►What is a Gold Valve and what does it do?

"I am writing to express my gratitude to RaceTech, for the work they performed on my 2004 BMW R1100S. They custom built an emulsion shock for the front ,and a piggyback design for the rear. On its maiden voyage, I went through the twisties of Ortega Highway, and was amazed. Never had the bike handled so competently. My riding confidence was significantly enhanced due to the improved handling and control."

"I would highly recommend Race Tech Suspension to any BMW rider."
Best Regards,
Allen Brooks




Get the best ride possible by installing Race Tech's Cartridge Emulators. Would you like to know why the Gold Valve Cartridge Emulator works so well? ►More Info

Race Tech's award winning Gold Valve Emulator Kits for Forks provide a personalized setup and adjustability. Gold Valves Emulators improve fork oil flow dramatically reducing harshness while actually increasing bottoming resistance (as shown with data acquisition). These Kits can often be installed by individuals interested in understanding and tuning their own suspension or they can be installed by a local Race Tech Center, Dealer or of course the Race Tech's Service Department. Gold Valve Kits include Installation Instructions, Tuning Guides and alternate parts to allow a custom setup and adjust ability for rider preference and type of riding.

 Total Control Advanced Riding Clinic      


In today's age of high-horsepower superbikes, large-displacement cruisers and super-heavy-weight touring bikes, riding skills are more important than ever for safe, fun motorcycling. Unfortunately for experienced riders, there is a large gap between the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's Experienced Rider Course (ERC) and the many racetrack schools around the country. Many riders are interested in improving their skills but are unwilling to take on the additional risks associated with a high-speed environment. If you fit into the "I'm interested, but" group, you're not alone. In fact, if you add up all the attendees of all the race schools together, they only represent a tiny percentage of street riders. This is not to say they are not good schools. To the contrary, they have much to offer. But they are not for everyone. Fortunately, Lee Parks' Total Control Advanced Riding Clinic (Total Control ARC) has a solution for those experienced riders "caught in the middle," as well as those track-day junkies and racers who want to be able to further enhance their skills in a controlled environment with expert instruction. ►Read More!

We offer multiple options to improve the F800ST suspension. Most riders find the stock suspension very soft and mushy. Gold Valve Emulators and RT Hi-Performance Fork Spring are available for the Forks as well as a G2-R 25mm Cartridge Kit that adds compression and rebound adjustment. For the rear we have a G3-S Custom Series Shock. ►More Info!  



Gold Valve Emulators and HP Fork Springs retain the plush ride along with firming the forks where you need it. This gives you the versatility to get aggressive or to take it easy. Get the best of both worlds! ►Product Search


I want to express my thanks to everyone at Race Tech for transforming my low suspension BMW f650gs twin to a competent off roader. Other riders were telling me that I could not have the low suspension and decent handling off road --especially at my hefty 230lb weight. Initially they were right, the bike would hop and skip in turns uncontrollably. Then, I got Race Tech involved and the bike was transformed. I would actually describe it as a "spirited off roader". It is controllable, glides over washboard, and stays on line in sand or gravel even at elevated speeds.

Further, on top of transforming my bike, your customer service was unparalleled. I was kept informed and every option was carefully explained to me. Quite simply, you guys are the best in the business. Thank you!

Thank you, Marty Biezad


We've dramatically improved the F800GS suspension! The main complaint about the bike is it's too soft. The suspension does not perform well when pushed, on or off road. Since the stock cartridge is non-revalvable we have G2-R 25mm Cartridge Fork Kit and RT Hi-Performance Fork Springs. On the rear we've developed a G3-S Custom Series Shock that works great. ►Find out More!


The R1200GS is excellent. Our goal was to make it firmer without losing plushness. We have a G3-S Custom Series Shock for the Teleleaver front end and one for the rear. There are two versions of the G3-S Shock available for the rear - with and without a remote reservoir. ►Get More Details!


Here we go again, another BMW project bike. The R1200RT suffers from the same too soft, too mushy feel as many others do. We are offering a revalve of the stock shocks with Gold Valve Conversion Kits. We also have G3-S Custom Series Shocks. ►Get the Details



Race Tech is the place for post-vintage and vintage BMW motorcycle suspension. On many models you can transform your suspension just by adding, easy to install, Gold Valve Emulators and RT Hi-Performance Fork Springs. The difference is amazing. We have fitments for many models with telescopic forks. Check our Product Search for components to fit your bike.

"I've had this bike for 29 yrs (1981 BMW R100CS), but having you guys do the suspension was the single most dramatic performance improvement I have ever made - Truly STUNNING!!"

"Thanks again,"
Dave Tinkler
