View Full Version : Racetech Gold Valves Worth it? Other options?

Hey guys,
I've done quite a bit of searching on this forum and others on viable upgrades to our suspension. I know there are options such as new Ohlins front forks and new Penske rear shock (among others), but I'm looking for more information on rebuilding/upgrading the stock units.

I've found some limited reviews/information on Race Tech and Traxxion Dynamics but would like some more personal reviews from other Buell owners on their experience with these upgrades. I specifically called Race Tech about their gold valve rebuild and re-spring for the front forks and rear shock and was quoted just over $1200. This seems a bit high but I would make the leap if I got more information from other Buellers that did this upgrade and enjoyed it's benefits on the street and the track.

Please chime in guys about Racetech gold valves or any other viable aftermarket options for our Buells. I'd love to learn more about upgrading the most important part of the bike so I can get faster at the track.
