Flat Tracker Suspension Conversion & Setup
DTRA Flat Track Nationals
Since 2018 BG Motorsport have attended every round of the DTRA Flat Track Nationals and will be doing the same in 2020. We work with racers offering full technical support which ensures what we believe to be, the best set up for flat track bikes in the UK.
Testimonial from George Pickering @ Greenfield Dirt Track;
“Ben has been to every UK @dirtrtrackriders round for the last two seasons and in our opinion is now the best guy for setting up flat track bikes in the UK. If you’re unsure about the suspension in your bike, why not have a word with Ben? We’ve started working with Ben on our Team Greenfield Kawasaki’s this season and are impressed with the results and his dedication towards Flat Track Racing in the UK. Since we started running the new Ohlins TTX Flow on @tobyhales20 bike, he’s been on the podium at every round. The results speak for themselves!”
Flat Track Suspension Conversion
When you’re planning on sliding a motorbike sideways on a ‘cushion’ dirt track or on a ‘blue groove’, you need suspension that’s predictable and plush!
BG Motorsport can convert any motocross bike for flat track and tune your suspension setup for your weight and experience level.
Custom Suspension Conversion
Your BG Motorsport flat track conversion will be more than simply a suspension swap. We customise every suspension conversion using our specialist knowledge and tools.
- Optimised lengths based on chassis geometry and rider ergonomics.
- Spring packages based on both bike and rider from wheel frequencies and/or preference.
- Existing shocks and forks measured on our shock dyno, then re-worked based on chassis and rider preference.
As an official UK Öhlins centre and sole UK ZF Sachs Race Engineering Service Partner, BG Motorsport can help both amateur and professional riders on any type of flat tracker optimise their set up.
DTX Flat Tracker Conversion, Vintage, Thunderbike or Framer?
A DTX is a motocross motorcycle converted for flat track by changing the suspension and adding 19-inch wheels. A framer is a purpose-built flat track bike.
DTX is a popular way to get a flat track bike because it’s easier and can cost less than buying or building a framer. Popular donor bikes include the Honda CRF 450, KTM SXF 450 and Husqvarna FC 450. BG Motorsport can convert all of these and more. We can also set up your bike to suit your weight and riding style.
If you’re building a framer, or you’ve bought one and want to improve it, we can provide, fit and tune the ideal suspension for your needs and budget.
