Ract Tech Fork Springs Info / Question Xr400r 2003

Recommended Posts

Looking for information the fork springs. the 2003 has fork springs measuring 526 mm and the race tech springs measure 472mm the older xr's have the shorter springs like the replacement springs but the 2003 has longer springs. I know that they supply a spacer tube and washers for shimming up the length but the shim seems to be about 2.5 inches and this to me is excessive. Anyone with experience installing this in a 2003 xr400r ? I would like to know about this.

Thanks

:thumbsup:

I installed these in my 400 and the spacers calculated to 2.563" each. They work fine.

I went thru the same thing. Don't worry, they work fine.

I used pvc pipe cut to the correct length. The aluminum spacer supplied made alot of noise. Pvc quieted things down.

I also used the next step heavier spring than RaceTech suggested. I'm glad I did. I still bottom out the fork, but less often.
