Well, I'd say that there are lots of 41mm (I have information that says the Tengai forks are 38mm, but you have a bike in hand. We only got the Tengai for two years and not many of them at that.) forks around. Finding springs shouldn't be a problem.
Obviously, you would not want to put springs in the Tengai that are meant for a motocross bike with 14" of fork travel, but finding something that has a similar travel should work out OK.
The Gen 2 KLR has 41mm forks. Its travel is similar to the Tengai. Fork springs are preloaded with spacers; adjusting the spacer length should not be difficult.
I'd measure the fork tubes and find springs that are similar. I would hazard a guess that springs for a Gen 1 or a Gen 2 will work, depending on the diameter of the Tengai tubes. Even that might no matter much, as the springs are that close a fit to the inside of the fork tube...
