Installed progressive springs and found them to be a good investment. Now the rear shock feels a little weak. Looking at Top Gum/MMP possible rebuild and spring upgrade. Anyone have experience with these folks? Website seems straight forward. Any advice appreciated.

What kind of riding do you do on the KLR most of the time? How much do you weigh? I've thought about getting progressive springs only to stiffen up the front end dive when breaking. Otherwise the stock springs work well for me for the asphalt and gravel riding I do on the KLR.

Savage--Thanks for the thoughts--mostly do hard surface riding, probably 80-90% and thanks to the sands of time settling I'm at 220. Thing is I'd like to take the wife along sometimes--not much but sometimes and that adds another 130. About the progressive springs up front--I wouldn't hesitate. Helps with both the breaking dive and the wash boards on gravel. Thanks again.
