I can recommend the Hyperpro spring. I had a full set (front & rear) on my 2012 TEX  :028:
Not overly expensive new  :002:

When I got my shock rebuilt MCT suspension told me that the oe spring was sufficient for the weigh I would be putting on the bike, when touring around a 22 stone, 140 kg load and to wind the preload up with a pillion around 29 stone with both of us.

I went with quality springs made by Eibach who makes most quality springs for most providers who have there own label and colors applied.
Absolutely transformed my TEX!!

Depends where you are but TW suspension in preston lancashire is spot on and a lot cheaper than the others - he is a race tech that does road bikes as a hobby
