The 'Original' Progressive Rate Fork Springs soak up the small road bumps, yet are firm enough to absorb the molar-rattling ones. Spring rates have been chosen to reduce front end "dive" during braking, yet still provide excellent ride comfort. Better yet, we warranty our fork springs for life! Progressive Rate Fork Springs have several advantages over straight rate springs. A Progressive Rate Spring has the advantage of a rising rate resistance to compression. The benefit of this is that the spring can be soft enough at the start of the travel to offer a "plush" ride, yet be firm enough at the end of the travel to soak up the big bumps.

Replaced the 4" shortened stock springs last week, and am really pleased with the results. The PO was a big guy, who modified the stock springs, and she was just too rough for my <150# , 70+ yr old body. Something had to change.
Ride is so much smoother! Should have gotten them ages ago. Slight dip on braking, but not excessive. Similar to my old Hondas.
Only took an hour and a half. 2 bolts for the handlebar, and unscrew the cap. Don't use the stock spacer on the '93, either. New Progressive springs are slightly longer than stock. About an inch of preload, w/o the spacer. Not hard to get her re-assembled.
