i removed the stiffener to the std counter spring and removed all the weights from the er3 variator. it wouldnt variate. with one weight on each arm and it wouldnt variate. with 2 it will variate but noit fully but the goat has gone away. ill add just enough weight to get it to variate fully and see if it does the goat. ive ordered a zuma spring and some bits to make a better contra set up.
