I pretty much try not to modify stock parts if possible.

So I don't know if I'll bend/cut the stock springs .. despite the fact that I have some extras.

Unless I have to I suppose.

Plus .. springs being made from spring-steel .. they often don't take bending without starting microcracks (even with heat) .. which will certainly leave me stranded at sometime.

tried 2 good autoparts stores .. no go.

Might have to try an email chase from a scooter store to see if they'll measure some of their springs for other models.

but .. I DID switch back to an unaltered variator half tonite .. (no notches).

I get 40 to 42 mph top speed .. and I don't need any gravity or wind or aerodynamec assist to get there .. it pulls clean to top.

It also increases RPM a lot ... I'll guess.. modded variator - 5000rpm at 40mph .. unmodded - near 7000rpm at 40mph.

Halfway in between would be nice.

Also .. one weight end cap had broken into pieces.
