    I have to thank Antarius for doing the research in getting the correct spring. This is a great upgrade for the NC and I'm looking forward to being able to adjust my ride height and damping.

    Thanks again!

    Online the Ohlins springs go for around $130, but I think Barry Wressel will sell it to you at $90 or $100. Don't quote me on that, but somewhere in that range.

    The shorter spring won't offer you enough length to properly work. It "worked," but I still had more preload on it than I wanted, to get my sag where I wanted it. The longer, 170mm spring, will work for you much much better.

    To be fair, though, if you tell Racetech what diameter you need, they will get you a spring of any length as well, and in whatever stiffness you need. So that's an option....

    They sold me the spring for $91 plus $25 to ship it to MN. Only downfall is that it's going to take two weeks before I get it. When they sent me my receipt for the payment the invoice had a picture of a nunchuck wielding karate guy. What's up with that?

    KFG RACING stands for "Known Fast Guy" racing - a term used for visiting racers. It's also an acronym for "Kung Fu Grip" and he's a race shop so it works both ways.

    My KFG RACING spring came in today. The smaller one is the stock Aprillia Tuono spring.





    To get the new spring on I had to use the spring compressor from work. I thought that the shocks adjustment rings would just thread out the bottom like my snowmobile shock but it doesn't. The rags are there to protect the paint on the new spring.



    New spring installed. I haven't had a chance to install it yet and not sure if I will get to ride before the snow hits.
