This is a tender / dual rate spring kit from Schmidty racing suspensions for the rear springs on Yamaha 1000R. The OEM springs are very rigid and give a harsh ride over small chatter bumps; they also tend to “kick-up” the rear end off of jumps and bumps and making it land on its nose. Our kit
delivers a much plusher and more compliant ride, flattening off jump landings. Our spring kits are totally user friendly and require no shock modification to install. Installation only requires basic tools and 3-4 hours time.
Our dual rate spring kits come with a detailed and complete, step-by-step installation instruction sheet with settings, diagrams, and photos. You will need to remove the rear shocks to install the kit. The set-up retains the OEM rear spring, but adds a tender spring on top of it, and has adjustable crossover collars, turning the shock into a dual rate setup, which will allow you to dial in and adjust the crossover point when the dual rate tender spring transfers 100% back to the bottom OEM spring.
