Wilbers Zero Friction Progressive Fork Springs / DL650A V-Strom '04-'11
Wilbers Zero Friction Progressive Fork Springs have several advantages over linear springs. A Progressive Rate Spring has the advantage of a rising rate resistance to compression. The benefit of this is that the spring can be soft enough at the start of the travel to offer a "plush" ride, yet be firm enough at the end of the travel to soak up the big bumps and dramatically reduce nose-dive under deceleration and braking.
Don't forget the Fork Oil! You will need 1 Liter of 7wt or 10wt for these springs.
7wt oil is recommended for general purpose and for more dirt road riding.
10wt oil is recommended for sport-oriented street riding.
Air chamber is 150mm with springs removed and forks completely compressed.
Instructions for setting air chamber:
1) Remove fork spring and drain old oil.
2) Compress fork fully with spring removed.
3) Add oil until oil level is the prescribed distance from the top of the tube - this is your air chamber.
Piston rods should be pumped several times to dispel any remaining air before final measurement is made.
