Just talked with the guys at the spring company. It seems their manufacturing tolerances are not quite as tight as Chuck's experience. However, we have sorted it out and they are making a new batch of

Yeah, grumble about the bit being too long (but that's better than too short).  However, there's no way I'm sending out any springs that cannot be installed as-is. While I appreciate the offers of hel

While Chuck is thinking about whether to hand-make a batch, I will inquire about a re-order. It's probably not a big deal to order up another 100 or so - and I have a stock of boxes left over for shipping.

Either way, having a spare is a good thing. I don't care if they're $20 each. What is the value of not having to tear the bike down? Of not being stranded in a single gear?

Hello Chuck and Scud, I now have about one year about 4,000 miles on the new spring you provided. Everything continues to work great. If you do another run, I would buy a couple more for the day when I also buy a v11 Lemans in addition to my 2004 V11 Sport Ballabio. Thanks for all your work on this issue. Phil

I have repurposed the tooling to make a couple of Jackal throttle return springs, so I'd have to make everything new. Of course, I *can* but I'm lazy in my old age..

I'll do it if Scud doesn't want to mess with another run, though.

Hi Guys, I know I'm late to the party on this one, but I'd be in for two springs if they become available.  As far as I know, my 2003 LeMans still has the original...  I would like to replace before the inevitable happens,  and would like to have a spare as well.

Looking over this thread I can appreciate all the work that's gone into this, thank you !

I'm way late to this party as well.  (And my eyes are crossed from reading 41 pages!) I was unaware of the spring breakage problem, mine hasn't let go (yet). But I want a spare in any event, so if you have another run made, put me down for one (or two, if need be to get the run started.)

Anyone here also active on Wildguzzi Guzziriders or any other local regional or national clubs? Might be some interest to be generated there.

I put the word out on WG, done. https://wildguzzi.com/forum/index.php?topic=103615.0

Tks for rallying the cause.

Yes, I've spent more time on Wildguzzi than here in the past.  Now that I'm retired and have more leisure time, that should change.  Which begs the question: if a new run of springs is made, what would be the method of notification?  Just have to check back here from time to time?
