    Smile Stock Rear Shock Colors?

    Dear FZ1 Forum,

    I am new to this forum. So if I do not follow the correct mores, please forgive me.

    Recently I bought a very nice 2010 FZ1 with only 13.000km on the clock. It is a wonderful machine.

    I'm having trouble figuring out wether I have a stock rear shock spring or an aftermarkt spring. (I know that the shock absorber cartridge is stock)

    Usualy I see that the stock spings are grey. Mine is bright red without any markings or writing.

    My question is: What color is the stock rear spring of a 2010 FZ1?

    Is the FZ1 sold with a red spring?

    Does anybody know what this red spring is?

    Thank you very much.

    Regards, Thimmo



    PS: I searched this forum for the answer. No result. Hence my post.

    I think it varies. My 2012 came stock with a red spring. And my buddies 2010 came stock with a silver spring.

    If there are no markings on it. Chances are itís stock.

    Thank you Ferraiolo1,

    Then it is probably stock :-)

    Do you (or anybody who reads this) know if there is a difference in spring load and charictaristics between the stock silver/grey and he stock red? Or is is just a flashy color?

    Thanks!

    I rode both and couldnít tell a difference. Upgrade to the r1 shock anyway. The stocker is rubbish
