Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?


Ok so got the cheapo shock absorbing seat post and the spring bottomed out with my weight while riding and as a result was not that effective.

SO I look up spring companies and found Century Spring Corp. I talked with an engineer there and told him I wanted to replace the spring in the seat with a stronger one. He had me measure a few things ( length, sping wire diameter, and threads per inch) He came up with a few options and gave me the numbers. (2) D1324, (1) D1328, 1 D-1329and (1) D-1330

The springs in the picture are all stronger then my original spring and go from about 30 percent stronger to more then twice as strong. I need to cut down the longer one and the one not shown I put in the seat already ( D-1329). It is about double the strength of the original spring.

I hope it helps. I think it will becasue I could push down on the seat and bottom out the orignial silver/chrome one that came with it. I can not do that with the D-1329. I'll experiment and see which is best!

Hopefully I dont launch myself off the bike
