What is '06 YZF shock spring Rate?

What is the STOCK rear shock spring rate on a '06 YZF 450?

5.1kg or 5.3kg

Thanks, MV

My service manual says 5.5

Thanks, '06 correct?

is 5.5kg for US spec or Euro?


Yes that is for 06. And my bike is U.S.A.


5.5 is a good rate for the 185-210 range...finally a bike that is suspended for us older kids! Sorry youngsters :applause:

Ti springs (the '06 has one, remember) behave a little differently than steel. The 5.5 kg/mm rate on the '06 might pretty much equate to the 5.3 of the '03. I doubt that Yamaha has changed their target rider weight very much.
