K-Tech linear shock springs are manufactured from the highest grade chrome silicone wire, each spring is cold-coiled, heat-treated, pre-set and ground to length.
Phosphate coating is then applied to protect against corrosion and then powder coated before the part number is applied. All springs are manufactured to DIN 2095 grade1.
Linear-rate springs are evenly wound from top to bottom so that the force (road surface bumps and potholes, acceleration and braking) remains the same from the initial input right through to when the springs won’t compress any further whereas progressive springs are wound closer at one end and further apart at the other.
Linear springs give you the ability to fine tune the suspension closer to your specific weight, rather than using progressive springs which will always be a compromise as they are manufactured to work over a much wider weight range.
The K-Tech Suspension R&D team have developed these springs over a period of extensive research and testing on their own CRF1000 Africa Twin, having found the OEM Honda shock springs does not allow for a good sag measurement while still having any usable preload adjustment once the rider is mounted.
The K-Tech linear spring is 10mm longer than the standard OEM Honda spring, giving more initial preload, and by selecting the correct spring rate for your weight, this will enable you to correctly set sag measurement on your CRF1000 / CRF1100 Africa Twin, whilst still having plenty of preload adjustment available.
All springs have their rate laser etched on the end and are manufactured to DIN 2095 grade 1.
