This closed-cartridge has been designed to replace the OEM unit in the left fork leg, and gives a much plusher, comfortable ride, and can cope with the addition of extra weight such as a passenger or luggage for the S100XR sports/tourer.
Putting it simply, the Touratech Suspension Cartridge Kit 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 passenger & luggage, and works perfectly in both Dynamic & Road options.
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 etc. Should exceptionally tough road conditions act on the front wheel, the integrated "Hydraulic Endstop" prevents mechanical impacting of the fork.
