Another SXF 250 Shock Spring Question!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am a heavy chap, 105KG without kit and am struggling with conflicting information and springs available.

SXF 250 2017

Q-Springs chart says I need a 4.8N, which I have on the bike but cant get the sag (118mm rider sag at 9mm preload)

Racetech calculator says a need a 5.4N 

Manual says I need a 4.8 - 5.0N

So I purchased a 5.4N from K-Tech (UK) but for some reason they supply a 260mm long spring, compared to the standard length of 247mm. (I have tried to get an answer on this but no luck)

I looked on the G-Force (UK) website and they also have 260mm long springs!?

I have been trying to understand why the springs they sell are 13mm longer than the WP spring and if this would be an issue for the handling of the bike.

Would anyone know??

It makes no difference the length , don't worry, I think the 54 will be too stiff

you can't argue with stupid or Yamaha owners
