Race Tech gold valves worth it?

Hey,

I have a 2003 919 with non adjustable forks, and I'm wondering if it's worth it to put in race tech gold valves RT - Digital Product Search in addition to respringing the front forks? Advice or experience with this appreciated. I just took possession of an ohlins shock.

I've heard good things about them. Or, you could contact LDH and get Ohlins valves and springs for your forks, I did this and the difference was amazing.

However, with the 03 being non adjust, you would get a much larger return on your investment if you swap out the forks for some f4/i and then upgrade them.

I'd go with the Ohlins over RaceTech ANYDAY.

Get the best of both and have F4i forks re-built

2.5 hours is a no brainer. I'd still go with F4 forks if you have the money and patience.
