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.
Yes they have a marking on them.
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.
