Wirth fork spring set
Manufacturer details: Wirth Federn
It was the Honda CX 500 and its overly soft fork that led to the business being established back in 1980. WIRTH FEDERN was the first company in Germany to supply progressive fork springs and even today is the manufacturer with the most experience. WIRTH now supplies fork springs for virtually any bike. For new models, the development process is so rapid that the progressively stiffer springs can be ready for delivery before the motorcycle is officially launched in Germany. It goes without saying that they all undergo TÜV safety testing. These springs offer quality and value for money. A real improvement for the motorcycle chassis: by bikers for bikers!
German type approval ("ABE)" allows the relevant accessory to be used on the vehicle models listed in the test report. Here it is the type abbreviation and not the maker's designation that is important for identifying the vehicle. The test report must be carried when riding in case it needs to be presented at a road-side check or vehicle safety inspection.
Accessories with type approval do not have to be registered in the vehicle documents! Those who do not want to carry the test report with them all the time can (for example) arrange to have the product registered by the Technical Inspection Association (subject to a charge).
If the accessory is to be used on a vehicle that is not listed in the type approval, an individual component approval is required. Although ABE type approval confirms the proper installation and safety of the product, it is the inspector who has to decide according to his technical expertise whether it is suitable for use on the vehicle.
An electric scooter with "ABE" approval has a type approval for Germany stating that the relevant vehicle satisfies all the relevant requirements of the eKFV (Small Electric Vehicle Ordinance in Germany) for the approval. In addition, insurance of the electric scooter is compulsory and use on pavements is forbidden. It can only be ridden on cycle paths and on the road (if a cycle path is not available). The minimum age for riding an electric scooter is 14 years. Although a driving license and helmet are not mandatory, they are highly recommended. An electric scooter must always be ridden solo.

Wirth fork spring set
There's no disputing the quality and functionality of motorcycle fork springs from Wirth. They've always been top-class. And they still are! Especially the current, polished version. Friction in the telescopic fork legs is virtually zero, so there's also no noise at all, even when you push them to the limit.
When you fit progressive springs from Wirth, your telescopic forks will at last be how you always wanted them to be: The fork is very responsive and becomes stiffer as the load exerted increases, It no longer dives when you brake, and gives you a perfectly smooth ride. Small bumps are smoothed out, and the fork handles hard impacts with ease.
Wirth fork springs are made of polished, surface-densified special steel. They're available for a wide range of motorcycles and tailor-made for each model.

- No more bottoming out, and less brake dive
- So you can forget about annoying rodeo rides like you used to get with your old, linear fork springs.
