Any of you with stock fork valving ever change the spring rates? The 2001 125SX comes with .38 springs and I have been told to put .42's OR a .40 in one fork and a .42 in the other. I'm a 175lb intermediate motocrosser. Any opinions?????

The 40 in on leg and 42 in the other is when you need the 41 spring rate. Not a single comapny from what I have heard makes the 41 spring's for the WP 125sx. I don't know what springs you should run. If you are bottoming out alot then You will need to stiffen up a bit.

I tried 0.40 springs in my 2001 KTM 125sx ,i weigh 175lb and i think they were an improvement.In the CR125 0.415 seems about right and the more i set up a friends 00 125 sx to be like the CR the better it seems to get:)
