Rear Suspension Spring (Options):


(ArizonaWarrior's Rear Suspension Spring Notes)

Warrior, Stock Rear Spring:
782-pounds, linear, 188mm free length, 172mm installed length, 58mm ID, 83mm OD.

--------------------------------------------------------

Warrior, Eibach Rear Spring:
USA Model Number: . . . . . Metric Model Number:
0700.225.1000 . . . . . . . 180-060-0175
0700 = 7" (178mm) . . . . . 180 = 180mm
225 = 2.25" (57mm) . . . . . 060 = 60mm
1000 = 1,000 pounds . . . . 0175 = 175N/mm (~999 pounds)

Note1: I installed this spring on my stock 2003 Warrior shock without a spring compressor.
A spring compressor is required on the 2002 shock only, but its always easier to do with a
compressor. The Eibach 0700.225.1000 is of course rated 1,000 pounds, linear.

Note2: its possible, even likely, the 0700.225.1000 and the 180-060-0175 are really
the same, with 'rounded-off dimensions' due to conversion math from inch to metric.

Note3: the stock Warrior rear spring rate is advertised by Barons as 725 pounds, which
is a marketing error its 782 pounds. The Barons rear spring (yellow) is rated 930 pounds.
As of this writing Barons sells the same spring for the Road Star Warrior, the VStar 650
Custom and Classic, and the Road Star 1600 and 1700.

--------------------------------------------------------

Warrior, 'Progressive Suspension' Rear Spring:
Part Number 1181-20B (aka #01-1181R) (a.k.a. #1181)
Spring is Variable, Rate is 850 to 1250 pounds.
Catalog Free Length not shown; measured 7-1/16" (179mm) on a slightly used one.
Catalog Installed Length: 7.0" (~178mm) (probably is actually slightly less)
Actual Installed Length on Warrior stock shock: 6-5/8" (168mm) in my case.
Catalog Inside Diameter: ~2.4" (61mm). Actual Measured: (59.91mm)
Catalog Outside Diameter not shown; measured ~3.45" (88mm) and 3.43" (86.99mm)

Note1: when this spring arrived it was installed on a stock Warrior shock and was compressed
to 6-5/8" length, and that is 3/8" more compression than the 7" the catalog shows. So when
mounted on the stock Warrior shock this spring's minimum rating is probably somewhat higher
than the advertised 850-pounds. This is an advantage IMO.

Note2: the spring's actual 179mm length may still allow it to be installed on a stock
Warrior shock without using a spring compressor. When I removed it, all tension was off
at the moment before it came loose, and there seemed to be a full thread for re-install.
However it would be smart to have a spring compressor handy in case needed.
