Hi!

Can anyone tell from just this photo if I've got a Stoffi spring installed?

Maybe. Looks like it, but not 💯 %. It's too rigid. Replace with SIP uprated spring.

I'm about to finally get the SIP shock and for all I've read the Stoffi seems to be too stiff.

Could I also change the spring at a later stage?

sure, you could change later. . . .but that spring is too stiff. pay the $46.10 for a spring that will be much more pleasant.

In the process of changing my spring as you recommend before the shock.

I replaced my standard setup on my VNA with stoffi spring and BGM damper, worked superb, didn't dive under braking anymore.

That's my current setup and works quite well when it comes to diving. However, I find it too hard and unpleasant when hitting potholes, bumps or riding on uneven surfaces…

I want to go for something softer.

Do you ride your BGM on its hardest setting?

No, never found it unpleasant. Can't remember what setting I had it on, I haven't had this scooter for over 1 yr now... Have you had a play around with the BGM damper to see what setting is best for you?

I have but not much difference. Here is a photo so you can see how compressed it is.
