Lol, thanks Mr. BotRear shocks consist of two telescopic tubes which slide into each other, a spring of some type and an eye at either end through which the whole mechanism is affixed to the frame. A small bushing (a type of simple bearing) in each eye enables the shock to pivot smoothly when the suspension is active.
You want to verify the springs are the same on the fury vs the sabre, I don't think they are? Edit: you said the sabre spring is longer.That's what I need to know how tall or long the fury spring is . The stock fury spring is still on my bike but I have a sabre spring that I'm going to cut to lower the fury but the sabre spring is longer then the fury spring. So may be if someone has a lowering spring they can message that would probably be better for me to c how I need to cut the sabre spring
The pic that @4gdbyiron posted appears to show the spring is a progressive coil design. When you say you cut 1 1/4 coil off, are you cutting the coils that are further apart, or those that are closer?I have cut 25/30 of these springs for members on this forum. I take off 1 1/4 coil with the same cut as the factory does. Never thought to measure it after cutting.
