DR500 81-83

Recommended Posts

Hello

Does anybody know where I might find the replacement springs for the front forks for a 81-83 Dr-500?

I can find the dust seal and fork seal kits, but no luck with the springs. My googling seems to have found a dead end.

I wonder if there is a spring from a different bike I could use?

Thanks!

Have you tried Progressive or any of the after marfet spring suppliers?

All you need is the spring O.D. and length which will be a match with many other bikes.

The wire diameter and number of coils will determine spring rate.

Any of the spring makers should be able to set you up.

Thanks!

Nothing at Progressive unless I can determine a similar spring from a different bike.

I'm going to tear apart my parts bikes forks to get the spring out and then go shopping at some local spring suppliers..
