Oh, so both fit closest to the sheave. Thought one would go next to the sheave and one in the cup on top.

Why not ones in the cup up top next to the nut to keep it from rubbing there too?
It will only rub on one end, one end should stay stationary. Picture it this way, the sheave under the spring is what is moving toward the other end of the spring and is twisting in the process, so the bottom end is the one that needs to turn on the spring

And you have to have two they are what rub against each other freely two slippery surfaces on each other. Kinda like a bearing

Try that again, I fixed the site. I forgot why I ever put that setting in there to begin with.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention

Decided to order these with the purple secondary spring & 16gr weights. My sheave kit ( gold spring/18gr.) has yet to be installed due to my work schedule. I have added 28" tires & im a bigger guy plus the additional weight from all the accessories I've added.

Definitely curious to see how the purple spring performs with heavy tires. I'll install those washers this week. Been wanting to try out my new socket.

It's a 46mm nut. I bought the 46mm 3/4in socket and a 3/4 to 1/2inch adapter. 46MM (1 13/16") 6PT. Only have a 1/2inch air impact wrench.

Have a spanner wrench that works ok for the back but fronts are a pain I kept hitting the lights and other stuff in there. Just used a big screw driver and a hammer for the fronts.

Todd,

I received Amber's email regarding shipping & approved it! Thanks for the fast service this is my 3rd order from you , and like always ......fast & courteous !!! I have the cam weights that I ordered with the first complete kit from you. Will I need different ones ? It's all still in the box, I just figured I'd order the purple spring & 16gr weights wasn't aware I needed different cam plate slides?

Thanks

You didn't need them but at least you have a new set for now

IT got out the door before I read this.

Thanks,

Put the washers in last night. I hate that secondary bolt. LOL Socket was to big to put the tire rim over and use it. Just had to loosen the nut up with the impact a little then put the tire over and hold it down. It just unscrewed by hand then. Still need to put the bed and stuff back on tonight.

Good info Todd :D I was putting some reflective heat tape on the bottom of the bed anyway. Wanted to see if I could reduce the bed temps a little. It's kind of funny what we do. The day before a big ride, we cook some steaks and cut them in strips. Then put them in the trunk box to heat up. By the end of the day we have some nice warm steak to eat. LOL

ha!!!

Did you get the Power Commander? Reason I ask, it should reduce the temps due to adding some fuel in the lower throttle positions

Yes, it's installed. No more poping on decel and it isn't nearly as hot back there. Just a good warming plate now instead of a cooking plate. The bed doesn't get that hot but inside the trunk box where there is no airflow stays warm. It's really nice to pull out some nice warm dry towels after getting soaked.
