cartridge emulators

Can the T140 (disc brake) forks use and/or benefit from Race Tech's gold valves? I've used them on other damping rod forks to good effect on an XS650 Yamaha and on my NT650 Honda. I called Race Tech this morning and they didn't know! If they will work on the later Triumph forks, can anyone tell me what size (diameter) fits?

There was some mention of how to make XS650 emulators fit an OIF Triumph,over at recently.
Go to "British/Modified Specials" and "Front fork upgrade for a OIF Triumph"

It can be done. I put them in my '71 Bonnie. Matt Wiley is the guy you need to talk to at RaceTech. I'm still working on the motor, so I can't tell you how they perform yet.

I run them on both my T140 race bikes. The best part is that they provide a level of adjustment.
