Paul, I owned a 1250 Suzuki, the fork springs are progressive and I changed them for 1.1 kg/mm straight wound (racetech). Putting progressive springs, even though they are slightly stronger than stock blackbird ones, would not be much of an upgrade IMO. The racetech website /www.racetech.com has a handy spring calculator, I think you probably know already.
On the bandit forum I remember someone cut off the progressive end of the fork springs to get budget straight wound. Not technically a good idea, but I guess if you can imagine something, someone has probably already done it.
Merry new year. The only direction now is up. (y)

The other you face running used springs us they could be cycled out and no good. Best to buy new for the price you'll pay.

I agree. Springs are cheap and you want them matched for your weight. I switched to racetech earlier this year and it made a world of difference. Would def recommend them to anyone looking for a quick and inexpensive suspension upgrade.

You can also go down the TRAXXION page where all internals are replace to make them suited to your weight & riding style .
For what you get with full upgrade is best available using the stock front , makes it fully adjustable and a much better set up.
They were a really good group to deal with as I'm in Perth , Australia so pretty reliant on them doing right thing which they did .
Or they will also do spring upgrades to the desired weight you select. .

Hi Paul,

Not sure on the GSX1250 springs, I fitted these a few years back and found a massive improvement
130680

Available in the UK from Home - Jaws Motorcycles for about £115 for a set.

Cheers,
Another Paul
