Base Price: $315.00

Product Code: UT-SPK-DR-YZX-RST

The OEM rear springs on the Yamaha 1000R are very rigid, and gives a harsh ride over small chatter bumps, as well as tending to “kick-up” the rear end off of jumps and bumps and making it land on its nose. Our kit delivers a much plusher, more compliant ride; and flattens out the landings off of jumps. The kit is very user friendly, it needs no shock modifications to the shocks to install the kit, and comes with an installation instruction sheet, as well as our recommended settings for compression, rebound (F/R) and front shock pre-load. 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.

Kit includes:
(2) Eibach Tender springs
(2) Spring divider
(2) Cross-over collar sets
(1) Installation instruction sheet.

5 of 5 Tender Spring Kit March 25, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Collinsville, IL United States  
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.

4 of 5 Yamaha YXZ 1000r Fox 2.5" REAR SHOCK Tender/Dual-R October 17, 2016
Reviewer: David Britton from Oregon City, OR United States  
The instructions for the shock settings were not clear. 1 3/4 turns in from what starting point? My Yamaha manual says to start at all the way in and turn out so many clicks or turns from there.
