Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - What It All Means -

All the Ja­panese man­u­fac­tur­ers had their own anti-dive sys­tems in the 1980s. Honda’s was TRAC, which used torque from the front calipers when in use to close a valve in the forks, thus re­strict­ing oil flow and stiff­en­ing damp­en­ing – much like Kawasaki’s AVDS and Suzuki’s PDF sys­tems. If a bump was hit un­der brak­ing the valve opened again to in­crease damp­ing con­trol.
