance. This is very exciting for Alltech suspension the ability to solve so many problems with so few limitations.
For Motocross, Offroad, Trial, Hillclimb, Supermoto, Street, Road Race, Drag Racing and many other applications.
