Doohickey '08?

I plan on getting a 08 KLR shortly, is the doohickey any better? Or, is it still junk? Thanks.

From what I've read and seen in pictures the "Doo" is better but the springs are still weak and too long. Think DXKLR had a good link with pics I used.

+1 Just change the doo with eagle mikes doo and spring and not worry anymore. I ran into a minor problem and called Mike and he immediately callled me back and walked me through it. How's that for product support. Dxklr is also a great source of info on this site.

IS there a difference in the springs used?? I have seen both normal looking springs and ones called torsion springs used in the Doohickey kits. Is one type better than the other??

The coil springs that come with the kit are very good but the torsion spring that you have to buy extra is the best for long term functioning.
