We've tested the cartridge kit last year at the Rumanian Classic Rally and it worked well. HPN has also tested it and has found that is more responsive than the Marzocchi kit. We since reworked the damping system. We've worked with an additional damper piston under compression. Because of this we've been getting a better response from the fork. Normally the system works without an additional compression setting at the bottom. Ohlins and the Japanese systems use a one-way valve system. Additionally, We have integrated a hydraulic stop (Hydro stop) at the bottom end. This is why it took so long, as we had to have new springs made up for this.

Hopefully, this makes sense. I am not a professional translator.
hmmm given that 1 am 90kg sans riding gear AND the pd has a large tank maybe i should get the firmer springs.

I received the invoice from Hubert today!! 588 euro plus 70 s&H. That is the same price as on the webpage, so it looks like no discount. Need to inquire about the adjustment knob though. Payment to paypal, which make things easy for me. Bad thing is I won't have these in time for my TAT adventure to the MOA Rally. I don't want to rush putting these things in the day before I leave.

Just received reply that the adjustment knobs are included.

If these fit the 80g/s forks I'd so be in... almost looks like it would be worth getting a new bike just to be able to use a set! Can't wait to hear the feedback and photos!

turst me you wouldn't want to waste the money on G/S forks. Find some GS forks and be happy. The stock GS forks are ok, but this should be the cat's meow. I sent the money via paypal already.

Funny thing is Koko, said how slow Hubert was in replying to emails, I sent one off after receiving his invoice inquiring about the adjustment knobs..I got a reply within 30 minutes......money changing hands must be very motivating

Well, I too got an invoice and photos!
As to the discount over the web page price, I'm not holding my breath on that one. I have a feeling that this project cost Hubert a bit of money. I wonder if he really actually had a fully finished product for the R100 series? A few inquiries he was able to put it off, but suddenly there's Kokopelli breathing down his neck telling him there's a bunch of these guys he knows....so Hubert is going "oh crap, better get on with this......"
From what I gathered from trolling the various euro forum sites, relating to suspension issues, is that he produces a great product! Customers are quite pleased with the results but the wait times are well.... long

Question for those who have sent money to HH-Racetech,
Did you just send the paypal payment to the info@hh-racetech email through the paypal webpage? or is there something on HH-Racetech's webpage that I'm missing?
Thanks,
E.

I sent it to(info@hh-racetech) and the order was confirmed through Race Tech.

Hello Mr. Seaton,

thank you for your payment.
We send the cartridge-kit tomorrow, because
it’s 6:15 pm in Germany.

Have a nice day

Cornelia Hofmann

Stage, maybe they don't want you to have these things as you're like a child who abuses his toys and doesn't appreciate them.

I went directly to PayPal, pulled the payment info from the invoice, then paid to the Race Tech address mentioned earlier. VAT wasn't included on the invoice.

Hey now! dont be mean!
How could they have possibly figured that out? I'm sure my reputation does not extend quite so far.

I love my bike and want to beat the shit out of the very best parts I cannot afford.

Bill me, baby! I need an invoice!

I've just inquired regarding the discount. I suspect the order was handled by staff who were not aware of the group buy. Every time I've asked him about it he said that the price would stand.
