After a 3 1/2 year lay off the TT Rep is close to life again.
The last job is the forks – It is fitted with the Scott ‘kite’ type and the spring is very tired – allowing the front end to sag about 3/4″ without my weight on – makes the bike virtualy suspension free on the road
I want to put some preload on the spring so that she rides high again.
1) I cannot fathom how to remove the spring – the top nut and ‘yoke’ are off but the spring is fitted into a holder that appears to be fixed to the teslescopic centre tube When the spring is compressed with cable ties it will rotate a degree or 2 but will not unscrew – any ideas?- Any pointers appreciated
2) I am sure I am not unique with this problem – is it possible to add preload spacers or does it mean a new spring is required – If it is a new spring then any ideas on who carries them?
