Does anyone know what the stock spring rate for the Vanilla R that came on the "01" Quasi is? I bought the bike lightly used and it came with a 750# Mountain Speed spring. I weigh 185 lbs and it still feels oversprung. I should add that I just PUSHed the Vanilla R and it has a "02" Super T on the front.

Thanks

Have an 01 Quasi......

but I'm running a PUSH'ed Float on it. Bought the frame used in 02 with a Vanilla R rear shock. The Vanilla R had a 550 lb spring and the previous owner weighed 175. Your 750 lb spring must have been used by a big boy......Why don't you give Titus a call and see what they recommend. You may need a lighter than normal spring for your weight now that you've had your Vanilla R PUSH'ed. I run less air pressure in my PUSH'ed Float than before I had it modified (from 190 down to 170 lbs of pressure).

You can reach Titus at (480) 894-8452.
