Well, first of all I didnt do anything I helped a friend map his tuned hillracer so he helped me with this.
He just cut them with a grinder and then reshaped them to a flat end heating them with a welder.

Doing big projects like this, its all important to look at funding, the billions that normally goes to the office penholders is now discounted for!

Thanks from bushmechanic and tourist

Hahaha. Excellent.

Funny - when I called around here to find someone who could cut springs for me, everybody just fell silent, seemed quite nervous, and mumbled their way towards goodbye. I felt like a character in a strange modern Brother Grimm fairy tale, like I was asking them to release the town troll from the spring.

Since then I have been taking the same approach as you. Doing nothing. Haha.

Hehehe, its easier on your body and mind, eh!
When I was a young one and needed to lower the volvo 740, I just heated the springs in place and the weight of the car would push them together

Yep, in the Nordics it is like; if you do something stupid you are stupid and have to face the consequences. So if you would spill hot coffee in your lap at McDonalds you would end up with burned crotch, wet pants and looking stupid. That's it.

Hoookay, results are in!

A question for you fellas, I was trying to estimate how much less travel the rear shock needs in order to lower ride height by approx 30mm?
I took measurements on the KTM which is basically the same construction and pushing the bike down 30mm the spring was about 10mm shorter, does that sound right?

Strapped the rear down to get a pic of what the end result will look like, I think it will cut the cake nicely.
White on the ground must be stuff to pick up the oil after I start the bike...

yes it is. the ratio is just slightly less than 3 to 1. so 30mm at the rear would be about 12mm on the stroke of the shock.
