HD fork springs for DRZ250's

Recommended Posts

I've checked with Racetech and the others and nobody seems to make heavy duty fork springs for a DRZ 250. I weigh 240lbs and you would think I would need heaver fork springs. Anybody out there know why they don't? I've emailed racetech on this matter and I'm waiting for a response.

Nope. DRZ250 model does not appear. I'm just going to have to call and find out.

Thanks anyway though!

Aftermarket for this bike is terrible and that is a shame. This could be the next better "XR" type bike, but nobody will suppoort it. What I mean by 'XR"

is a more modernized bike than the XR, but low maintenance and high reliability.

I believe on the bottom where the two inside cases bolt together. It didn't leak at all till I installed the Yoshi exhaust.

Cannonracecraft doesn't have a listing either. They have a listing for the DRZ400 like the other vendors. I may just have to call them and ask them why. I appreciate everybody giving me suggestions! Thank you all!

Hey weldabike, did you get this engine sealer at a motorcycle shop and what's it named?

Well, racetech emailed back and said, you're right, we don't make fork springs for the DRZ250. They said I need to check with Suzuki and see if they make stiffer springs. The search continues on.

I have a full yoshi system (slip-on and headpipe.) It's a very slow leak, about one teaspoon a week sitting in the garage. It's slowed down alot since I drained the synthetic and put Suzuki four-stroke oil in it.

Check with a motorcycle suspension shop. I was going to have my front fork springs replaced with stiffer springs at a shop in Palo Alto, California called Aftershocks. I did not do it--we ended up making some set up changes that helped my problem--but they said they could do it. I believe they were going to use a spring set that normally is used in another make/model bike--but they also fit the DRZ. Call them.
