12 posts in this topic

:cry:

I just put the .48 kg on my ride. $100 bucks at Race Tech. :cry: They do have them at the Thumpertalk store a little cheaper...... :cry:

Great mod. since I'm tipping the scales at 265 lbs. :cry:

Thats not stock, well above. Stock is .39kg, if my memory is correct.

I think they increased the spring rate one year, but I don't remember which year it was... I have a 2000, and I THINK the stockers were .42, but I'm not actually sure...

I think Kevin knows the answer to all these questions; he posted a list once of all the little changes they made each year, from about '95 to present... That list should be made into a sticky...

I was recommended to get the .52kg springs for my 400, to “balance the bike”. I guess that .52 springs will match the rear shock? I weigh 160, does that sound like the right spring for me? Any help would be great!

I was told 49-52KG, and I weigh 260, so someone has been told wrong.......... I got my info from the chart at 4strokes.com

I also weigh around 160, and I've found that around 8.5 - 9.0 kg/mm for the shock and 0.41 - 0.43 kg/mm for the fork seem to work well. Stock rates are shown above. Spring rate suggestions can be found here and here. Make sure you set your sag. I tend to prefer something in the range of 90 - 95 mm race sag on my '99 XR4.

I'm also interested if anybody has a set of fork springs collecting dust. Would like to find a set of the .41's from a '00 and newer.
