As good as anything

No complaints from me. Just don't expect a new spring to give you better suspension. However, if you are looking for a stiffer or softer spring you will be amazed. I had to go with a softer spring because the previous owner had a super stiff spring for flat track racing. I am killing the woops after the change!

Hauls my butt

I ordered a Factory Connection shock spring for my '08 WR450 and it installed and fit perfectly. After setting the sag and checking the static sag, I went for a 40 mile ride. This was the first time since I've had the bike that it actually felt balanced. I was surprised at the difference the correct spring made for an old fat guy.

Overall
Worth the investment

Took the bike out on the track and trail a couple times and I am very impressed in both areas . I should have done this a long time ago.

Back in the Air

I have put on a few pounds over the years allowing for full compression of the stock spring on my CRF450R. This new spring makes a huge difference, I'm back in the air and my suspension loves it.

Definitely a MUST!!!

Getting the correct suspension for your bike is a MUST!!! I am about 210lbs and I was riding with a stock spring weighted for 135lbs and it made such a difference; It provided a more smooth ride and more comfortable ride. This product is definitely worth the money! The best part is, finding the right rated spring is made really easy with the help of Motosports's customer service!

Good rear spring

Spring fits perfectly in the rear shock and now Im not bottoming out anymore! The yellow spring didnt go with my 03 yz250f color scheme so I powder coated it white.

To give a more accurate recommendation I would need a little more information. Riding Type (MX, SX, Desert, Woods, Trail/Enduro, Etc.), Skill Level/Racing Class (Beginner/D, Novice/C, Intermediate/B, Expert/Pro/A), Gas Tank Size (stock or oversized) as well as Age, Height and Weight all factor into proper suspension set up. Assuming you are riding Motocross, Novice - Intermediate Level, Stock Fuel Tank, Under 30 years old, 6', 200lbs. The best recommendation I would be able to give would be a 5.8Kg Rear Spring (Stock = 5.5Kg). You may also want to go to a stiffer .49Kg/mm Fork Spring (Stock = .47Kg/mm).

Typically you'd want to give Factory Connection a call so a Suspension specialist can ask you several questions regarding your particular situation. To give you a baseline answer, starting somewhere with a 6.3 spring rate is what you are probably looking at. I suggest referring to Factory Connection so they can zero in on specifics for you.

KTM 400 Supermoto Fork and Shock Springs?
Hi There, I am converting my 2006 KTM 400EXC to a supermoto and am wondering what springs I should go with for the Shock and Forks? I'm 5-10" 200Lbs. I was hoping to go with something a little harder as my girlfriend sometimes rides on the back. She is about 100 Lbs. Thanks,

I would recommend giving Factory Connection a call as they would likely be able to provide you with more accurate set up information for your supermoto than I would. Here is a link to Factory Connections contact page: http://www.factoryconnection.com/contact-us/

WHAT SIZE SHOULD I GET?
I am 6'4" 250 lbs. I ride motocross and im a very agressive rider. what shock spring should i get?
MotoSport Staff Expert
14 days ago Location: Portland, OR, USA
Your stock rear spring rate would be 5.2Kg/mm, assuming you have the stock gas tank on your bike the recommended spring rate for your size would be a 6.3Kg/mm spring. You will likely also want to switch to a stiffer fork spring as well. Your stock front fork spring rate would be 0.46Kg/mm spring, the recommended spring rate for your size would be 0.52Kg/mm spring.

What size?
Hello I am an enduro/track rider I am 16 years old and weigh 195lbs my 1998 CR250 has recently been botteming out with the rear shock, so I plan to do a rebuild on the whole rear shock and replace the spring that is in it, and I have no idea which sized spring to get. Please help me, Thanks

Recommended is a 5.4 kg spring, stock is a 4.9 kg spring. This should help the bottoming issue. You should also check the oil and gas pressure in the shock, if either has leaked out or broken down over time the shock will not operate properly. Make sure to check swing arm, linkage and shock bearings to make sure they're working properly.

Based on your weight and riding style, the stock spring rate should be fine, the 2014 has a stiffer mid-stroke. Installing Race-Tech gold valves can help that. Changing the pressure in the forks may help, recommended is 35 psi in the forks, make sure you check each time you ride. Setting the sag and race sag will also help the attitude of the bike. Try these and see if that helps. Changing the oil volume may be another factor to look at, recommended is 235 cc.

The stock spring rate for the rear shock on your 2014 Kawasaki KX450 would be 5.4 Kg. Based on the information given the best spring rate recommendation would actually be a softer 4.9 Kg spring. Since the stock spring isn't going to be too soft for you, I would say you may be best off sticking with the stock spring and doing some tuning to until it feels good for you.

How do you know what size spring for rider?
Top 1000 Contributor
29 days ago Location: Hartsville, SC 29550, USA
Based on rider weight, type of riding( motocross, woods riding, desert riding), classification of rider( beginner, intermediate, expert) will determine the spring rates. Based on info provided, the fork springs should be .31 kg, stock is .29 kg. And the shock spring should be 5.37 kg. stock is 5.0 kg.

What spring rate should I go with?
I have an 05 crf250r with a stock gas tank. I'm 6ft, 210lb, about a b-class rider, and I mostly ride singletrack/enduro trails.

The stock spring rate for your 2005 Honda CRF250R would be a 5.2 Kg spring. With the information provided my best recommendation would be a 5.8 Kg Spring. You may also want to look into going with stiffer fork springs as well, the recommended fork spring rate for you would be 0.48 kg/mm springs (0.45 kg/mm would be stock).
Top 1000 Contributor
23 days ago Location: Hartsville, SC 29550, USA
Based on the information given, using a .482 kg spring rate is recommended, the stock spring rate is .45 kg. Using 370 cc of fresh 5 wt oil is also recommended when installing the new springs. Once installed setting the bike sag and race sag will help the suspension perform better. I hope this helps.

What is the max weight for these springs?
MotoSport Staff Expert
28 days ago Location: Portland, OR, USA
That would honestly depend on the specific spring rate of the spring. The highest spring rate for your Yamaha YZ250F would be a 6.3 KG spring. This would be the stiffest spring available for your bike. As far as the maximum weight that that spring could handle, I honestly don't have that specific of information available to me on these springs.
