Sonic Fork Springs

SonicSprings.com

Many of you know that I have been recommended sonic fork springs for years. I installed them in my DL650 and, along with my fork brace, they transformed my little long legged dual sport into a very stable bike that rivaled my expensive sport touring machine.

Sonic springs are not only high quality, but they are much less expensive than the offerings from spring companies that market using large profit margins for middlemen/salesman.

Sonic Springs also has a spring rate calculator on their site that helps you chose the best spring rate for your weight, load, load and riding style.

Tell them richlandrick sent you. What do I get out of it? The satisfaction of knowing my riding buddies are getting the best products for the best price.

Thanks for the plug Rick, we really appreciate it.

I still need to order the fork brace from you, in fact I think I'll go do that now. :mrgreen:

I recommend Sonic springs to everyone I know. Love my 1.0's and the AdventureTech fork brace. Totally transformed the bike, night and day difference with the fork brace too. My riding buddy said it has increased my cornering speeds by a noticeable amount. He said I'm back to my old FJR cornering levels. I really like tight rough mountain roads now.

About 0.75 on your bike.

Rick,
Thanks for the reminder. I just ordered a set. I've been diverted lately by a less than comfortable seat, but a spring upgrade is at the top of my farkle list and I'm looking forward to doing this one.

Anywhere from 0.80 to 1.1.

What's your weight and what sort of riding do you do?

IF you go to their site, they have a simple questionnaire you plug in your weight, etc. and they tell you the correct spring rate.

We have started carrying progressive suspension shocks, but you just can't beat Sonic fork springs for upgrading your front suspension. They cost less and work great and are available directly from Sonic.

I used them in my 2005 DL650 along with a fork brace and my Wee was transformed from a wiggly legged dual sport into an extremely competent adventure sport touring machine.

Don't be fooled by people selling similar springs with large mark ups. Get yours directly from Rich at Sonic Springs and save.
