Probably should have the fork fluid changed and install a new set of springs this should do it..and if you are going to put air into the shocks through the air fittings, be very careful if using a gas station hose, it'll blow your seals out.. it has to be just a real quick squirt of air, then take a tire gauge and measure, should be between 3-6psi..most racers though don't put any air in at all, but this is just personnel preference. they put in stiffer springs! this keeps the racer from bottoming out the forks in a tight turn which causes the bike to try and stand back up! Physics!
Can you rate this Thanks. I haven't got a rating in awhile and i've posted quite a bit..we a fix ya just love to hear positive feedback!

Are you looking for standard springs or harder after market?

If standard just head down to your local dealer.

If after market - that would depend on what country you are in.

I have a 1987 cbr 600r Hurricane and i need to know how much air to put in the front forks?

The front forks are adjustable to the type of ride you want. First, set the rear shock to the setting you want soft, medium, or hard. There should be max pressure information in your owners manual and on a sticker on the front forks. Typically the most pressure that can usually be put into a Honda front fork is around 14 PSI. Add, carefully, 10-12 PSI using a hand or foot bicycle pump with a gauge on it. You will probably find this way too stiff. Be careful not to put too much pressure in the forks or you will pop the seals and have to replace them.Then with the bike loaded the way you are going to ride (soft for comfort or hard for two up riding) bounce on the seat. What you want to feel is the front and back suspension dropping at the same time. This is how racers set up there motorcycles for hard cornering. If both the front and rear of the cycle drop together you have an easier time controlling the bike during extreme maneuvers. Since the front is usually stiffer than the back(you added pressure there) slowly bleed the pressure out of the front fork tubes until the the front and back drop together while you are bouncing with the bike loaded the way you are going to ride. Now you are set up for extreme riding conditions. Soft or hard that is how you set up all motorcycle suspensions by balancing the the amount of front cushion/pressure to match the back cushion/pressure.

Do you have the front and rear suspension settings for a c1 model 1998 kawasaki zx9r i'm 6 foot and 15 stone if that helps..

To set up your suspension correctly you need only adjust the front and back suspension to drop at the same time when you bounce on the seat ( fully loaded if touring or two up). Set the back hard or soft, your preference. Then adjust the fork pressure to the match the back. (or adjust the back to match the front if you do not have air forks) So when all the weight of the bike goes into a corner the front and back drop together. This will help prevent the front or back washing out first on a corner.

I have a 2003 kx 85 , It has pro tech suspension , front fork seals are leaking , would stock fork seals fit this protech suspension? How hard would this be to do myself? Ive done lots of other work on...

Stock fork seals will work but if I were you, I woudl take it to someone who has the correct tools take your fork seals out without gouging the fork leg. If your seals are leaking then chances are you're also low in fluid. Your fluid level is what decides how hard or soft your front end is (In addition to fork spring rate).

fork psi should'nt exceed 9psi. fork air valves are best used for removing air. spring preload should be adjusted to abtain the correct sag (1'' on most street bikes)

Its okay. For as long as you're not revving the bike on its redline for too long. CBR, XJR and other inline engines love high RPMS. They're built for it.
