    before the utvs ,most rental outfits handled the good old Honda with it's solid axle and just enough power to get the job done,when you are in business downtime is a killer.

    I have to believe there is a coil spring manf out there that can supply springs. When we used to race stock cars there was about any coil over spring rate imaginable available. We had a simple tester for testing rates also. It's not that complicated if we just find the right source.

    My buddy still races. I'm pretty sure he has a spring rate tester. One of these days I'll take one off and go have it tested. I've never looked that close. Do you think front and rears are the same?

    the front springs aren't as long as the back,they look to me to be 3'' spring,but also need the free length and as mine have sagged don't know if I could get the proper measurement,i found a set on ebay that are 3x 14 that I can get any rate I want

    I am a warranty admin for yamaha, took awhile but i finally got an answer for yall's questions concerning the spring rate of the kyb shock assemblies from yamaha directly....

    Question: What is the spring rate of the front and rear shock springs

    answer: Thanks for using online tech support! The front should be 24~32n/mm and the rear 22~36n/mm. Thanks chris
    Deeyoh and MORSNO like this.

    The Trading Post renting the machines most likely have cow trails that cruise over humps and bumps and around a lake and beside a creek. I know there are some crazy butts like me that are gonna push the limit but that cash deposit will keep the reins tight.
