    2019 Flow 48 XPLOR Fork Upgrade Kit

    Key Performance upgrades in 2019

    • Improved flow adjuster cap with a slick turning adjuster with more indented clicks. Better feel more ease of adjusting with gloves on.  This was achieved by redesigning the whole adjuster mech and changing to brass drive pins enabling the smooth action that lasts through the dirt and grime of Off road Moto.  Fine increments are set as this FA adjuster is super powerful basically revalving your fork on the fly. From super stiff hold up to divey plush, this adjuster can create that feeling from 1-22 clicks out on the adjuster ! Obviously somewhere in the middle will suit you.  Our top Pro’s prefer around 10 clicks out where as us weekend guys here in the shop prefer 14-16 for a softer in hand feel. Big hills coming up , easy click it up to 12.
    • O’Ring location on the adjuster pin on the midvalve assembly allows us to send out the adjuster mech complete for super easy install. No more worries of ‘which way does this go??’ Its all ready to go into the end of your damper rod in a complete ‘swap out’ replacement for the weak OEM comp unit.
    • Reworked clamp kit available separately for easy ‘no damage’ install

    New kits available now  for both 2017-18 and 2019 options

    • 4 Port compression pistons for finer tuning ability and less ‘blow out’ on big hits. We can achieve firmer compression setting whilst retaining a plush feel changing to this design. Fitted to both fork legs with shim stacks supplied for easy install.
    • Base adjuster, replaces the stock non adjustable unit,  fitted to the bottom of the rebound fork only. This adjuster fitted to the rebound leg only will offer greater noticable changes in compression setup. First off it runs a bleed from the system straight away making this plusher in hand. With a working range of around 4-20 clicks it allows for fine tuning of the compression on tree roots, rocks and small logs.  Take the sharp hits out while not adjusting the powerful flow adjuster. Ultimate Settings can be achieved by balancing out the 2 adjusters. This enables less stress on the tuner getting the setting perfect for you. Not happy with the valving and initial setting installed for you from the spec sheet or your local tuner? Re work it out on the trail. This kit is super adjustable, soft to hard.  Base Clicker setting supplied.
    • All new valving/shim settings are available to suit all year model Xplor bikes. Got a 2017 bike? Upgrade to 2019 tested specs and setup easily

    Krooztune Flow Adjuster Kit

    Our ‘Flow adjuster kit’ comes with a Mid-speed piston and new post assembly matched with a tuneable shim stack to suit the Xplor48 fork.  The Krooztune ‘FA’ fork cap is tuneable in fine increments allowing for a true 20+ clicks of workable and noticeable adjustment!  This adjuster can be set from a super firm setting (1 click out from full in) all the way through to a plush setting at around 18-20 clicks out.  Test riders quickly found a comfortable window fairly quickly that suited their ability and terrain.

    ‘8-10 clicks out , I can run at a fast pace on a  motocross track, 14-15 clicks is around my perfect setting for victorian off-road racing. I like it plush at 20 clicks out, for use in rock gardens, slow riding and technical obstacles.

    Krooztune Tested

    After initial tests with the standard Xplor48 fork we found it to be great at slow speed and gentle riding as it has a soft ‘divey’ feel in stock trim.  This is a decent setting for the average beginner rider.  When we upped the pace a little and took the fork through its paces its limitations and harshness were quickly found.  Tuning the stock fork and upgrading springs if needed are a good first step to get this fork rideable and raceable.  However, the biggest issue with the OEM setup was the lack of support, bottoming control and severe lack of compression adjustment.  This limits the rider to the valving setup installed and really no more.  We simply couldn’t get any real noticeable adjustment softer or harder with the fork once assembled.

    Our test riders and customers wanted a fork that would give them a range of adjustment that would work well across offroad and motocross like duties.   Our target was a solution that improved the WP Xplor 48 system to retain plushness and build in a far wider range of soft & hard adjustability at an unprecedented level.   Having real time adjustability to ride trails one day and hit the motocross park the next was our ultimate goal.

     

    Installing the new ‘FA’ Mid piston balances out the damping duties across both fork legs and allows for a more easily tuneable fork.  After testing we found amazing control, plushness and any bottoming issues were gone.  The major difference test riders noted was the downhill support when they had found their preferred clicker setting, allowing for faster descent, harder braking and more aggressive hits on drop offs and jumps without fearing the fork emptying out. Then quickly adjusting it to a soft setting and trail riding through technical terrain.

    Dial in the clicker for your own personal range, most riders fine tuning it to a 3-4 click window that suits their speed and terrain.

    Adjusting the front suspension is extremely easy with our ‘FA’ adjuster fork cap.  Wind the ‘FA clicker’ full in until it stops gently clockwise.  Count out the clicks anti-clockwise to the required setting, for example, 15 clicks out.  Adjust until it’s spot on for your rider, speed and terrain.
