PRO Drag Racing Forks
Three distinct fork options from RPS Manufacturing…
Our forks are already legendary for cutting 60' times, WHILE allowing consistent 330's and overall ET....AND IMPROVING REAR WHEEL TRACTION! Yes, did you know that forks can improve your rear traction? With our professional builds, we provide smooth and reliable weight transfer to the rear tire without any negative effects. This includes controlling wheelies BETTER!
All Forks from RPS Manufacturing include laser etching and "Superbike fork height indicators"
PRO Drag Racing Forks provide up to 7 inches of fork length reduction AND give customers USABLE SUSPENSION. The key to our PRO Drag Racing Forks is that we give customers up to 25 TIMES the rebound damping that is provided in a stock fork. In addition, the stock adjusters become functional and customers can actually “tune” their forks if they desire.
This new product offering from RPS Manufacturing was done for two reasons:
SAFETY – After witnessing how most vendors “slam forks”, the customer is left with nothing more than a strut OR even worse a super stiff front fork with no damping that can actually EXAGGERATE negative features of a track by having “spring with no damping”. With no movement OR actual “suspension”, riders can crash when they try to casually “grab the front” brake as they slow down to exit the track.
PERFORMANCE – Ultimately, this product is all about performance. Specifically, with actual suspension that ABSORBS the energies created by bumps, track irregularities, and the motorcycle itself, customers of PRO Drag Racing Forks can count on more stability, better chassis reaction to weight transfer, and overall improved performance.
FORK KITS FROM RPS MANUFACTURING
PRO FORK Mk II - The Pro Fork Mk II kit generally reduces the length of forks by about 3.5” to 4”. Big Piston forks generally can be reduced by about 3.5” to 3.75”. Conventional damper rod forks can be reduced by 3.75” to 4”. We like to always have at least a ½” to ¾” of travel so that fork can work properly. Here are some references to help you:
BIG PISTON FORKS – These are normally installed on newer model GSXR’s, ZX-10’s, and Kawasaki H2’s.
STANDARD DAMPER ROD FORKS – These forks are generally on ZX-14’s, Hayabusa’s, and Pre-2009 GSXR’s
REAL STREET - For ZX-14's, we can provide maximum fork height reduction without any additional cost. On some Suzuki's, there is $50.00 additional charge for machining the damping rod to prevent rebound and compression valve collision.
YOUR COST IS 549.00
TURNED DOWN FORKS - Made for the racer that wants to expand their chassis down the road without "having to send their forks back in to have the outer tubes machined" OR TO HAVE MAXIMUM ADJUSTMENT WITH STOCK TRIPLE CLAMPS, this package is the big bad daddy for the price package.
Turned down forks provide almost height adjustment with stock triple clamps that you can't get elsewhere.
Custom inserts for the stock triple clamps allows these forks to serve you well and maximum chassis options. Ballast can be added for maximum unsprung weight.
YOUR COST IS 679.00 OR 699.00 with inserts (Inserts are normally 79.00) with racer discounts available. Ballast is generally 75.00 per pound. We can add up to approximately 5 pounds of unsprung weight per leg for a total maximum weight of 11 pounds per leg. .
PRO STREET/GRUDGE FORKS - NEED THE SHORTEST FORK AVAILABLE? Pro Street/Grudge forks are generally delivered at 24"-24.5" lengths, BUT we can easily accommodate 21" - 23" requests.
Made with the highest quality internals components, the RPS Manufacturing PRO STREET/GRUDGE FORKS have won in the premiere PRO Street class with its excellent tracking and smooth performance.
YOUR COST IS 949.00 OR 1049.00 with ballast (per Pro Street Rules)
REMEMBER RPS MANUFACTURING WILL SEND YOU A UPS "TAPE ON LABEL" TO SAVE YOU MONEY ON SHIPPING!
QUESTION: “ARE THE PRO FORK MK II (549.00) CUT FORKS?”
ANSWER: “No, “Cut Forks” are when the outer tube and fork are “cut” (to reduce over length), then the outer tube is welded back together OR CUT and then re-threaded for the cap (depending on the service provider you used previously).
QUESTION: “I HAVE CUT FORKS FOR PRO STREET, CAN YOU MODIFY THEM TO WORK LIKE YOURS?
ANSWER: “We have found that most previous manufacturers overcut or damage the stock components, so the real answer is generally NO.”
QUESTION: "WHAT DO I NEED TO GET MY FORKS DONE?"
ANSWER: “So long as your fork is fully intact, just send us the forks…we do the rest.”
QUESTION: "CAN I RESTORE MY ORIGINAL FORK LENGTH OR MODIFY IT AGAIN AFTER RPS DOES IT'S INITIAL WORK?"
ANSWER: "Yes. RPS professionally modifies your fork. You can restore or change anything you like. There is a small charge though...usually less than $150.00"
