Heavy Duty Rear Springs?

Postby Dan_Lockwood » Sun Mar 25, 2018 11:58 am

Does Honda offer a heavier rate spring for the rear shocks?

I'll be riding pretty much single and I weigh in around 250#. Hopefully my wife will ride it and she's around a 100# less or more. Touchy subject right there... :)

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Richard, but I thought our combined weight may be over the top adjustment level.

I would recommend the Hagon shocks, they transform the ride of the Helix and I'm sure are stiffer than the originals so would be better for the heavier rider or with passenger. The bet modification I ever did with my Helix.
