Touratech Introduces Fork Cartridge Conversion Kit for F800GS

New easy-install fork kit significantly improves the handling of your F800GS.

Published on 06.15.2016

After years of research and development and months of testing, Touratech is introducing a Fork Cartridge Conversion kit for the BMW F800GS and F800GS Adventure. Anyone that rides the stock F800GS hard will tell you the front end bottoms out too easily and with zero adjustability there isn’t much you can do to improve the ride.

This new suspension upgrade from Touratech completely transforms the front-end of the F800GS and it can be done quickly and easily in your own garage. The Fork Cartridge Conversion is a drop-in solution that replaces the internals of the stock fork tubes with cutting-edge suspension technology. This kit includes everything you need to install the cartridge system in each fork leg. The cartridges come pre-sprung, filled with oil and charged with nitrogen.

No modifications to the fork tubes, fork brace or brake system are necessary and a state-of-the-art bladder system is used instead of a floating piston. A closed cartridge separates the nitrogen and high-performance damping oil from the moving parts of the forks for smooth and consistent performance even in punishing environments. The system includes hydraulic-bottoming-prevention that works like a pillow to prevent the fork from bottoming out suddenly.

“The stock bike just feels harder to ride and less confidence inspiring the faster you try to ride it. That all changes with this cartridge system.”– Iain Glynn – Chief Riding Officer, Touratech-USA.

The Touratech Fork Cartridge Conversion Kit makes the F800GS front end fully-adjustable. Handling characteristics can be fine-tuned to match the terrain using rebound and compression damping nobs on the top of the fork tubes. Preload can also be set for different rider weights and loads. Different spring weights can be selected to customize the fork to your weight and riding style when you place your order.

The Touratech Fork Cartridge Conversion Kit for offers big performance improvements in difficult off-road terrain and makes the F800GS even more versatile for all types of terrain. Price is $1,795.00.
