Only $240 bucks. Kawasaki KRX 1000 2 Seat Tender Spring Upgrade Kit (non live valve) (backordered Est. Ship date 3/25/21)

I just installed a set, I'm gathering photos for a full report.

reset shock settings twice on front / rear to really dial them in.

2nd time did 4.5" down on fronts (instructions called for 3" but that only gave me 13" of clearance),

rear leave crossover rings to stock position.

16" clearance front / rear with stock tires. Front springs are wayyyyyy longer then stockers.

Have you driven it yet? I wonder if this is just worth doing early and being done with it.

Haven't done a major ride on them yet, but around the yard and cornering you can tell you have more suspension travel up front. Front end will float more, takes a set in a corner and then stays planted. I hit a rail road tie at about 25-30mph. soaked it right up pretty smoothly. Haven't had the chance to open it up yet and do 40 through deep woops, but my guess is that it'll soak them up much better than stock. While the shocks were apart I also added the anti-clunk rubber o-rings so that'll be interesting to see if they help with suspension knocking.

left the crossover ring in stock location for lower springs front / rear. Rear top lock ring in stock location too. Front lock ring 4.5" from the top of shock. I think instructions called for 3" down but that only gave me 13-14" of front height so I pulled fronts back off and reset them at 4.5" down. My settings have me a 16" front and rear now after a few short drives with no radical trail use yet.

Rocky have you noticed any spring bowing in the fronts since there alot longer then the stock ones? Meaning have u noticed them rubbing the shock body? Thanks
