Fork Springs

Anyone interested in a pair of heavy duty fork springs let me know I think they are.75- I lost too much weight now they are to stiff-they work well for some one around 200lbs with very little dive-I have them set up for a 300F with 30mm sag- 300R will need longer spacers- cost me $110 sell $60 shipped anywhere in the USA

May I ask.... how much weight did you loose?? Asking cause if some person on this forum is the same weight as you..they also may find them to stiff.

The problem with bikes aimed at first time riders is that first time riders buy them..

I lost 20lb I was 210Lbs now 190lbs at 200lbs to say 230lbs they work well-or anyone that rides double alot- they still go through 4" of travel at my present weight just takes a big bump to make them move

Just want to congratulate you on the weight loss. 20 lbs is a significant amount. That takes alot of hard work and self mastery.

Thanks -but for me it's the norm-I go up and down all the time-back in the late 70's I lost 45lbs in six weeks and kept it off for 15 years-but this time it was the 300 being a small bike- that gave me the push

I've been waking up to 218-221 lbs every day this year. I don't feel like I'm too fat for this bike, but I'd love to be under 200 again. I think I was in my early 20s the last time I saw 1XX on the scale...Congrats man.

Being there's no interest in the springs and on second thought I think it would be a good idea to leave them in- as I remember the stock springs are very soft with alot of dive and a little to hard is a lot better than to soft

Yes good idea. The standard spring rate is .49kg/mm. Way too soft for any sort of fun! Even for a 130lb bean pole like myself.

Yep. I would have jumped at the opportunity, motorboy, if I was better prepared for disassembling the front end. It's terribly, comically soft, but I don't have the space / equipment to be doing it at this time.
