    Rear shocker question

    Hi all,

    Question... does anyone that has changed the rear shocker  for an improved one have the OLD one? and if so can you measure the internal diameter of the spring.
    I'm contamplating a new heavier spring for my original shock and obviously can't even see the darned thing on the bike to measure the inside diameter :013:

    Oh and if you have an old shock can you measure the spring length with the minimum spring preload please?

    Thanks,

    JT :015:

    Thank you!! :047: :047:

    Have a virtual beer :031:

    That's a small diameter spring! but I've found a UK company that specialises in spring manufacture for bikes, racing, motorsports and the like. dfaulknersprings dot com

    They list the correct diameter spring for the CR but also make springs to custom specs.

    The going rate seems to be around £50 for a made to measure spring so I will look into this over the winter as a quick fix to the weak spring.

    I'll let you know how it goes :038:

    Stay safe,
