These fully adjustable fork cartridges from K-Tech Suspension offer full adjustability for your Indian Scout front end, all hidden under CNC machined fork caps. Spring preload, compression damping, and rebound damping adjustments allow you to tailor your ride for any conditions - boulevard cruising, back road tours, passenger and or luggage, or high speed interstate trips. The Independent Damping System separates the compression damping functions into one leg, with the rebound damping controlled in the other. Fork springs are not included, but available separately in 8.0N and 8.5N rates. $895 for a pair of Tracker cartridges - does not include fork springs. Save 10% through the end of September 2015!

Professional installation is recommended via a K-Tech Suspension authorized tuning center - or please contact your local dealer and ask them to contact Orient Express - 800.645.6521

If these work anything near as well as the K-Tech Bullit Rear Shocks am sure this is well worth the money to improve the Wimpy Front Suspension

Separated compression and rebound damping, one in each fork leg? No thanks. Imagine the left side is the only side resisting the impact when you hit a pot hole, and then the right side is the only side resisting when the springs push back. The stresses delivered to the axle and fender (the only parts actually connecting the 2 sides) every time the suspension moved at all could eventually lead to axle or axle clamp failure. Not a good result.

I could see this set up working on a racing machine, that has the front end rebuilt and parts replaced frequently, and that has a VERY robust fork brace to tie the sides together. On an everyday rider? No Thanks, not this guy.
