Touratech Suspension lowering Cartridge Kit -25mm for Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin from 2018
This Cartridge Kit is perfect for reducing the seat height (-25mm) on the Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin. Putting it simply, the Touratech Suspension Cartridge Kit Extreme is a suspension strut for the fork and the absolute top end in terms of suspension technology. The Closed Cartridge is installed into the original fork. This way the fork bridge/handlebar mount, brakes and wheel control and handlebar geometry are retained in full. No additional modifications to the fork are required This Closed Cartridge is been developed perfectly for touring and riding with frequent and strongly differing loads and riding conditions or extreme requirements.
The Extreme setup compensates for any volume of luggage, from the rear bag to a loaded luggage system and/or a pillion rider. Spring preload, compression and rebound can be fully adjusted top-side. The damping oil is contained in a closed cartridge which allows precise dosing of the amount of oil. Thus the Closed Cartridge offers a significantly more refined and pleasant response behaviour of the fork. The finely adjusted damping allows effective and precise suspension settings to match your personal riding style at all times, for all road conditions and intended uses, regardless of motorways/fast roads, country roads, country lanes, offroad sections, long-distance travel with big luggage or a speedy, ambitious driving style. Should exceptionally tough road conditions act on the front wheel, the integrated "Hydraulic Endstop" prevents mechanical impacting of the fork.
To ensure the parked stability of your Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin after it has been lowered, we recommend using shorter kick stand and/or the center stand.
