Keihin slide return spring

Postby bikerpete » Thu May 31, 2018 10:02 pm

I've just moved onto a Sherco with Keihin PWK carb, from a GasGas with Dellorto.
I'm finding the throttle very light on the Sherco and a bit easy to wind on too far!

Does anyone know if there is a stiffer spring available? Or perhaps a spring that could be coerced to fit? I've had a search but not found anything that mentions being stiffer.

In reality I probably just need to get used to it, but I reckon I'll scare myself less with a throttle more suited to a heavy-handed user.

thicker diameter OKO throttle spring is used in this situation. We'll have some back in stock mid to late July
