Would it be worth getting a new rear spring?

Recommended Posts

I weigh 150 and the fork springs on my XR should be just about perfect for my weight. The shock spring is supposedly a little stiff. Would it be worth it to buy a softer spring or would it not be enough difference to justify the money?

only buy one if you think its too stiff. if it feels right to you there is no need to change it

I'm 155 and went with a 8.5 spring and its noticeably better than stock, and the free sag is about right when the race sag is set.

I also revalved the shock myself (theres plenty of info on that here at TT) and that made a pretty big difference too.

I think the spring was worth it, but its still up to you. I got mine from the TT Store.
