Sports Valve sus­pen­sion em­u­la­tors $470 NZ (ap­prox £230)

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

Fit­ting em­u­la­tors to older fork de­signs with damper rods in­tro­duces an el­e­ment of damp­ing ad­just­ment that the rider would­nõt oth­er­wise have. Em­u­la­tors have been around for a good while, but these new ones dif­fer in the sense that they al­low the rider to al­ter the re­bound damp­ing as well as the com­pres­sion damp­ing. The man­u­fac­tur­ers out in New Zealand (the Sports Mo­tor­cy­cles peo­ple who be­came fa­mous for sup­port­ing Mike Hail­woodõs fairy­tale TT come­back vic­tory) say this de­sign also al­lows ad­just­ment with the em­u­la­tors in situ. That makes them more con­ve­nient and means less loss of fork oil than with ex­ist­ing de­signs that need to be fished out of the forks for ad­just­ment. Theyõre avail­able for 32mm43mm fork stan­chions and the price in­cludes ship­ping, but not any im­port du­ties that may be ap­plied.
