Title: Rear spring for KTM640
Post by: JoFo on November 15, 2007, 06:14:42 pm
I am doing the west coast route of LDN - CPT in Jan, and the last mod to the bike is the rear spring - by all accounts swapping from the OE 70/260 to a 80/260 is a must.

With riding gear I weigh 100kg's and I should be carrying around 30kg in luggage.

Any comments on the this mod, and where I can get hold of a 80/260 would be much appreciated.

For those interested, reports on our other mods at www.2muppets.com
