Will a longer shock spring than reccomended still work?

Recommended Posts

I just got an 09 KX450F and I need a new spring. I saw one on Ebay for a good deal, but it's 15mm longer than what is speced out for my bike. Will this still work out? It measures the same inner and outer dimensions just a bit longer.

It's a Factory Connection ALN-0063 and they recommend a ALS-0063 for my bike. Any info would be appreciated.

15mm is quite some more but may fit if there is enough space. Check your current spring position. Is there enough room on top for let's say at least 20mm? If so, it'll very likely fit. Just if you preloaded the current spring very much, you'd need to add more, to make sure it'll fit.

Just make sure ID and OD are the same (and you wrote, they are).

Sounds good to me :thumbsup:
