If you are servicing your forks, I would take them off the bike so you can really clean them out. They get pretty gucky, especially the left damper rod side. Once you have them off and apart, you should polish the tubes with fine 1000-1200 grit sandpaper to remove any imperfections that will eventually damage your fork seals. Oh, and do them one at a time. Some of the parts look similar, but aren't. When you refill them, put some oil in, pump the forks and the cartridge on the left, then fill them to the recommended distance from the top of the tube, with the tube collapsed and the springs out. You will probably want to replace your bushings while you are there, too. At $16 for all 4, it's silly not to.
AZgl1500 posted a link to a discussion about the differences and what's available.. Look here.. http://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/view_topic.php?id=78018&forum_id=1&jump_to=824315#p824315
(moderator, youy can make that link shorter if you'd like.. I just don't know how..,)
One of the real differences between RaceTech and Traxxion, besides theprice, is thatyou can do a RaceTech upgrade yourself, as long as you have some reasonable skills and tools. Traxxion feels that an authourized installer who has been to Georgia for training should do the forks, since there is some machining required. Traxxion totally guts the forks and replaces their innards with high quality cartridges and springs. You end up with a pretty good sized pile of parts when you ae done.
So, if you want to do the work yourself, or if finances are an issue, RaceTech will give you a lot of improvement for a reasonable investment. If you have a Traxxion installerwithin striking distance, or are willing to ship your forks toGeorgia, and the difference in price doesn't scare you, Traxxion will give you amazing improvement. I don't see an installerlistedin Fla on the Traxxion website, but they don't always have them listed. We're in NH, and they haven't found a way tolist us on their website yet. So if you give them a call, maybe there is somebody close.
No matter which way you choose to go, at 30K miles, your rearshock is toast. Actually, it was a pretty poor performer when you drove it home..
And we have foundthat a fork brace, ether a Kury or a Traxxionadds a lot of crispness in low speed maneuvers. Lastly, while you have the forks off, a set of AllBalls roller bearings will reduce the decel wobble between 40 and 25 mph.With the forks off, you're 1/2 wat there..
If that doesn't answer your questions, check out Traxxion's website, and look at the video Max has posted there. he's opinionated, but he's right..
Or, if you still have ??s, post here, PM me, call me if you'd like (my phone # is on my website, see link in sig line
