Spring sources

Im browsing around for some stiffer springs and wonder where people are getting their front and rear springs. I am about 190lbs with gear but i usually ride with a back pack so +5lbs maybe and just trying to get the front tuned in and it seems like there is just too much travel/sag. Its sitting at 25mm range when i sit on the bike. (havent measured the upper full range). Thanks! 2008 910s

Thumbs up rears?

Öhlins series # 1091 are a direct replacement for rear shock springs

you can use series #1093 but you must change the spring cap for a taller one

First measure static and rider sag properly, then go form there, you'll probably need something around the 1.1kg. But be carefull, the forks you have are nor a common dia. and they are a taper spring, so make sure you do your research before just buying.
If you go through this section, you'll find threads started by Glenn - ( http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/member.php?u=9614 ) - about hyperpro spring replacements.

Wink ?

front spring rate depends on the front axle load....

fork brand doesn't count ..... it's Hook's Law, look it up

RaceTech's spring calculator works, use it

I like spring rates and damping way different than most people.....

light springs with lots of preload and very little damping

my '08 Brutale has 1.0 Kg/mm springs and it's bad on bumps..

my Aprilia RSVR has 0.85 Kg/mm springs and its a delight to ride(0.85 is the lightest

spring RaceTech has for the Showas) I'll never sell that bike.... it's so confidence

inspiring that it was going to kill me

on the rear, me giving you the spring rate.....is meaningless, because you're working

with the square of the linkage ratio
