    Progressive springs or stock?

    Can someone tell me if these are stock or progressive? Previous owner thinks they're progressive but told me I should compare with stock to be sure.

    Racetech springs

    I have a question for the people that have used Racetech springs before. From what Ive read before, a lot of people have suggested that if you go off of Racetechs recommendations, then the spring rate will be too harsh, and that you need to order 1 step down. I wonder if the people that...

    Progressive Fork Springs -SOLD-

    SOLD Up for consideration I have a set of Progressive Fork Springs. Reason for sale: I weigh maybe 160 lbs. on a real heavy day and never have a passenger and I just couldn't find a happy medium with the springs (stiffness) no matter how much I shortened the PVC spacers that came with the...

    Progressive Fork Springs

    My 1986 front forks no longer hold air and are leaking pretty bad. So I need to replace the seals and I figured I would switch to progressive springs while I’m at it, but I’m not sure exactly what I should get. I have some picked out, but to be honest I don’t really know what I’m looking at. I...

    Spacers with Progressive springs.

    Progressive Springs installed / Forks Rebuilt

    I had a Hungarian mechanic rebuild my forks. I gave him Progressive springs and new OEM seals to install. He did all the work for the equivalent of $35. I had to argue with him to take that since he actually asked for less. I just got the forks installed back into the bike, and WOW they are...

    How to tell if I have progressive springs

    Besides opening up the forks, is there a way to tell if the front springs are aftermarket? Like are the 1" lowering springs the most popular and is there a ground clearance measurement I can check? I've only had my vmax for 1000miles and the front end seems fairly stiff. I'm 240lbs and have...
