Traxxion Axxion Fork valve and fork upgrade
« on: November 19, 2017, 11:24:44 pm »
Interested from hearing from folks who have had their forks rebuilt by Traxxion - can’t afford the AK20s.

Now there are options,, for many budgets. Only for reference, but i have had Bike's done by GMD computrac, Ohlins, and used many Racetech set up's.
And i have to say Bang for the buck Traxxion take the win here.

So here is a break down, ill go most expensive to, the lowest,,
 Note here, Penske rear shocks come in many forms the general, is called a double clicker, for around $1000
And that price can go up, or down,
Up would be a triple clicker,,
and down would be a a budget version of the double clicker


First,, as we all have read is the Traxxion AK20 and Penske setup
Come's is around $2000 plus labor and seals.
Can be done in by a average wrench, but not safe for the safe at heart.

Second,, is the Traxxion Action valves, and Penske shock
Price is around $650, Plus rear shock, , So around $1500 to $1700ish depending on rear shock

Third,, is Racetech valves and springs, can be done, for around $450ish for the front, as well as the rear shock can be done also.
Need for special tools, increases, to make this happen.

Forth, is ZX14 forks, and leave the rear alone,
Find your self a set of ZX14 fork add a set of springs, and you have way more Oemish adjustablity,,,   

Just an FYI, Im more than willing to help out here,, if you have have any question's, send me a PM, and we can get on the phone,,,
If you are local,, i have all tools needed to do any of theses set-ups

Hope this is helpful  :motonoises:

i believe that all of the above requires re-spring-ing (unless you weigh 165lbs)-- most  of those options include new springs except the budget ones

The Traxxion Ak20's as well as there Action Valves include springs,, and i mentioned with the ZX14 fork springs where needed!

Ohlins, And GMD also all include springs!

Totally agree. I sent this message to Dan, and two days later I have every decal they ever produced.  :great:

I’m installing running lights on my lowers, and unfortunately the mounting bracket is going to cover up my beloved Traxxion AK-20 stickers.  I get a lot of comments about that, and would hate to lose them.  Is it possible to snag two new stickers, since I will have room lower on the forks?
