You can use some of mine I've ended up with more than 10 when I thought about it.  :112: :062: :300:

Can you tell me how do you feel Hyperpro progressive springs?
I have to decide what kind of springs to mount, Hyperpro, mhlins or Mupo.
And have you used a particular oil in the fork?

I recommend the Hyperpro  :046:
The standard springs are too soft and the front just squishes under your weight. I think its set up for a 60kg rider.
With the Hyperpro kit you get a bottle of oil, it is the same as in the Honda manual for this bike and we used that. The damping is OK but sometimes I think we could have used the next grade up in viscosity. But its still a CBF and not a FireBlade.
The fitting instructions tell you to set the air gap smaller than standard. I think this makes all the difference.

Just a tangential thought, but Honda springs are actually not bad IMHO, but the fork oil is frequently left unchanged (the manual doesn’t mention a changing schedule). It made a huge difference to my Mk1 when I simply replaced the 4yr old oil (standard grade). It’s worth trying - it might save a heap of money.
