YZ426 SM spring rates

2 posts in this topic

I have a friend who SM'd his YZ426, he was asking me about stiffer fork springs. What spring rates are you guy's using on your SM's? Race Tech does not seem to have a stiff enough spring for his bike. They show .48 as the stiffest, I was thinking he needs stiffer, he weighs about 180 lbs.

I don't know a whole lot about super moto but wouldn't you want softer fork springs for a lower front end for less wheelying out of corners. And .48 is incredibly stiff beyond my imagination, my bike has .42 and is WAY too stiff for me. I really don't think he needs .48 fork springs especially for super moto.
