Racetech Suspension

Hi Adventure Riders,

Small introduction here, My name is Terry and I am a service tech at Racetech. If anyone is not familiar with Racetech we are a suspension only shop located in Corona, CA, Paul Thede (Owner) has designed several different suspension bits and pieces to make you suspension perform like it should all tailored to your weight, riding style and skill level.

I've emailed Racetech several times asking if they have any offerings for the Tiger 800(s). No one ever responds.

When did you send the emails and you don't by any chance have a aol.com address do you? Some put our emails in the spam folders.

Anyway if you tell me a year I will check on it. Also include your weight, riding style and skill level and I can make suggestions based off of that.

2011 Tiger 800 Roadie. I am 150lbs (the front suspension really sucks for lighter riders) . I don't ride this bike aggressively. Just looking for good on road manners.

Hey swimmer,

We have the 800XC in our system but not the Roadie, Since they are running 43mm Showa forks (According to the specs I have seen) we should be able to fit at minimum springs, I am not sure if Triumph decided to go with a sealed cartridge or not on that model but if you are interested in sending in the forks we can spec them out and build a kit for them and also offer a bit more of a discount since we are using yours for R&D work.

I can't say as to the Tiger 800 but Terry did my Tiger 1050 forks & they worked great. In fact, they are back out there now to replace leaking fork seals--not their fault. They will come back to me better than ever.

I am glad to hear Racetech is offering a discount for the ADVRIDER community.
I have used Racetech products in a few bikes and am very pleased and would not hesitate to order anything I need in the future.Especially with the 15 % discount !!
I also love the suspension book that was published a few years ago by Paul Thede.Top notch !!!

Good to see this. I let RaceTech upgrade the front suspension on my NC700x Honda and it was night and day.

Any Inmates in the Seattle area that are going to the IMS show stop in at the Racetech booth and introduce yourself. We are having IMS show specials and it will give me the chance to talk to a few of you.

DR200SE upgrade?

I am interested in upgrading my wife's 2004 Suzuki DR200SE suspension, especially the front, do you have anything available? I have sent emails in the past as well with no response.

Hi All,

I am heading to the Seattle IMS show tomorrow afternoon and then after the show spending some time with a Racetech center up in Idaho so I will not be back until after the new year. I will try and get the existing bike questions answered over the next few days at the show so please bear with me on this.

Those that are going to the Seattle IMS show I look forward to meeting you and discussing suspension improvements or just some friendly conversation.

Terry
