First pics - New TOURATECH fork cartridges for the F800GS :)

Just found these pictures of the upcomming Touratech Closed fork cartridges being released shortly for the F800GS.

If they are anything like the rear dampers from Touratech / Tractive they should be damn good.

Probably as expensive too though....

They're also made by Tractive as far as I have been told.

Loutre, I can't say anything official as I'm not associated with Touratech in any way, but I can say this:

I have them on order myself since a couple of weeks now and was told delivery within 6-8 weeks with chance of delay as it is not officially released yet. This would translate into approximately mid August for my part

Hopefully I will be getting one of the first sets to arrive in my region, but not sure what availability status is for other parts of the world.

So before September might very well be possible, but best is to ask your local TT dealer...

These are not only for the F800 as the models will include the Triumph 800. As well as the Yamaha Super Tenere.
A closed cartridge system filled at the factory, all that's needed is to set the oil height.

The US market will be around 1700.00-1800.00.
We have a set on order to start testing as soon as they arrive.
We test all products and services thoroughly before offering them through our store.

Is there any way to fine tune them to someones riding style etc?

Let's someone puts a set in, and they are ok for mild fire road work, but when they get into baby heads etc, they are lacking. Can anything be done to fix that?

I'm definitely anxiously awaiting mine.

Will of course give a ride report once installed and tested but again it will take some weeks still to get them.

In the mean time, any information to share from reputable sources is a good thing so whomever gets any news / tips please post an update.

Got an answer:

So... as foreseen you exchange the complete interior of the fork. You can adjust rebound, preload and the compression of the spring. The kit is delivered with springs and oil and as usual you have to fill out some paperwork in order to get the spring and oil right. The price is 1349€ and will delivered to headquarters ~11 of august. One week later they'll be delivered to my shop in Aachen.

Cheers,

Tom

wow, that's even more than the öhlins fka 101 cartridge kit which I believe offers the same level of adjustability. will be good to see first reviews, although hardly anyone on the web will be like "i just bought a piece of kit for gazillion dollars and it's a piece of crap...". btw. i have touratech suspension on the rear and it works just fine, so not trolling.
