    gold valve emulators

    Race tech sells what they call gold valve emulators for front forks
    and stiffer front fork springs,i'm intereeted in the fork springs
    but the gold valve emulators have what sounds like a pretty fantastic
    claim just to sell parts "customers report 3 to 4 second faster lap
    times" Anyone have the gold valve emulators or a comment on race tech parts in general. www.racetech.com
    Weak as wet toilet paper.

    Is this a race bike? If yes, then emulators may be helpful, although a properly set up damper rod fork may not be the limiting factor in faster lap times.
    If it is not a race bike, what are your current complaints with your front suspension. It might help to mention what bike it is and what changes have been done to it so far.
    We don't object to pictures of the bike, girl friend or spouse either.

    From name I would guess its a 360
    Race tech gold valve emulators are probably more advantage on the road as conditions vary more and CB360's have pretty lousy forks, particularly when people remove front mudguard to look 'cool'
    Do they make them for 33mm forks?
    I thought 35mm was smallest they made?
    I dabble in rocket science, when I\'m not picking my nose
    The other night I gave my girlfriend an orgasm, but, she spat it back at me

    racetech makes pretty good stuff and the emulators make a dampener rod fork behave like a cartridge fork so yes the claims are pretty wild but there is a noticeable difference in the forks.

    PJ,
    Is it a honda CB360, Yamaha MX360, XS360? Didn't Bultaco or somebody make a 360? Maybe it was Greeves.

    yeah, Greeves made 360, Villiers engine, it was in some other late 60's/early 70's MX bike (I think AJS Starmaker?)
    Honda CB 360 is most common out there at present though so when people don't say exactly what it is (because they think there is only one 360) it's sometimes a safe assumption
    If it was something more obscure they tend to tell you.
