Pneumatic Front Fork
The front fork legs o f KZ550-C contain compressed
air to obtain adjustable suspension. This type of the
front fork
is
especially effective when the fork i s com-
pressed. I t also has the advantage that any air pressure
can be choosen (within the usable range) to suit various
riding conditions.
It accomplishes shock absorption through air com-
pression in the inner tube, spring action, and the resist-
ance to the flow o f the oil forced into the cylinder by
the movement.
W A R N I N G
D O not remove the springs and rely on
a
compressed air only.
Correct springs
must be used in this suspension system. Use without
springs can lead t o a condition causing accident and
injury.
