Hey guys. Just wondering here. I have a set of .95Kg Lindeman Springs for my R6. I was going to install them yesterday until I pulled out the stock spring and saw it was at least 2" shorter then the Lind's. It is very difficult to thread the new preload screw on because I have to compress the spring quite a bit to get the threads started.
Is this typical? These springs are not new, but I know they came out of an R6 the same year as mine.
I was hoping somebody who has done this before could confirm and maybe offer a suggestion of how to compress it and install the preload screw.
