If you’re looking to upgrade the forks on your 2014-2016 FZ-09, 2015+ FJ-09, or 2016+ XSR900, look no further. We took our popular 20 mm Fork Piston Kit and pre-built a stock cartridge so that you don’t need to worry about tearing into your own, finding a trusted local shop to do your dirty work, or enduring excessive downtime . If you can follow the factory service manual to remove the factory cartridge, this is a job you can handle! Kit includes:
- Pre-valved stock cartridge – drop-in ready
- Fork oil
- Cartridge bolt crush washer
- Stoltec Moto fork leg decals
- (Optional) Drop-in fork springs
- (Optional) SKF ‘Green’ Fork Seals – reduced stiction w/ increased service life
If you don’t have the necessary tools to complete the job, we have some optional tool rentals which will take care of all the non-standard tools:
Our custom linear rate fork springs are also available separately. As always, please contact us for spring rate recommendations.
NOTE: You will be charged a $200 core exchange fee unless you choose to send your stock cartridge to us first. Core charge refund is subject to our TERMS AND CONDITIONS. Please read them before purchasing…

Heard good things about Stoltec Moto and opted to purchase this drop-in kit over the DIY valving kit to minimize my bike’s downtime. I had been debating what, if any, suspension upgrade to get and I am very happy with this product. I went with stiffer springs at the same time and have a noticeably more planted ride with much less fork dive on breaking.
I decided on this kit over more expensive options because I primarily ride on the street (no track) and didn’t want to break the bank. Commuting is more comfortable, cornering is more confident, and I didn’t have to spend thousands to get there.
Shipping was quick, I got my core charge refunded quickly as well, and Stoltec Moto was very helpful with my emails on spring rate and turn around time on ordering.

Thanks again. Changing out the cartridge and springs was easy. Renting the tools worked well. It’s been too cold to test the new front end,but I’m ready for the warm weather. You guys are great.

What a great kit, service and price! This kit reduces down time and it ships fast. I opted for the stiffer springs and Nick was super helpful along the way. I also opted for the loaner tools option and I think that tells you all you need to know about how dedicated Stoltec is. Kit cannot be beaten imho.
