Front Master Cylinder Spring R1100GS, Where can I find one?

Hello ADV.
Recently purchased and installed master cylinder rebuild kit from Beemer Boneyard. Unlike the local BMW shop, they sell their rebuild kit without a new spring. Not happy with the snap back of the front brake lever. Is a new spring of equal or slighty greater strengh available available from anyone/ anywhere?

Have you replaced the long seal on the pin that secures the brake lever ?.

Old ones can cause the lever to "slow" up on it's return, if you've re-used the old one get a new one and it should make get the lever return back to normal.
