Many bikes have simple front suspension, with linear fork springs controlled by simple dampers formed by hollow fork legs which are part filled with oil.

Over time the springs weaken, and this weakening (combined with the views of many riders of japanese bikes that their forks are undersprung from new), means that fitting replacement fork springs after a reasonable mileage is important.

Replacement springs can be either linear or progressive. Linear springs are generally the choice of track/race riders and off-road bikers, where the spring rating is constant and so the handling & roadholding are very predictable.

Progressive fork springs are the normal upgrade choice for most road bikes. When the forks are fully extended, the springs are softer than standard, and the bike rides well over minor bumps. With larger bumps, or diving on braking etc some of the spring coils close up, and the springs become harder (maybe 10% harder than the originals), improving rider comfort and control.
