cheap springs for a fat guy on an "S"?
« on: June 12, 2011, 11:56:46 AM »
Hey, Just picked up a nice, clean '01 S model. I'm 6'5" and 300 pounds so the factory springs are WAY soft! Any options for cheap springs? Any cross overs from motocross bikes or similar? Thanks for your help!!

Ebay
Look for Honda CRFR/CRFX used springs they fit the showa shock on the 400e and 400 see if the S has the same shock. 09 on CRFR will not work (Kayaba shock). Stock is 5.5 a 5.8 is what i was using at 250lb. I think the stock S is 5.4 400e 5.3. Fronts are not the same but i found an ebay site selling new Factory Connection fronts for $70 instead of the list of $120. stock E is .43 but .48 called for if you weigh around 220 -240.
