Will 08 showa spring fit 09 kayaba shock?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

My friends got an 08 crf450 with a lighter spring in the rear and I was looking to try it out on my 09 crf450. Was wondering if the springs are interchangeable between the 08 showa shock and the 09 kayaba shock?

Thanks

The CRF and KXF, '09 and '10, are a larger ID spring. The '08 spring will not fit. The YZF shock springs are the same ID as they've been for over a decade.

Its not a great fit but it will work as a tester. The Showa spring is a little longer and a little bigger in diameter. It is best to use a small collar like the ones that come with Factory Connection springs. You may also have to use a spring compressor to get the preload rings to start on the threads.
