Hmm. I think mine is blue too. Though checking would require going downstairs, which I'm not going to do in my slightly innebriated state just now.... :naughty:

Someone had the exact numbers on these back on the old mvagustaf4.com site...

The blue is stiffer than the yellow, and this almost certainly is a good thing, unless you are very light. But then, if you are, the fork settings will be too stiff then.

I believe the earlier MVs had much the same problem as the 996/998. Too much spring in front (or just right if you're like me), and not enough in the rear. And I believe the blue spring was done to address this in the '02 and later bikes?

No exact info though, sorry.

i thought that the blue came with the mono's and the yellows the 1+1's making the yellow stiffer? all the SPR's i've seen are blue springed/sprung/sproinged.
