Included in this kit are fork springs, Cogent DDC (Drop in Damper Cartridge) performance cartridges and two bottles of 5w fork oil.
These springs are custom wound specifically for the XT225. Stiffer than the .36 kg/mm stock springs, these will make your front perform significantly better. Combine them with the Cogent DDC's and you will be very happy with the results. Sold as pairs.
These Cogent Drop-in Dynamic Cartridges will vastly improve both the compression and rebound damping of your stock forks. No disassembly of your forks, no drilling of damper rods. Just change the oil to 5w and install the DDCs under the springs and hit the trails.
Stiffer fork springs are required to realize the full benefits of the DDCs. .42 kg/mm springs are the springs recommended for just about anybody out there. Please call if you have any further questions.
The DDCs are not recommended for use with progressive springs.
The DDC Install/Removal Tool which makes installation that much easier.
Emulators make damping rod forks perform like well-tuned cartridge forks. Emulators are tunable valves that sit inside your forks on top of the damping rods and are held in place by the fork springs. Simple to install and completely tunable for all conditions and rider preferences.
Low friction 'triple lip' seal design. Oil seals last 3-4 times longer that OEM seals. Kit includes Fork Seals and dust wipers.
High quality fork boots. Sold in Pairs.
Choose from; black, red, royal blue, yellow, or light blue.
Helps protect vulnerable fork tube and seal from dust, dirt, and corrosive elements. These are sewn into a tube and require that you drop your fork tubes down out of the triple clamp for installation. Can still be slid up for easy cleaning. Sold in pairs
The Modoc is an excellent replacement for the stock shock. With adjustable rebound damping and preload, you can tailor the performance to match your riding style.
Select the spring you want installed based on the load you plan to carry. For most riders, the 7.1 kg/mm spring will suit you perfectly. Weigh more than 250 lbs, or are loaded to the max, think about the 8.1 kg/mm spring. Please call with any questions.

Based on the wildly popular Race Tech Suspension Seminars taught by Paul Thede around the world, this step-by-step guide shows riders how to make their bikes handle like the pros. Thede gives the lowdown on all types of suspension, including cartridge and non-cartridge forks as well as dual-chamber and nitrogen-charged shocks.
The three forces of suspension, testing procedures, even the black arts of chassis geometry: Thede explains it all. The book provides step-by-step photos of suspension disassembly and assembly as well as a detailed troubleshooting guide for dirt, street and track.
Use this installation tool from Cogent to be sure that your Cogent Drop-in Dynamic Cartridges are installed correctly. A strong magnet in the end holds the cartridge firmly while you lower it into your fork leg. Then slide the spring over the tool until it holds the DDC down, then gently remove the tool. That simple. Never again question if it is properly seated on the damper rod.
Works equally well for removal when you need to change your fork oil. Also works great with Race Tech Emulators.
Having the proper fork oil level is imperative to the handling of your bike. Setting the correct fork oil level is a snap with this fully adjustable gauge. The adjustable aluminum level plate can be set from 0 to 295mm. The oil reservoir has single milliliter markings up to 60ml.
Being able to accurately tune your forks by adjusting the oil level can make them better resist brake dive or bottoming. Oil level should be thought of as a fine tuning method to make your choice of spring rate work perfectly for your bike.
Showa removed the schrader valve on many newer rear shocks. Now you need a needle to recharge your shock with nitrogen after a rebuild. Race Tech built this unit just for that job.
The features of this tool include 300 psi capacity, bleeder valve and T-handle plunger pin chuck. Swivel chuck has a 12" flexible hose. Comes complete with instructions, carrying box and Schrader valve extension (required on some Showa shocks). Nitrogen bottles available at any welding supply house.
