    Front suspension upgrade XB12SS 2009

    Hi Guys,

    I want to upgrade my front forks with Hyperpro springs. However I'm not sure if they have the right one for me. On their website they only sell sets for other models. Is there by any chance a model that is the same as mine?

    Here is the list they provide.

    Hope there is a set that fits mine.


    TIA, Nick

    Not to second guess your decision, but why? The stock forks are really, really, good on a Buell.

    I think the forks are the same for the S and Ss (43mm) so...SP-BU09-SSA002

    I have really good luck with Race-tech. They show them as a Showa 47U cartridge and will calculate spring rate for you. http://racetech.com/ProductSearch/2/Buell/1125R/2008-09

    If all he's changing is the springs, he's likely just matching them to his weight. I agree though, the stock suspension on the XB line is really good.

    I agree on them being fine. But i'm having the whole forks being done by a specialist matching them to my weight and riding style. Also they are going to fit them with low friction fork seals.

    So nobody knows for sure?
