Cannon racecraft. Have them wind you a spring for your weight.

That is all mine has on it. I am going to be playing around with it to see if I can't get it to work better, but for the most part, just a stiff spring has worked for me. Sure beats an $800 shock also, considering the bike was $800!

Racetech. Just buy a new spring. That's what I use, and it has worked pretty darn good for me.

Should have one for the kx60 also. They will custom wind a spring for a few bucks more, so they should be able to get you set up.

I had good luck with their custom wound rear spring.

I will call em tomorrow. Thanks for the info.

What number is your bike again? Were you doing endurance too or just sprints last year?

I am on bike #114.

I ran a few sprint rounds last year, and raced the last round of endurance with BiPolar.
