I agree with BWB63....

I run a 10.5 in the rear and I'm only 200lbs. But I run tons of gear (my tool packs something like 18lbs!) and ride like a madman... jumping off anything I can. Works well, is firm enough on big stuff and soft and supple on small bumps.

Also...
Precision Concepts in El Cajon, CA did my fronts... they mixed the two front springs up, I think a .46 in one side and something in the other. They mimicked Johnny Campbell's forks for me with same valving, spring rate, oil viscosity...etc. Works awesome, just wish I had the specs for ya.

130mm
85mm


That would be an ID of 3.34 inches... and a length of 5.12 inches...

I thougth it would be closer to 2.5inch ID and 10 inches in length but I dont know for sure.

Where is that info from?

Dam...why would they taper the stupid thing? That small of a taper isnt gonna give a progressive feel to the rider!

Are the aftermarket springs tapered like that?
