Old thread, probably should have started your own. Got pics?

Hi, where did you get the spring from? I've tried emailing zelioni's distributor to no avail. Thanks

Today I installed the 70 lb/in springs received from Zelioni for $65 ($30 product, $35 shipping) to replace its normal USA/Europe 90 lb/in spring. In the process I learned a lot. Upon disassembling the spring from the shock I made some measurements that surprised me. Modern high end shocks use pressurized nitrogen, duh. In the Zellioni this gas pressure results in a roughly 27.5 lb/in spring rate, by my measurements, for the shock without any spring! So in reality, the stock USA Zelioni spring rate is 117 lb/in and my new 70 lb/in spring really results in a actual spring rate of 97.5 lbs/in which is about 17% lighter than the original rate, rather than the 22% expected if only considering spring rate. At any rate, had I realized this bit I would have ordered the 65lb/in springs, but that is a small difference. Check out the pics and come back to read my driving assessment in a few days. There is a post here that describes the importance of the nitrogen pressure parameter: http://www.rzrforums.net/suspension/10042-check-your-nitrogen-level-shocks-here-how.html

Hello Jeff,
Sorry I never saw your post until now. I had not looked at this thread for years.
Looking through it I am surprised to find I did not list the contact where I was able to get the accessory springs. Perhaps he did not want me to give his information or never replied to me about the issue. Too long ago, so I forget now.

I will give you the email here but who knows whether it is still good being 7 years old. The fellow that helped me with the spring order was Yuyee Chang <zelioni>

Post is you have found another solution.

Hmmm,
Let's try that email again. Seems to be actively suppressed for some reason?

...I find the Zelioni front shock to be too stiff in spite of its advertised adjustability, but the rear shocks are ideal. ...
Daahling has combination of the BGM shock at the front and Zelionis at the rear on his Tomato. I would say the winning combination for the drivers of the weight around 75-80 kg.

I needed the Bazooka rear shocks for me and they work just fine for my body shape
