Premium Ride Single Cartridge Fork Kit

Part Number 45400058




This Single Sided Cartridge Fork provides improved handling performance by keeping the tire in contact with the road surface.

  • Tuned to work in concert with the Premium Emulsion Rear Shocks, the fork damping is controlled by specifically calibrated piston and valve stack
  • Unlike typical orifice damping, the piston/valve system helps the cartridge fork achieve a linear damping force curve for consistent feel throughout the compression and extension of the front suspension
  • The cartridge allows the forks to react quickly to rough roads, inspiring rider confidence in sweeping corners
  • The compression piston provides excellent low speed damping for a better rider feel, and the rebound spring provides a smoother feel during topping
  • The cartridge fork resists bottoming and dive, and the triple rate spring and oil lock allows the forks to absorb bumps even under hard braking - giving the rider more control while resisting wheel hop
  • A perfect addition during the installation of chrome or gloss black lower fork sliders
  • Kit includes fork pipes, cartridges, fork bolts, main springs and oil seals

why do i need to change out my fork tube from stock? Obviously there is a difference in tubes, but can you tell me what the difference is?
Asked by: kevin211

How can you get it apart?

The "damper cartridge" part has threads. These threads spin with minor pressure form the screw in the bottom of the fork leg. The instructions indicate blue loctite brand thread lock. Is this a one time install? How would you take it apart to change a scratched tube?
Asked by: KurtDavidson
Hi Kurt Davidson, The Loctite 565 Thread Sealant is just a sealant. It is a low pressure sealant and will not permanent the part you are attempting to install. If the Loctite included Threadlocker the installation would become permanent and an one-time use component. Hope this helps!

Does this kit lower the Dyna Fat Bob

I want to lower the bike 1" to 2"
Asked by: Donc781
Hi Donc781, No, this Premium Ride Single Cartridge Fork Kit will not help lower a motorcycle. Thank you for your question.

Higher rate springs?

Are there any plans for higher rate springs to be made available for this kit? Heavier riders would greatly benefit from higher rate springs rather then those for the "average" 185lb rider, especially since there is no preload adjustment like on the rears. Thanks.

Do I order one or two of the front suspension kits?

Asked by: ScottZ
Hey ScottZ, You only need to purchase one kit for your '12 FXDC.
