    2005 Boxxer help

    I know that there is a suspension forum, but more people will see this, this way. I have a 2005 Boxxer and need a different spring for it. What I need is a soft (silver colored dot on it) spring. Does anyone know of a bike shop that carries springs, or does anyone have one I can buy. All of the shops that I have called can order them but it will take 1-2 weeks and I have procrastinated to long and need one for the Sol Vista race Aug1-3. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I would recommend Peak Cycles (bikeparts.com) but it looks like they're out of stock.

    I'd call them anyway to see how long it'd actually take.

    Chris- I have the stock spring that came with my Boxxer('08), I think it would work for you at your size, I went with a firm spring for my weight.

    Thanks Rick, but the 05 boxxer is designed to be sprung from both sides, so I dont know if that would work.

    Is the '05 a 7" or 8"? I have a couple of springs laying around, although I don't know if they are 6" or 7" (my first Boxxer was a '99 with 6" and then I had an '03).

    I'll measure them tonight and let you know the colors and length.

    '03 is a 7". But you might be able to slip in a spacer + some preload discs to make it work for an 8" setup. That spacer I'm referring to is a white plastic bit ~ 3/4 (0.75) inch long & can be found on the top of a 7" Boxxer. Lengthwise, I think the 7" spring+white plastic spacer is the same as the 8" spring only. So, OP, you might want to give a go w/ the 8" single sideed spring setup. I do not believe the '05 has tapered stanchies.

    Besides spring length, I think the only other difference as far as the guts go, is the spring seat/piston length. The lowers has longer bushings in the 8" version to deal w/ the longer piston, but you '05 is good to go w/ respect to that.

    Mojo should have light single sided springs on hand since there are so many little tikes riding for them.

    Plz let me know how it goes.

    Edit: there may be another black plastic piecein the base of the spring on the compression side. Pull that out & drop your 8" spring in that leg. Trial fit the top of the compression cart to the spring first to make sure it fits. Good luck!

    What's this about a Sol Vista race? No info on their site. Sun-Tues seems like weird days for a race.
    Keep the Country country.
