Hey Jerry,

Thanks for your reply.

I weigh about 215 so I upgraded the springs in both the front and back suspension.

For the forks I just bought the Cogent 42 kg/mm springs & DDC Drop in Damper cartridges and installed them. They feel much better. Nowhere near the amount of nose dive.

For the rear shock I bought the Cogent 7.2 kg/mm replacement Spring. I considered replacing the whole shock but ended up taking an incremental approach. As I'm in the process of replacing the rear spring (It's apart on my work bench as I write this) I don't have anything to report yet. I'm hopeful that it will serve my purposes and I won't have to buy the full shock replacement. I have to see whether the stock dampening will work well enough with the replacement spring at my weight.

Best of luck withy your upgrades. I not only weigh around 240, but carry 25-30 pounds of cargo on the bike at all times, and have added at least 20 pounds worth of accessories to it. So it is seriously loaded down.


The above is my opinion. Your mileage may vary.
1994/2001 custom built XT225 with a ton of aftermarket parts.
