Setiap minggu kita berusaha untuk kongsikan ilmu suspension baru melalui artikel dan info video. Kalau info ini menarik please SUBSCRIBE and SHARE. Terima kasih kerana support channel Kratos Motorsports.
So minggu ini kita dihadapkan dengan Suspension dari CBR600RR tahun 2009. Pada mulanya nak buat tuning tapi rupanya bahagian adjuster telah jammed. Bila dipusingkan preload spring yang berpusing! Oh no! First impression pon dah ke laut! Rebound damping dan Compression damping pun dah kurang sangat.
Memandangkan usia mono shock ini yang dah layak dapat cucu ni expectation tak tinggi lah kan. Tapi biarlah semua factor di periksa dahulu sebelum nak buang mono yang telah berjuang & berjasa selama 12 tahun ni. CBR600RR bro... moto pahlawan ni.
Disebabkan swing arm yang tebal lagi sasa keadaan sebenar mono shock ini tidak dapat kita lihat dengan jelas. Tidak mengapa.... kita remove to inspect. Baru naik sikit dari swing arm sudah nampak jelas masalah ini. Preload mono ini telah dimakan karat. Also compression and rebound damping ketara lembut bila diuji.
Ok sebelum nak BUANG atau SIMPAN atau GANTI atau UPGRADE monoshock here are some good tips to share....every rider can check it your self (Tips ini boleh guna untuk semua komponen suspension sebenarnya).
No 1... FUNCTIONALITY. Kalau mono masih boleh berfungsi kita simpan kalau tidak boleh berfungsi buang/ganti sebelum ianya memudaratkan. Look for oil leak or oil rings around the center shaft. This shows the seals dah keras atau haus. Next ada bunyi bile mono bergerak..(becareful mono, swing arm, rantai masing-masing akan keluarkan bunyi yang berasingan), Seterusnya rebound damping atau compression damping kurang. Moto selalu melompat sana sini. Langgar bumper/lubang sikit, belakang moto melantun-lantun lagi sampai 2 lampu traffik ke hadapan. Dah kenalpasti masalah get a suspension specialist to check and confirm. Good and trustworthy advise can save you $$$$$ and a lot of headache.
No 2... UPGRADEABILITY. Kalau ada ada function barulah fikirkan untuk upgrade. Nak upgrade apa? Kita upgradelah spring mono shock ini melihat kepada kesesuaian fizikal rider (ie berat rider/pembonceng/boxes dsb) dan keseuaian riding style (ie race/track/weekend/long distance atau pergi balik kerja). Jangan upgrade melihat orang sebelah. Buat upgrade dengan nasihat pakar suspension....kalu tak tau nak cari mana ...kat Ara Damansara ada satu kedai : )
No 3... Ok than if No Functionality .... and/or No Upgradability maka buanglah yang keruh dan ambil yang jernih. Yes upgrade benda yang tidak ada function atau simpan mono yang ada function tapi tidak boleh di suaikan dengan berat rider atau jenis tunggangan yang di perlukan..... adalah BAWARUSA (Bazir Wang Rugi Masa). Again your suspension specialist akan berikan nasihat yang terbaik dalam hal ini.
Kembali kepada Mono shock CBR600RR ini selepas di uji ternyata ada functionalty kerana adjuster rebound dan compression ada effect lagi. So kita kembalikan pressure Nitro dan uji semula. Syukur kedua-dua damping hidup semula. Malangnya springnya Tiada Esok Bagi Mu lagi. No issue kerana K-tech ada spring upgrade yang bersesuaian. Ikuti seterusnya process restoration dan upgrade dalam info video kami.

K-tech Suspension has taken its place on all three steps of the TT podium this year with riders Dean Harrison, Connor Cummins and Daley Mathison.
The performance motorcycle suspension manufacturer achieved four podium successes throughout the action-pack event, including in the Senior, Superbike, Supersport and TT Zero races.
The Isle of Man TT is the annual pinnacle of the road racing calendar and attracts thousands of motorcyclists to the island each year looking to soak up the atmosphere and witness the incredible speeds and rider skill achieved around the iconic 37.73 mile course.
Dean Harrison finished second in the first Supersport race, but also raced to victory and the top step of the podium in the second Supersport race, reaching speeds of 126.703mph with K-tech’s DDS front fork cartridge kit in his Silicone Engineering Kawasaki.
In the TT Zero class, Daley Mathison and the University of Nottingham team secured an impressive second place, reaching speeds of 119.294mph on the electric bike complete with K-tech’s superbike front forks and DDS Pro rear shock.
Also riding his way to a podium place was Manx-man Connor Cummins on his Padgett’s Racing Honda Fireblade, who enjoyed a second place in the first Superbike race and a well earned third placed podium in the highly anticipated Senior TT finale.
Throughout the TT, K-tech’s team of experienced race technicians have been assisting racers and teams across the different classes in the event, offering advice and suspension support from the dedicated race support truck in the TT paddock.
The K-tech race support team also raised over £1000 for Noble’s Hospital and the Isle of Man Air Ambulance from hosting two public Suspension Set-Up Clinics during race week, which saw over 150 local and visiting motorcycle riders benefit from improved bike handling and safety due to improved and correct suspension set up and advice.

Now available in the market is the K-Tech's gas-filled Razor and Razor Lite shocks catered for the Triumph T120, Street Twin and Thruxton, offering Hinckley twin owners improved comfort, handling and precision adjustment.
These gas-filled shocks are styled to fit the Bonneville's retro lines. Both Razor and Razor Lite come in a subtle and traditional black finish, yet contain the latest in suspension technology.
UK-designed using K-Tech's vast experience in the race paddock, both are nitrogen-filled, providing more consistent internal pressure as the damper operates, for a smoother ride.
Razor and Razor Lite's rebound damping is also adjustable by hand just by using the dial at the base of the shock absorber. What's more is it's length is also adjustable by up to 10 mm, simply by turning the nuts above the spring, (one turn = 1 mm, so it is easy to measure).
These Razor shocks also feature a piggyback reservoir, with an additional hand-dial at the collar, for quick and easy compression damping adjustment.
Both Razor and Razor Lite units are direct replacements for the original equipment and are available for the T120, Street Twin, Thruxton 1200 and the Scrambler (up to 2015).
Razor Lite shocks for the Bonneville range retail for £594.00 including VAT.
Razor shocks for the Bonneville range sell for £954.00 including VAT.

Also utilising the championship-winning DDS technology is K-Tech’s DDS Pro, which not only offer’s riders the selection of tunings seen on the DDS Lite, but also includes a unique ByPass Valve adjuster which assists with chassis control at low velocity movement and a hydraulic spring preload adjuster.
Also custom-made to fit the Suzuki GSX-R1000R are K-Tech’s IDS and DDS front fork cartridges. Built with quality in mind, both the IDS and DDS cartridges use aircraft grade aluminium, which is hard anodised to maintain performance and durability.
Like all product’s in K-Tech’s well established portfolio of products, the IDS damping system offers riders a complete replacement option, which includes independent compression and rebound damping adjustment and spring preload.
Used at the highest levels of racing, K-Tech’s patent DDS cartridges are also a complete replacement damping system designed to increase control, improve dynamics and response time. Developed using K-Tech’s extensive experience in the race industry, this pressurised damping system also offers a wide range of adjustments with precise control and stability.

K-Tech's gas-filled Razor and Razor Lite shocks are now available to fit the beefy Kawasaki ZRX1100/1200
The ZRX was produced between 1997 to 2006 and weighs more than 220kg. Also, the original twin shock absorbers fitted to the big Kawasaki used to struggle to cope.
With K-Tech's extensive experience in the race paddock, the UK designed nitrogen-filled Razor shocks offer refined handling and precision adjustment for increased comfort and control.
Rebound damping on both Razor and Razor Lite shocks can be hand adjusted, by turning the dial at the base of the shock absorber, and adjusting the length is also a possibility.
The Razor shocks also feature a piggyback reservoir for the nitrogen, which allows for compression damping adjustment that can be operated by hand, using the dial at the top of the reservoir.
Tailor-made to fit the ZRX1100 (1997-2001) and ZRX1200 (2002-2006), the Razor units are direct replacements for the original equipment. They are produced in an understated anodised black finish and allow owners of twin shock motorcycles to customise their ride for an improved appearance and performance.
