Can anyone confirm what configuration of fork springs the 81 RZ would have come with? Progressive wound or straight wound? I have a set of forks with straight wound springs, however the Haynes manual talks about installing the springs with the tight wound section at the top.

The straight wound springs I have are 506mm free length which is what the manual states they should be.

later models have those springs, perhaps the 31ks dont?

Hey Peter,

You dealing with a LC or RZ? All the springs for the RZ I have seen are straight. I have a pile of them but cannot confirm if any are 31K.

John,

I do not think this is the case. I have multiple sets of springs from the 1UA and they are not progressively wound.

These are 31K forks.
