How many miles on the LeMans, Tom?

ODO is km now but converting prior miles I come up with total of 25,906 miles.  Very likely the 2nd pawl spring but have no way of knowing for sure.

Hard rain in Norway all this weekend, how about Sweden? Have you installed the new spring?

I have plans to replace the spring myself... I have so many plansemoji6.png

Done now.

Relatively "easy" following the excellent write-ups in this thread, Phils and belfastguzzis.
Also helping is adhering to "RULE NUMBER ONE OF V11 TINKERING":
"Thou shalt always remove any and all parts from thine V11, even the parts thou thinks must not be removed, for they shalt need to be removed anyways, sooner or later, to get to the part upon which thy desire to tinker":oldgit:

The old spring looked OK (but it isn't. See Chucks reply below.), but more compressed than the new one.
Road test report to follow once the weather clears.

The old spring is not OK. :oldgit: It has already taken a "set" from over travel, and will break sooner of later.. your number one rule on tinkering is spot on, however. :grin:

My box was quite good before, with just the occational return binding, but felt even better during a quick 10km round the block. Crisp shifting and no binding.

Add another happy customer to the list.:D

Chuck, do you or Scud still have any of the new shift springs available?  I keep one of the old style in my tool kit just in case my original decides to break.  It's always on my mind everytime I take the bike out and have decided to just go ahead and change the old one out while in my garage and not leaned over on some roadside in 90° heat.
