Drag Racing Suspension

Orient Express Racing carries K-Tech and Penske Suspension solutions for the weekend drag racers.

K-Tech Suspension

In conjunction with HTP Performance and developed through the 2018 season for Pro-Street and Grudge bike drag applications. The DDS Series shock is the next step in precision chassis control, easy tune ability, repeatable consistency and durability.
Like all other K-Tech products it has been designed and manufactured in the UK using the latest design software and highest grades of materials. For reduced weight and cost the DDS “Lite” is nearly identical to the ‘Pro” with  threaded locking spring pre-load collars and no potentiometer mounting provision.   Including compression and rebound damping adjustment and the unique ByPass Valve adjuster which controls both compression and rebound damping adjustment to assist with chassis control at low velocity shock movement to enhance tire feel and grip. The DDS system uses a smaller piston rod which keeps the system more stable over a wider temperature range due to its small displacement. Damping is controlled by a 32 mm piston which allows the use of larger shims for improved feel and greater durability.

Penske Shocks

The Penske rear shock offers an external fluid reservoir (either piggyback style or hose mounted) which helps ensure consistent performance over a wide range of fluid temperatures and activity. The nitrogen pressurized fluid resists foaming under heavy use with a unique piston design. Ride height and spring preload adjustable for custom set up. A high quality HyperCoil spring is included – matched to rider weight and anticipated use. Precision CNC machined billet aluminum construction, with anodized coatings for long life and corrosion resistance. Lightweight but super strong design has been proven in worldwide competition. Adjustable compression damping offers 16-20 clicks of adjustment with an easy to use knob. Rebound damping includes 36 clicks of adjustment for fine control of the rear wheel. Great for serious street riders, track day junkies, and professional racers, these shocks have seen use in all sorts of two wheeled competition including AMA Pro road racing and drag racing. Fully serviceable and rebuildable for years of high performance fun!
