Can anyone tell me who offers progressive or straight rate front and rear springs for the 2017 Versys X300 to accomodate a lighter 130 pound rider?
Sonic says they springs bu need to know free length, ID and OD of the stock springs. Does anyone have that info?
Thanks

I just ordered a Hyperpro Streetbox kit for my versys (includes front progressive springs, oil and rear shock). With the standard spring the preload adjustment range is 160lb-220lb. They advertise the included spring can be changed to accommodate lighter or heavier riders but you would want to contact them for details. At ~$600 for the set I don't think you'll find better quality for the money. Not that there are many options

Thanks but the bike only has a hundred miles on it and she just needs it to be softer sprung. How bizarre that no one has a softer spring for the shock
Here are the stock spring specs in case anyone is interested for the 2017 Kawasaki Versys X300.

The spring ID 48 mm or 1.88 inches
The spring OD is 69 mm
The compressed spring on the shock is 193 mm
Free length 197 mm
Wire Diameter 10.8 mm
Approx Rate 187 N/M

Hope someone can let me know about a softer spring.

Try YSS. they make great suspension, and can put the spring rate of your preference.
