I have a second hand Rockshox Recon Silver TK (2011 I think). The spring is very soft and I would like to replace it with a stiffer one.

I asked my LBS, who said you couldn't replace the springs on cheaper Rockshox and offered to sell me a new fork. This has made me suspicious.

Is it possible to replace the spring? Are springs still available for this model?

The service manual for SRAM forks is Here.

It has a note on the Recon TK

  1. Use air spring kit to upgrade and change firmness in coil forks

So while it is not possible to get a firmer spring, it is theoretically possible to upgrade the fork to air, if you can find the part for your exact fork model and year.
