Stock replacement performance upgrade 49 mm forks

Internationally well known for their sportbike and streetbike suspensions, Dutch specialist Hyperpro has had Harley-Davidson (and more recently Indian Motorcycle) model-specific suspension applications in its line-up ever since the company began in business in 1993.
Their range includes stock replacement and performance upgrade rear shock absorbers and rising rate/progressively wound shock absorber springs, front suspension springs, full front end suspension kits and one of the best known and most widely used steering damper programs in the market.

Specifically developed for Harleys and custom bike applications, their H49 right-side up front fork features “the latest suspension technology” and sets a “new level in suspension adjustment on conventional front fork damping,” says Jan Belder, International Sales & Marketing VP.
The fork has been developed as a direct replacement for Harley-Davidson 49 mm applications and fits original H-D wheels and axles.
Features include rebound adjustment, high and low speed compression adjustment, a rising rate spring with adjustable pre-load, adjustable rebound and high and low speed compression adjustment. 

They are available in full black and have DLC coated (Diamond-like carbon) inner stanchions. DLC is a class of amorphous carbon material that displays some of the typical properties of diamond. DLC is usually applied as coating to other materials that could benefit from some of those properties – friction resistance in high performance suspensions is an ideal environment for the benefits it brings.
Hyperpro has 25 employees, a 10,000 sq ft (1,000 sq m) facility at Werkendam in southern Holland, and is exporting to more than 40 countries around the world.
