I'm kind of a lurker because I don't own a KDX but have one in the family (01/200). Hoping you can help. My son needs heavier fork springs. My search of your group points towards FRP/Racetech springs that are short, cold wound, and don't seem to be very well regarded. Another route is XR400 springs which are most likely too heavy for him. If you go to buy these springs from Honda, they only list one part number anymore, so the various weights that used to be available for the different years are no longer distinguishable. I'm wondering if any of you have tried actual Kawi springs that are offered in .36 and .37 for this weight range? He might weigh 150 with full ride gear (including a few tools and a roll of quarters). He is a good flying woods rider but not a superscross type. Any comments on the Kawi springs? Any other ideas? Thanks!
