Hyperpro progressive front springs.

Best money ever spent! The chattery front end is gone, the forks rebound properly, I now have the perfect bike.

This may be a very stupid question, I have never changed the springs in the forks. Does it really make that much of an improvement over standard ones.
I love my crossrunner but I if it makes that much difference may be I should change them over winter.

Massive difference. When you see the Honda springs and the Hyperpro sitting together on the bench it's pretty obvious there's going to be an improvement. Hyperpro's get rid of the chatter over most surfaces. The real answer is to get forks off an old VFR with rebound and preload adjustment but for £100 the springs are doing a great job.

Is this a job a non mechanic could do themselves, or what did a dealer charge?

I am quite handy with a spanner but I opted for a mechanic. I am lucky to have an ex-honda mechanic who set up on his own after the dealership folded, I think I gave him £30 for the job!

I swapped my Crossrunner for the Crosstourer a couple of months ago, not a good move. I cannot get on with the CT, the CR had a lot more road bias and was a hoot, with CT, I normally end up turning for home!

Hey 54 there's still a morning frost up there at the moment. Where do you plan to get yours serviced?
