The JB/KYB φ38 Special Front Fork was developed for the air-cooled ’70s to ’80’s superbikes and other literbikes. Its high rigidity obtained though a high-strength ultra-thin inner tube and the excellent spring and damping characteristics that are based on BITO R&D’s extensive proprietary knowledge make it an ideal bike suspension for street use. The separately available extension kit allows making height adjustments that are essential for race users or custom bikes.
Two different base lengths and the separately available JB-POWER extension kits allow making height adjustments that are essential for race users or custom bikes.
JB/KYB 41Ø Front Fork
The JB/KYB φ41 Special Front Fork has a 12-step adjustment for rebound and compression damping and a preload adjuster. The BITO R&D special tuned cartridge-type damper unit realizes a supple and elastic bike suspension setting. A separately available extension kit allows chassis height adjustments. It can be installed on the GPZ900R (A7 – A11) without modification.

The separately available JB-POWER extension kits allow chassis height adjustments to fit your motorcycle.
JB/ KYB Rear Shocks
Like the front forks, rear shock absorbers can be considered as important frame components that are closely related to frame rigidity and have a great influence on safety, handling, and riding comfort by handling the effects of the unsprung load and running speed of wheels and tires.
We were to create the best product possible by virtue of our conviction to make “Really good products that our customers truly desire” and outstanding technical prowess as a machine constructor and tuner.
