could you use stiffer springs? Sure. And for $100 if you want to get them, go for it.

Honestly you likely wont notice much if any difference on the street though is my point.

I honestly just want a nice fresh rebuild, that's really it. I figured new springs for my weight since he has them apart.

Re: Boredz V49 - Canucks optional :P

yeah, a rebuild is probably a good idea. If you ahve the spare $100, go for a set of OEM replacement springs too. Outside that nothing fancy is really needed

that's all I was looking for.

Right, that's my point too
That's why I just wanted to make sure I'm not spending money I really don't have too. I weight 250 without gear; not sure how you wear 45-50 of gear! I just assumed 10lbs give or take. Shift kevlar jeans, leather gloves & jackets, my A* boots, and my helmet, that's close to 10 lbs isn't it?

That is more like 25-30lbs

Put it on get on the scale, then take it off and get on the scale.

Leathers are 30-40lbs by themselves.

Re: Boredz V49 - Canucks optional :P

But it's just a leather jacket...it's really that much

Now I'm going to try it, I've had it all in my arms before and figured that's about 10 lbs or so

I must have been remembering what my work gear weighs, which also doesnt seem like it would be that much but it is.

The more I think about it, I now where I got that 50lb from. Flying. All of my gear in my bag but I also had clothes and shit and it all came close to 50lbs which is where they charge extra for your luggage. Still close to 30. a lot more than people would think

Nothing really needs fixing. It is only 3 years old. The carpet is just because we have dogs.
