Suspension Fork Closed Cartridge Extreme - BMW F800GS 08-12
Putting it simply, the Touratech Suspension Cartridge Kit Extreme is a suspension strut for the fork and the absolute top end in terms of suspension technology. The Closed Cartridge is installed into the original fork. This way the fork bridge/handlebar mount, brakes and wheel control and handlebar geometry are retained in full. No additional modifications to the fork are required.
This Closed Cartridge is been developed perfectly for touring and riding with frequent and strongly differing loads and riding conditions or extreme requirements.
The Extreme setup compensates for any volume of luggage, from the rear bag to a loaded luggage system and/or a pillion rider. Spring preload, compression and rebound can be fully adjusted top-side. The damping oil is contained in a closed cartridge which allows precise dosing of the amount of oil. Thus the Closed Cartridge offers a significantly more refined and pleasant response behavior of the fork. The finely adjusted damping allows effective and precise suspension settings to match your personal riding style at all times, for all road conditions and intended uses, regardless of motorways/fast roads, country roads, country lanes, off-road sections, long-distance travel with big luggage or a speedy, ambitious driving style. Should exceptionally tough road conditions act on the front wheel, the integrated "Hydraulic End stop" prevents mechanical impacting of the fork.
You will experience a completely new ride with your motorbike.

- For precise damping settings at high damping frequency and high load (poor roads, off-road with luggage).
- High damping stability and robustness through use of 35 mm piston.
- Closed design (Closed Cartridge), hence closed oil cartridge for damping and the oil in the fork is for lubrication only.
- Damping oil (cartridge) and nitrogen, in a nitrogen accumulator at the base of the cartridge.
- Extremely refined response behavior of the fork while providing high durability and stability at the same time.
- The separation of oil and nitrogen avoids foam formation and no stickslip in the fork.
- This means reproducible damping performance at all times, even under the most extreme conditions.
- Prevents the fork from going solid. Each cartridge is fitted with an "Hydraulic end stop" against against impacting.
