CN III STUFF P82 GILLES TOOLING FACTOR-X-LEVER Price: $133.66-$161 Phone: 530.342.9254 Website: The new Factor-X-Lever from Gilles Tooling fits most 1996 and later Harley Davidson models and they are one of the few mods allowed in the XR1200 series. A thumb wheel allows for up to 35 adjustment positions and the levers come in a choice of anodized gold, silver or black, or in a polished version, with optional Gilles Tooling logo engraving. RACE TECH FORK GOLD VALVE KITS FOR SHOWA BPF Price: $299.99 Phone: 951.279.6655 Website: Race Tech's newest Fork Gold Valve Kits are for the Showa BPF forks found on the 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R, HarleyDavidson XR1200, and Suzuki GSX-R600. The stock BPF design has an oversized, yet very restrictive singular piston, which means it flows more than 10 times the fluid of a standard cartridge. Race Tech says that this creates harshness and contributes to fork chatter during braking, but Race Tech also says its new Gold Valve Kit improves the flow characteristics of the BPF dramatically, and can increase both travel and front-end trail. 82-83 Stuff.indd 82 7/15/11 3:45 PM
