DRZ 400E rear shock spring

Recommended Posts

  Hey guys, My 2003 400E rear shock has a red spring, however I have seen a few with a yellow spring.  Is there any differance?

I have a spring on order from Eddie, I am just wondering if I am wasting my money if I already have a after market spring.

 

On a seperate note I was thinking of the lowerin kit placed on my bike.  I read that lowering the rear makes the spring and shock not perform as well.

Colour makes no difference

There were red and yellow IIRC from suzuki

 

E model's are 5.3kg/mm and S models are 5.5kg/mm irresepctive of colour

 

Aftermarket springs usually have the manufacturers name on it

If its plain, with no makrings then probably an OE spring

Yeah I've seen red, yellow & white OE springs... only way to know is if it has any markings or have a suspension shop check the spring rate.  Either way, try setting your rear race sag and then go by the static sag to determine if the spring is right for your weight.
