aprilia SXV rear spring

The SXV uses the same rear spring as some other supermoto, does anyone know what that is? CRF450 maybe? I need to order a fatboy spring, and racetech doesn't list the SXV.

i don't know first hand, but a quick google search put me onto them. I just picked up some springs from Diverse Suspension. You may want to look into them. I was reading that they supply big name shops with springs. They then rebadge them and bump up the price.

With my ghetto spring rate test, they were accurate. My test method wasn't the best, but the results were right on with what I expected from the calculated results.

look on ebay too...there's a diverse seller on there that is like another $20 lower I think.

I got mine directly from Diverse though, and I couldn't be happier.

Oh FWIW, my test method involved me balancing on it, and Krillin measuring the displacement with an engineering scale.
