Did the Do Broken spring

Have had the kit to do the Doo for a couple months, and almost decided not to do it this spring, because the bike only had 4600 miles. Well I decided I better get it done, and probably a good thing, as the spring WAS broke. Engine is much quieter now. To anyone out there procrastinateing, I suggest you take A look. The engine you save may be your own. Have now done the 22 cent mod, L box mod, thermo-bob and a few others. Bike ran terrible when first bought, but now runs great, its a keeper!! Probably going to ride it awhile this way before, more farkles!!! Now if I can find time to ride it,

Welcome to the forum. What year is the bike and how did you come out with the gaskets? Ride safe.

Sorry, didnt mention the year, bikes an 03. Did replace one of the gaskets, dont remember which one, but had new ones so I replaced questionable one, probably wouldnt have had to. Will mention that the air box mod, 22 cent mod along with rejet really brought this bike to life. Ran like a wounded dog before these, but I think po had jetting screwed up. Now runs clean from idle to redline. Would highly recomend!!!
