Front Suspension Recommendations
« on: September 24, 2020, 04:20:35 PM »
Greetings:

I have a 2020 750GS, and I find that even with modest braking, the front end dives considerably. 

1.  Does anyone have any experience with the Touratech upgraded suspension with progressive front and rear springs. (Link below). 

2. If so, I have ESA; can I still use the Touratech rear spring with the ESA?

3.  If not the Touratech product, any suggestions for other products?

Thanks in advance.

I have the Touratech progressive springs on my 2019 F750 with ESA. I found it was a good upgrade especially for the front. The front no longer dives  as much when braking. It also stiffens both front and rear on larger bumps at full compression.

Update:  Instead of the progressive springs, I had Race Tech springs installed with the gold valve treatment.  Big improvement.

The front fork upgrade with the Race Tech Gold Valve Emulator and Spring ... how much did it help with brake dive? Was it a really big difference?

Did you upgrade the rear shock with the Gold Valve and Spring upgrade from Race Tech also?

Howdy Greg T,
Do you mind providing a link to the specific kit you got for your 750?
I only see kits for the older model gs 700s and 800s.
Also, how much was the kit and did you install it yourself?
Thank you
