    aftermarket spring

    Hi i am Looking for an after market spring for my iron horse warrior 4.0 and i have no clue where to look. you see my problem is the rear spring i very weak and bottoms every where, just me going of a curb on my street it will bottom. so basically i am looking for a spring that is maybe longer and stiffer any ideas.

    the website says its a fox vanilla coil. i don't think that should bottom out on you, unless your settings are screwed up

    I think the bike shop can order you one. I have a 650lb spring from my trek bruiser 3 after it broke in half. If it fits your shock it may work well. IF the one you have is also 650 that is bottoming out (like mine did) there is a special 1000lb (something like that, maybe it was 1500) spring rate that was designed around the rst 22a one. I know a site that sells it but I can't remember the name.

    It sounds like he needs a new spring. When a X Fusion Glyde blows up you get oil all over the BB area of the bike and you have no rebound, just a spring. Ask me how I know......

    XFusion's site: Q. I cannot achieve the correct sag on my coil shock. What should I do?
    A. If you cannot get enough sag on your coil shock, your spring is too stiff. Contact X-Fusion to order a new spring. If you have too much sag on your coil shock and have applied the maximum two turns of preload, your spring is too soft. Contact X-Fusion to order a new spring. Remember – TWO TURNS MAXIMUM PRELOAD ON COIL SPRINGS. TOO MUCH PRELOAD WILL CAUSE THE SPRING TO COIL BIND AND POSSIBLY BREAK.

    Both of those are two different lengths, and I dont think theyre the same length as the one you have now. An airshock is going to be stiffer and not so bouncy per se.

    Are you looking for a technical scientific explanation here? I would imagine that you would have the knowledge. Perhaps search on Google.com. I'm sure there lots of explantions exist.

    I don't need to "google" to know that is totally wrong.
