2002 GSXR1000 rear shock spring rates

Recommended Posts



I've got a Frankenstein bike.

GS1000 with a Bandit 1200 swing arm incl. linkage. I bought a 2002 GSXR1000 rear shock for it.

Rear suspension travel is 13cm, when I sit on it it drops about 6cm, with the spring set it it's tightest.  Now I need a stiffer spring.


Does anyone know what the sprin rate is for the stock spring? I've read somewhere it's 77N/mm, no clue if this is right.

I weigh about 96kg, should one step up be ok?
