Pourcel's KXF with 5.0 shock spring (!)

Recommended Posts

motoverte magazine tested Pourcel's bike (kxf450 CLS/PRO CIRCUIT) and detailed settings.

He rides a procircuit 5.0 shock spring.

I am surprised about this choice because it is 2 rates softer than OEM?

5.0 is in kg or nm?

How can explained this setting?

Thanks guys

the spring for the most part is rider preference. Sure he couldn't get away with a 4.5 but a 5.0, sure. some people prefer a little less spring in the back.
