    The 2001 Judy C uses hydracoil dampening, but there are no dampener adjustments. It uses coil springs that if stock would be for a rider 140-170lbs.

    You can search ebay for some stiffer springs, contact White Bros and see if they have any leftover, or possibly increase the compression dampening by using a heavier weight oil (stock is 5w).

    Here is the owners manual
