You have no idea how happy ythis makes me!!

After the spring on the big bike snapped out on me I was at a bit of a dead end about what to do. Well to cut a long story short
D Falkner Springs was able to tell me the spec of the enfuckkered spring from a photo and crude measurements. I was then able to hand over a weg of cash and the very next day I am  blessed with a new Springy Mc Springface.  
Inkjet custom text 50p a go? Why thankyou very much indeed.



£43 +VAT +P&P.
Not very cheap but exceedingly rapid fix to the problem.

A an inch longer and a slightly different internal diameter so I'll have to re-machine some spacers for it. I also got a slightly stronger spring (+10% ish) as it was a bit soggier than I really wanted.

I neglected to mention that the new spring fits the shock much better than the old one What a Face

Neither did I until the option came up.
Then at that point I was a hopeless cause and giggling like a maniac.
