Performance Suspension Kit

Part Number 54530-10




Fully-adjustable light-weight suspension system features Showa's new Big Piston Front fork (BPF) design, which eliminates many of the internal components used in a cartridge-type fork, simplifying construction and resulting in lighter overall fork weight.

  • Large diameter of BPF's internal piston allows a reduction in damping pressure, for better feedback and smoother action
  • BPF rebound and compression damping force settings are easily fine tuned via two adjuster screws located on top of the fork bolts
  • Spring pre-load is adjusted via a M5 hex screw on the axle holders, and compression damping can be adjusted via a knob on top of the piggy back reservoir
  • Rebound is adjusted with a thumb wheel on the lower clevis, and rear spring pre-load is also adjustable on the shock for optimum 1G sag
  • Rear Showa shocks feature 36mm pistons with a piggy back nitrogen charged reservoirs
  • Kit includes one set of Big Piston Front Forks and one set of rear shocks

Fits '08-'13 XR1200™ models. Stock on International '10-'13 XR1200X™ models.

Asked by: Vins


Is there a selection of fork and shock springs that can be ordered with this system? I am 270lbs, 6'4"...and would like heavier than stock springs if possible.
