Settings for the Stock Suspension can be found at Sportrider.com for both the SP1 and SP2. Change in springs wouldn't be considered an upgrade I'm not sure a color change means anything changed with the spring spec, the upgrade came from an modification to increase the swingarm flex to enhance traction on the SP2.
