After what seemed like forever, I finally got enough time to remove my shock and try out the prototype MFR spring mod. This version dropped my rear 3/4" and that is with my adjuster at half way and if I run the adjuster all the way out I can drop it 1 3/8". I really like the look and it makes the rear fender look a lot better without looking too low.


Before height:



New Spring:



New Spring with adjuster all the way out:



Side by side:



L&M spring just for comparrison:

Possibly very soon from MFR. He has a few stock springs waiting to be modded and he was just waiting on me to hurry up and try the first one out. I like the height and still have all the shock adjustment left if I want to do 2 up riding. MFR may want to revise the spring a little more to get more drop, I dont know yet.

This is a modded stock spring and not a whole new spring so the cost is going to be the biggest difference. MFR was trying a new lower cost method to lower the fury besides doing the shock mount mod. Im sure he will chime in sooner or later with all the details.

MFR, what mods do you do to the rear spring? Any pics?
I shaved off 3/16in from each end to get the 3/8in shorter over all. under compression is what got me I was going for 1-1/2" drop. so now the next spring Is going to get 1/4in on each end shaved off

I would bet that would make it really close to the 1 1/2" you are going for.
