Dave,

Thanks for your response. I understand that from an engineering or mathematical point of view, that what you are saying might well be true. I would not argue your point as I have nothing to go by except the feel and I can report that it now takes less effort to turn the throttle. Will be taking the bike out for a test ride tomorrow and will report back then on how these many changes have worked out (or not!).

Sorry, the shorter the spring the shorter the lever thus creating a stiffer spring.
