07 KTM forks & nitrogen?

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure how to ask this. So I will start with this.

Nitrogen, what is it's purpose? What is it's role for the forks? :smirk:

The WP CC forks have a nitrogen filled bladder rather than a ICS spring to pressurize the cartridge.

If you are asking why is it pressurized, It's to stop cavitation.

also normal air (rather than nitrogen) works fine in the WP forks.

the purpose of nitrogen instead of air is moisture. Nitrogen is "dry" so the psi stays consistent when it gets hot.
