    All, I recently learned that the stock fork springs of the Stelvio are a .86KG spring rate, which is certainly on the soft side for the "average" rider. I'll be digging further into the valving in a few weeks with Marzocchi USA.
    I have access to Marzocchi 1.0KG springs, and soon will have access to 1.05KG, which I think will be very beneficial to the majority of riders, especially those who wander off paved tarmac.

    Contact me direct for more info/pricing, etc.

    I would love a pair of progressively wound springs for my Stelvio as the front is way too soft! Let me know when you get info on them, I'm in!

    I have three pair of the 1.05 Marzocchi springs in stock, and these will be the last of them until the end of the year. If you're even thinking about a set, contact me ASAP; Todd at GuzziTech.com

    Interesting info re .86 kg. Any idea what the norge springs are?. I had an 8kg on the rear when new, then a ten, still too soft so I had an 11kg made and it was too hard on minimum preload unless riding twisties or pillioning. Only 1 kg different.
    Cheers from Tasmania

    The Norge is also .86KG.

    I'm down to two pair left for the '09-11 Stelvio. These will not fit the '12 Stelvio 45mm USD Marzocchi forks.

    Matris is now offering their F20 full cartridge system with springs for the '12+ model years with 45mm Marzocchi forks; https://www.guzzitech.com/store/product/stelvio-s/ -- I will not sell just springs, as that was a special order batch back in 2012.
