Front Forks

Post by danielklinger »

I just replaced the seals in my front forks. I was wondering...I noticed the springs are different on each end. I assume the bigger end goes down and the narrower end goes up. Is this correct? I didn't notice how they were when I took them out of the fork. Thanks for your feedback if you have any thoughts. Thanks, Dan

Those are progressive springs; an upgrade. You are right about the orientation. Narrow part goes up.
