    Lyrik coil owners, please help.

    I got a used lyrik u-turn. My guess is that the coil is the std med spring. My question is, does RS color code the Lyrik springs like they do on the Pike? Is there actually a colored band on the spring or another way to tell the spring weight? All the pics I've seen online show an all black spring.

    Thanks

    This is the marking according to hibike.com:

    x-soft (below 63Kg), white
    soft (63-72Kg), yellow
    medium (70-82Kg), red
    firm (82-91Kg), blue
    x-firm (from 91Kg), black

    In my experience, the springs are quite firm, the soft was much too hard for me @ 65 kg plus clothing and gear. Even x-soft does not give me 25% sag (but it rides very nicely).

    Thanks for.the confirmation. I was going to open it up and check but haven't had the time yet. Figured I'd ask in the interim. I need to jump up one spring level. I'm getting just a hair over 30% sag and almost bottomed out on my last ride. That was merely a singletrack run so figured I'd better pony up the $50.
