Ive used red derbi springs in a morini which has a similar dimension spring.

yeah.. they are the "lightest" of the bunch too.

treats was out of the red derbi springs, i thought about trying the white ones, but figured they might be too strong for my setup. Im tempted to just buy the variety packs of springs from lowes and see if any of them are strong enough. Its something to do while waiting 3 months for the springs from '77 to arrive.

im so fucking pissed i lost my other blue spring. fuck.

Re: molossi springs on a v1????

I keep hearing about the blue springs breaking, although maybe that's only with serious builds? I plan on using scooter springs.

Re: molossi springs on a v1????

Blue springs are GY6 springs. They will break after 1,000 miles or so. They're made to be used in groupings of three. Crudely using two on a stock clutch will eventually lead to breakage. Buy them on ebay for cheap.

Re: molossi springs on a v1????

^correct. They also work in a qt50. Haven't had any break yet though.

One way to extend the life of the springs is to make sure your shoes are weighted equally and to make sure the clutch body itself isn't warped or starting to 'butterfly' out. Double check everything for quality and balance.

I gave in and purchased a hammer after a couple years of breaking springs. They use GY6 as well. Much more durable and reliable because it uses three springs instead of two.

Also, to ensure maximum longevity of the Blue GY6 springs, make sure you install them with one spring flipped from the other. If you notice, the hooks on the springs aren't equidistant from coil; therefore, by flipping one spring you can equalize the centrifugal forces to the clutch shoes more better...
