Springs on order

Alex at Konflict Motorsports is having the new rear springs custom wound in Okahoma, and is pretty confident they'll be finished and here by early August. Whew! The old spring rate was about 120 lbs/inch and Alex has calculated a new rate of 85 lbs/inch. That should soften things up a bit!

In the meantime I've finished stripping the donor bike and decided that I'll definitely be converting to the stock slide carbs. The CV carbs may make a little more power, but the bike was definitely boggy coming out of the tight turns. What I lose off the starting line should be made up for in rideability.

Got my pre entry in for Chehalis, signed up for the Sportsman 500 Intermediate, I'll probably have my hands full of snarling CZ's!

Not much progress for the rest of this week, too many honey do's! Next week I plan to be out in the shop every night, should make a ton of progress, so stay tuned....
What would John Penton do?
