Ohlins 0.85kg fork springs for 2002 -2003 Honda 919 **SOLD

Up for sale are my Ohlins fork springs. They have about 4500 miles on them which is nothing for a quality product like Ohlins. These springs do not fit the newer 2004 -2007 919 forks.

My ride impressions.
There is a remarkable improvement in bump control and front end feedback especially when leaned over.
Countersteering and mid turn corrections are much easier to execute.
All in all I am very happy with this suspension upgrade.

The Ohlin's spring is shown on the right, notice it is NOT progressive wound.

Price is $60 plus actual shipping form CT.

Mistermike are those springs rider weight specific? If so what is the range they are suited for. I would be interested for sure.

Any quality aftermarket spring will be better than the 0.75kg stock progressive ones. The sweet spot on these would be for riders up to 200 lbs.

Mike I had to delay the install a little, I got the springs in last night and I have to say it is the best mod I have done to the bike. An awsome improvement over stock. Thanks again.

I will add to this when I get a chance to get it out in the twisties, most likely saturday. So far I must say the ride is much better on our frost heaved city streets. Rebound is much quicker than stock and brake dive is reduced at least 50%. I did also change the oil so I am sure fresh helps. Only took about two hours to remove, drain, refill, and reassemble on the bike.

Well I got these springs down some fun roads over the weekend and must say they are the bomb. I feel much more confident hauling it down much further into a corner with the reduced front end dive. They improve the overall ride quality making the long trips to and from the twisty parts much more pleasant. More than worth the money and labor to increase the niners fun factor.
