The Honda ST1300 has become a staple of the Sport Touring and Iron Butt communities since its introduction in 2002. These bikes have made their presence known simply by the twist of the throttle. They have become the workhorse for many police departments as well. Honda has built a well constructed machine in both performance and looks; however it seems they’ve turned their cheek (or pocket book) away from the suspension.
The stock suspension on the ST1300 is incredibly under-sprung and softly damped causing poor braking, limited bottoming resistance and a harshness over high-speed bumps. In addition, the front end also has a tendency to dive at low speeds, or bottom when hitting even the smallest of bumps.
With both the front and rear mods, you will experiencean increased level of comfort, improved handling, and a performance that far exceeds the stock suspension - guaranteed.
- Choose from the options below:
Selecting a ►Hi-Performance Springs with a rate that is correct for the rider, passenger, and/or luggage is the first step toward improving the ST1300 suspension.
Proper front and rear spring rates will increase the useable travel by increasing ride height in the stroke, and provide improved braking, handling or control with an increased bottoming resistance.
- Fork Springs - (FRSP S3827 Series) - Shock Spring - (SESP 60225 Series) (Requires Spring Collar SPSC P575516)
Revalving the compression and rebound valves with ►Gold Valve Kits for the forks and shock is the next step. Gold Valves achieve a plush feel while improving bottoming resistance, handling and control.
