Well that explains why, of the 3 gixxers I've had, the '07 felt the best. My current bike is an '04 gixxer with, I believe, stone stock suspension.

I haven't looked up the '04 springs, but you can go to Racetech.com and see for yourself. Do the spring calculator and it tells you what stock is and what they recommend for your weight/ bike.

According to racetech they're .850kg/mm springs in the '04. So if I'm reading this right.........they're for a 170 lb rider.


I think I was 170 in...like....middle school?

IIRC, for 200# rider they recommend a .95 or 1.0 spring in that bike... but you can manipulate those numbers around depending on how you like the bike set up.

Some suspension gurus get a stiffer spring so they don't have to preload as much/ have more preload to work with. Some set it up soft(er) for riders that prefer softer springs at different tracks... etc.

That's why I leave my suspension to a pro, I'm a mental midget when it comes to suspension! It's black magic I tells ya!
