Piston Kit - Brooks Suspension

Hello there.

im currently looking into upgrading the front forks on my SP2 and have been researching into the piston kits, Brooks Suspension offer a kit for £500 for the whole kit plus fitting and new springs and compression adjusters. I've called and enquired and they sound good, I just wanted to check and see if anybody has fit K-Tech internals before and if they rate them?

They also supply an Andreani kit but I can't say I've heard of them before? I've heard good things about K-Tech and Brooks seem to be a dealer, which looks to me they must be good.

Anyone have any advise? or experience with the K-Tech internals. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Ohlins Only. On God.

call Kyle Racing and bother LDH, thats hands down the best RC51 suspension on the market.

Good to know! I think springs would already make a big difference as I dont feel the springs I have in at the moment are suitable for my weight.

K-tech is a great choice along with Ohlins stuff.

I've ordered through brook suspension before and they are a stand up company with good customer service. I ordered K Tech compression adjusters for my CBR 900RR which were really nice quality. but unfortunately did not fit....think they removed them after that. I've heard good things about their products though. They are popular in the UK where they based out of.

Andreani group is a big Italian suspension specialist, and again is popular in Europe. http://www.andreanigroup.com/company/
They make good stuff.
