FZR600 Hyperco Spring

Finally got my new spring in. With the 3 lined up you can see the difference in heights. I don't know how people can run the FZR spring (Orange) in place of the R6 spring (Red). There would be far too much preload, and compressing the spring enough to get it on the shock is next to impossible because of the 700+lb spring rate. The hyperco spring (Blue) is the proper rate for the FZR and proper size for the R6 Shock. Should have just done it right the first time.

is the hyperco spring the same rate as stock FZR spring?

You can get the hyperco spring in basically any rate you want in increments of 50lbs. I believe I went with a 700# spring as that was closest to stock. The R6 spring is way too soft to use on the FZR (something like 450#?)
