the "weight" your talking about are the spring rates. hyperco have 350 front and 250 rear (or is it 300F 200R?....i am up to my eyeballs in searching about suspension stuff these days so please pardon me if thats off) and those rates keep you off the bump stops (higher spring rate= stiffer spring)james120 said:I have heard combining KYB AGX shocks with hypercoil is a good.

I agree with you with the drop issue, but I can't see where it comes.chriscar said:
To further clarify that, "Hypercoils" is HyperCo's brand name for suspension springs.bahearn said:First, hypercoil is incorrect name, it's hyperco.
Just one correction there. In countries that use metric, kg(f)/mm (kilograms-force/mm) is the standard. The reason for that is simplicity: Spring rates can be expressed as relatively small numbers with kg(f)/mm.bahearn said:Second, it's obvious there are some really green people here who need the full spec spelled out. It's 350 lb/in, as in pounds of force required to compress the spring one inch. This is the standard way to specify spring stiffness in North America. For metric countries, you'll see kg/cm, kilograms of force required to compress the spring one centimeter. These numbers have absolutelty nothing to do with the amount of total weight the springs can support.
Only because he is absolutely a beginner and doesn't understand what is meant when spring rate is mentioned. A lot of people take a verbal shortcut and say "350 pound" springs because the typical audience understands it's really "350 pounds per inch". He doesn't seem to know that.manuelga said:James120 asked clearly about the weight, not about the compression rate,
I pulled a number out of my ass to use an example.manuelga said:wich by the way, you're wrong:
Read any of the NPM suspension articles to see where that limit comes from.manuelga said:I agree with you with the drop issue, but I can't see where it comes.
