Race Tech BPF Gold Valves

Have tried search.

Wodering if anyone has any experience with the Race Tech BPF gold valves.

Am trying to decide which way to go with upgrading the suspension on my K9 track bike, but there is not much feedback on how good these forks are with the BPF gold valves; I belive that the BPF piston diameter is 37mm, which is about half as much piston area again as 30mm cartridges. So, theoretically there may be some good gains with the right valving, but yet to see much feedback.

Look into replacing your BPF cartridges with Ohlins internals.

Huge difference, very happy here without having to buy complete Ohlins forks.

Turns out BPF are a joke, just cheaper to manufacture.

Re: Race Tech BPF Gold Valves

OK, makes sense, if they were any good then you'd think the forums would be alive with ppl singing their praises. Any idea about the fork cap extenions? Do they work with the K9?

Cheers
