HELP with Spring selection on 450X

Recommended Posts

A friend just bought a brand new 450X and we know nothing about where to get new springs for his bike and what would be the best rate. He is 6'3" 300 lbs. Are there quality springs vs cheap springs to stay clear from?

Any info would be great on helping us decide what would work best for him.

Thanks,

Jeff

Calling anyone with shop (valving/spring rate) knowledge would be of help.

... I think I sound like a broken record, but ordering them from Precision Concepts can be done... usually an Eibech Spring is what you'd get.

Just know, ONLY doing new springs can make the suspension SUPER harsh... in the front specifically. Even though he may not need the performance gain of the valving and choice of oil weight... it'd be best to send them in and have them redone with new springs (setup for his weight and ability).
