1987 xr600r suspension springs

Recommended Posts


Let me start by apologizing if this has already been discussed at length. I'm a newb. I'm restoring an 87 xr to look like an 85. My wife almost divorced me over the time I have in getting it to run right. I'm looking for fork and shock springs and haven't had whole lot of luck. I ordered some Eibachs with the spring rate I want but they showed at the house not looking right. Shock spring isn't even close and the fork springs are shorter then what came out, I'm assuming stock. Someone has also cut short pieces of PVC pipe and installed in the place of the spacer that fits at the top cap of the fork. I see a metal spacer in my manual. I was able to find seals and bushings for the fork and shock. Anyone have a spring resource? Thanks
