Looking for aftermarket Gen I shock & fork springs

Gents,
I'm looking for a previously enjoyed aftermarket shock and fork springs to fit a 2003 Gen 1. Open to any options. Let me know what you have.

Can't help you on the shock except to say I have one and it's a vast improvement. As for fork springs, I recommend the Traxxion kit... pretty much plug and play with the washers and precut spacers you need, just call them. Optional is the plastic spring guides for I think an extra $20, rather slick. IIRC, the kit is ~$125??
Other fork spring kits just come with perhaps some washers and you have calculate and precut your spacers... spring guides run ~$50 extra.

Thanks, RaYzerman, I'll look into the Traxxion kit.
Just wondering what brand/type of shock you have on your bike?

any gen shock will fit if that helps. a brand new gen 3 shock is sprung stiffer (better) and isn't too pricey> https://www.partzilla.com/product/ya...add883317c2da0

I have a RaceTech G3 with RPA, but lots of good ones out there... on a budget, Hagon. You could talk to Cogent Dynamics in NC... he used to be an Ohlins engineer, has a couple of brands he could recommend, plus I think builds his own.
Gen3 shock for ~$400 or so gets you better springs.... but it's a compromise.
