    fox twin clicker spring rate options...

    Hi guys,
    This is my first post. I used to be on the hawkgt.com website but for some reason or another i can't log on anymore. Anyway, I have a used fox twin clicker that i'm about to put on my bike. Since it is used, I don't konw what spring is on it. In fact, it looks nothing like the red ones that used to ship with the product. It doesn't matter...what i really want to know is, what were the available rates? 900, 1000, 1100? I'm about 155lb and intend on doing street riding/commuting. Suggestions?

    Springs

    I weigh 190-195 and use a 1300# spring/ Feel alright. But besides changing to proper spring, I would recommended revalving.. I have a 1000# eibach spring in great condition for sale

      To spark this one back up.... I found a "used fox tc from an older honda" but the guy doesnt know what bike it was on.. Its got the orange spring from the pic, still waiting on the s.r numbers off it but as far as the eye to eye length were they all pretty universal?

          The spring says 7.40/ 840#. is this a little light for the nt?? And its 12.5 inches from eye to eye..

            Sounds like that spring is definitely not going to work on a Hawk. Most Hawk riders would probably use a spring in the 1200# - 1400# range.

            All the best,

                i just was digging into this fox shock spring rate thing couple weeks back. stock rate for a hawk is 1050. lots of t.c. foxes (made for hawks) came with a 1000. i read on this forum that certain fox shocks are for different bikes like the cbr 600. because the linkage for the rear shock is different it requires a lighter spring like in the 750-850 range...or something like that. you will need to figure out if that applies to your shock or spring. you might need to revalve? somebody who knows for shure might clear this up for you.

                    I hate this topic, it just keeps comming up again and again and the final verdict is always the same. PENSKE FROM HORD!!. its hard to justify spending money on anything else. Im currently rockin the F4i converted shock but I know what Im savin up for. Do it once Do it right. (Not twice like me.)

                      Yeah yeah yeah i know, but the thing is, a twin clicker *is* right, this ones just got the wrong spring set-up. Theres no way i can afford the penske, so for 200 and some odd bucks a nice tc is well worth it IMO.
