I just installed a set of 440x torsion springs (yellow/red/red) on my '03 sport and it sags now.

Before with the stock springs I could step off the sled and the blocks would touch the rubber stopper.

Now they are in the middle when I step off. I lift up on the grab bar and it sags back down about 2''.

I thought these are stiffer?

Suggestions?

I believe its the open angle on your new springs. So now have less preload. Not sure what springs I put in mine when I replace them but it did the same as yours

I put in yellow/white/red cant figure out what they lbs rate is, but the open angle is quite a lot more than my old trail springs she sagged just like you said and I did compare springs open angle during the swap and expected it the change.

if you want a rough tough spring get these

503 189 992
503 189 992

work awesome if you weigh 210.

I have mine on setting 1 and they sit against the front stopper when i'm off the sled. Doesn't act like a springboard either.

Do you mean the -992, -994 springs? I just put a set of the -674, -675 springs on my gade. I haven't a chance to ride yet, but they do seem better than the stockers for sure....although I have them set on #3 to get them almost where they're supposed to be. I may need to get the -992, -994 springs. We'll see how they ride this weekend....

I went with the stiffer ones and it worked out well. I don't have many miles on them but they are on setting 1 with more room to play once they are broken in. I don't recommend these for light people. (under 180 lbs.)

Are those the 440x springs?

What's the color code on them?

they are the springs to the grand touring 2 upper. I believe the color code is something like RED GREEN YELLOW. dont' hold me to that but it's on the chart that skippydoo posted. They are 11.1 diam and 73* preload.
