Our WP Air to spring conversion kit is a complete replacement cartridge assembly for your current WP AER setup.  It is designed to completely remove all the Air system from your current WP AER 48 fork  and replace it with a preload adjustable spring and cartridge setup.  High Quality German Engineered ‘Eibach’ Springs are available to suit varying rider weights.  Please advise upon order which spring you require (see recommendations below) or let us know your weight and speed  and we will recommend the best spring for you.  

This kit fit's in minutes.  If you can pull down and service your fork seals on the WP AER 48 fork you can install this kit. Info and instruction included.

General riding & Motocross applications

These recommendations  are a guide only as fork Springs are weight and speed dependent. For example a 72 kg Pro rider falls into the 0.88kg/mm category but may well be better suited to a 0.92kg spring due to the much higher corner entry speed and the ability to hit large bumps at high speeds. Please note this guide is for rider weight ‘without’ gear.

Please note we have had great results using one spring down for Veteran/ C level riders on the 450 machines.  Eg. 90kg rider running a 0.96kg/mm spring for a plusher ride.

For more accurate advice please consult your local suspension tech or send us an email.

 Rider weight Spring Recommendation ( Pro Level riders may consider one rate harder than recommended due to the faster speed and need for 'hold up')
