Yeah, mine were powder coated silver. Stock ones are horrible. On mine, the first 3 coils were touching, with only the load of the machine and less than 3/4" of preload. Pretty bad! And that was factory, on really nice Fox shocks. Pretty lame setup on good shocks.I believe my springs are RT. At least Ace thinks they could be because they are silver. If memory serves you had ask if they were silver as well. Don't know what rate they are. I like a cushy ride since usually just trail riding rocky and rutted.
I wouldn't be concerned. I clean my covers and clutches a couple times a year, just to see how things are in there. I'm super OCD about maintenance. I've torn crap apart, while home, just for something to do.Probably a lot more than 1000. I just meant with hard riding I've had no problems with my belt.
