Re: sprague springs made

I cut 20mm off the factory spring and had much improved GRAB
since my eyes have trouble redoing the stock spring, i use a spring from a 40mm fork seal. after that, i just replace the inner freewheel. (in the process as we speak).

I'm having concerns though over two freewheels - brand new - that i have sold in the past 2 months, more of which in another thread i'll start soon enough. I have an engine coming back in destroyed and the problem (he says) is the freewheel losing some teeth and then jumping into the timing chain.

this happened to another customer last week, two teeth off the freewheel. cam timing changed = luckily that was all. i built the former and not the latter so, right now i have no proof of anything. both have had the torque limiter done though and one has the new spring and one the old way (shortening).

If it's confirmed, I will start a thread on 'Freewheel (teeth) problems'.

Re: sprague springs made

the young lad down dorset way had my spring in while the sidecarcross bloke didn't. i'm pretty sure the spring has little to do with it - infact i'm certain.

had a word with graham at mid-west today and he said that it was well known to be riders hitting the starter button as they were riding. mmm?

I think it's fantastic that you're offering this Taffy!
I cut 20mm from my stock spring and it's been working real well. It will however, slip if the outdoor temps are freezing the first couple of tries. I'll keep your kit in mind for the next time I have my side case off to repair weep hole leakage.

What comes in the kit, how is it an improvement over stock, and what is the cost? Thanks.

this has nothing to do with the SRK. this is now off subject.
