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.

**Will not fit: 2019 SS SE, 2020 SS Special & SS XTR, 2021-2023**

Kit Includes:

  • (2) Eibach Tender Spring
  • (2) Spring Separator / Slider
  • (2) Crossover Collar Set
  • (1) Installation Instruction Sheet
We use quality Eibach springs in our kits, because they are the best! While Eibach is not the cheapest spring, we want to provide you with the best possible kit when you go to upgrade your ride with replacement springs. Eibach springs, combined with the features of our Schmidty Racing Suspensions hardware, create a spring kit that is second-to-none in the industry! Customers who have chosen our proven kits have been thrilled with the ride and performance we offer. Many of our customers originally used spring kits from our competitors before coming to us, but after being disappointed with others' results they tried ours and wholeheartedly affirm the superior quality.

We encourage you to ask our competitors what springs they are using in their kits!

5 of 5 Tender springs on YXZ1000R April 10, 2022
Reviewer: Patrick O'Connor from Peoria, AZ United States  
First Big improvement was adding the nitrogen caps from SRS and that made a huge difference adding 200psi nitrogen, still wasn't able to get rid of the bucking on bumps but it certainly helped. By adding this kit changed the game 100%. I am starting all over again with shock adjustments, right out of the box I was able to run sections at 65 mph which is way faster than I could before, what an amazing difference it made. The kit was easy to install and I actually didn't completly remove my shocks off the car, I removed the outside upper A arm bolt and brake caliper and bungee corded it up out of the way and unbolted lower shock mount. I did have to discharge the nitrogen in order to push the shock up and out. Installed the rest of kit as per instructions. I set my preload at 9 inches from shock head to top of factory spring, I do run a spare tire, cooler, jack and tools all in the back bed so that extra weight needs to be compensated for with preload. All in all very happy. Thanks SRS!

The springs installed well.  It was a fairly easy replacement and went according to the instructions.  Haven't had a chance to try them out yet.  Hope they help!

5 of 5 YXZ tender spring kit August 20, 2017
Reviewer: Gerald Audette from Minneapolis, MN United States  
In my opinion the only down fall on the 2016 YXZ is too much spring pre-load front and back and the factory and heavy rear spring. I backed pre-load and shocks off from factory set-up and was very impressed with ride and handling. I dialed in the front to near perfection, but the rear spring was to much. Looking for a practical solution I came across the Schmidty Racing tender kit. I installed the kit on my YXZ and could not be more pleased, it does what they say and claim! There is a lot of Hype out there for a solution for the stiff, donkey kick spring on the YXZ. I only found Schmidty Racing to have a practical, sensible solution - you guys rock !! Thanks for a good sensible quality product.
