i've got a never used stock spring that came off my 05yz450(was brand new when bought) and was going to offer it for sale,well i looked in the book to see what spring rate to advertise and it said 5.1 was stock(which seemed kinda low to me) and it had a white mark on the spring to ID it. well mine has a pink mark which according to them is 5.5 :ride: so is the book wrong? or did the wrong spring get installed at the factory(like maybe they ran out of the stock ones?) i know the yamaha manuals have some issues :applause: well whatever the deal, does anyone need a never used pink marked spring? (5.5kg i guess)

NC how many beers tonight bud......5.1 is stock...that is what it should be :p

5.5 if it is - will suit your better - for your weight

Does she feel stiff or what....?

pink white or white to pink ...could be due to cleaning solution.....of your choice

well,for one thing i don't clean my bike (anyone who knows me can attest to that!) for another, the spring came off the bike before it saw a real ride, and another, the 6.0 that i replaced it with better suits my weight(actually its a little soft,but its the biggest RCS makes and soft is good for woods) and one more,its definately PINK ! which according to the book is definately 5.5 :applause: beer had absolutely nothing to do with it
