    Rear springs are correct for a trophy. The rest looks like cup dampers and front springs.

    Trophy No.:
    274/500
    Not seen them before - so can't help, but if these are on the front then the springs and dampers are certainly not Trophy spec.

    Picture 1 - This is just the bump stop sleeve that goes over the shock absorber for any rear damper. The Ref number shown is just a stamp.

    Picture 2 - This is the rear "Cup" springs that come standard of the rear or Cup 182's and Trophy's as standard from factory.

    Picture 3 - Blue / Yellow marked springs on the front are 172 Cup springs.

    Picture 4 - "Same as pic 01"

    Picture 5 - "Same as pic 01"


    Damper Part Numbers -
    172 front shocks - 8200681106
    172 rear shocks - 8200662257

    172 cup front shocks - 8200681108
    172 cup rear shocks - 8200681125

    182 front shocks - 8200681119
    182 rear shocks - 8200681128

    182 cup front shocks - 8200681109
    182 cup rear shocks - 8200681125

    172 cup rear dampers and 182 cup rear dampers are the same!
    172 cup front dampers and 182 cup dampers are internally the same, however have diff part numbers due to the hub bolt spacing being different.
    54mm - 172 cup
    60mm - 182 cup

    Nice one, thanks everyone. I worked out the rear springs are correct and I ignored the bump stop one :smiley:

    I have some new 182 Cooksport springs here, which I was thinking of using on the Trophy instead of the RB...but I think I'll stick em on the RB afterall as the Apex springs on that are not nice, far too crashy...plus I have the RB front end mostly apart already.

    I've got new Sachs dampers for the front, just need to decide on the springs. The rear dampers...not sure yet. I'll probably source some Trophy ones.

    Thanks again!

    Trophy rear dampers are now no longer made, produced or available in UK or France.

    Spring wise I have had the Mark Fish full spring kit fitted on my Trophy for 8 years and they are still perfect. The Mark Fish spring kit is good as he has had them rated to work with Sachs dampers and they are not just a generic set of springs.

    Mark Fish also do re-valved Koni rear dampers to match the front Sachs if you cant get genuine rear dampers.
