Ok,Ya lost me on drilling a hole for the new spring.You shouldn't have to drill anything to put the new lever and spring in.Check this site out for a lot of your answers.Seeing your address there are lots of local klristas out there that will give you a hand.Someone on here posted a tech day soon and I believe it was in range of your area.Good luck

With the new torsion spring you do have to drill the case. It is very easy to do when you see the pics. Go to left coast klrs web site and they have a thread on it. I printed it out when I did my doo at the Petaluma tech day. It really helped alot. I don't remember the URL just do google search.

There are only two kinds of motorcycles: those we need and those we want!

Keep the other springs. You or someone else might want them at some point.
