thru the years, factory spring colors are obviously different. What years/colors mean what ? Is there a resource/formula to use for ID ?
Is a '03 OEM shock spring "red" ? or an '04 ?

I think those are 90% for looks... The AFTERMARKET spring colors do make a difference though.

specific color to year spring color has got to mean something. If Penske,Progressive,Fox,etc. do it, Yamahaw proly does too ...looks are for show boys...

Those are aftermarket shock companies... I think Yammie does it for looks. :secret:



but that's the extent of my knowledge on the subject.

i know i got a yellow one n when i went to get the suspension tuned they guy said my rear spring was too stiff. i was thinking of replacing the spring if i can but plan on playing with the adjustments more at the track since it never felt bad to begining with.
