Replacing rear coil springs


You have to remove the struts from the car. Place the struts on a compression tower to relief pressure from spring. Once spring is compressed take of the top bolt on the strut which holds on the strut mount. After strut mount nut is off, loosen the springs tension and replace it with the new coil spring you are planning one using. Tighten the spring with mount back on and tighten bolt. then reinstall on car.

I have a grinding noise coming from what sounds like the left rear side of my 2003 VL1500 but cant see anything that might cause it


  1. Performance
    • Suzuki has introduced slight changes to the Intruder from year to year, such as variations in accessories and styling. The bike's performance, however, has remained steadily the same. The 2004 model has a four-stroke, 1,462 cc engine with a hybrid air and liquid cooling system. The single overhead cam (SOHC) V-Twin motor generates 67 horsepower at 4,800 rpm. It has a 96 mm (3.78 inches) bore, a 101 mm (3.98 inches) stroke and has a compression ration of 8.5:1. The Intruder also has a five-speed transmission.
    Suspension and Brakes
    • An oil-damped, telescopic fork suspension with coil spring comprises the front suspension. A link-type, oil-damped five-way adjustable spring preload makes up the rear suspension. The front brake system uses a dual hydraulic disc, and rear uses a single hydraulic disc.

    Dimensions
    • The motorcycle has an overall length of 99.4 inches, a width of 38 inches, a height of 45.9 inches and a wheelbase of 66.9 inches. The seat sits 27.6 inches off the ground, the bike clears the ground by 5.7 inches and weighs 659 lbs.

I am looking to buy a 2004 GMC Canyon. Can you tell me if the rear leaf springs are to have a nice even bow to them, or do they have more of a wave to them? The bottom large leaf spring on this truck has...


If the spring is bowed down it would provide no load support, only adding height ot the suspension. It's possible the previous owner flipped the springs over to drop the rear of the truck or to soften the suspension a little. Go to a dealership and observe th new trucks. If they all frown, your ok.

Fork Oil for ETV CAPONORD


front and rear. Panniers were full tankbag was full no topbox riding solo. THE BIKE originally shipped 20 weight oil for the forks. That was much to stiff for me. I talked with them and they suggested trying 15 weight and that 10 would probably be too soft. I tried the 15 weight and it was improved but still pretty harsh especially on small bumps. A friend with lots of experience related that he uses Silkolene 2.5 weight in his sport touring bikes (such as his Honda Hurricane and Ducati ST4). I installed 4 weight (actually aircraft hydraulic fluid, previously known to old Beemer riders as Aeroshell 4). I LOVE IT!! Compression damping is just fine. Rebound damping might be a tiny amount too little, but not enough to matter. Even dive under heavy braking is reasonable....much less than with the stock springs. ,It is difficult to get the right oil viscosity for everyone. Typically I ride 2up with wife, 400# plus gear, plus luggage, easily 440-450# total load. Even under those circunstances I may try W15 next time, but for sure not less. The Dutch WP is working with BMW, supplying the shocks and spring for the new K1200 S /R /PowerCup models. WP engineers (like Hyperpro) have designed a retrofit to the Front Springs for the Capo, as well as a rear shock. BTW, by coincidence those front springs are progressive too. They recommend from 5 to 20, depending on the typical bike loading. I suggest a look into the WP website, good stuff there. Here I am pasting some info from WP: ...the progressively wound Pro-Line front fork springs of WP Suspension play a fundamental role in the operation of your front fork. The springing and damping characteristics of your front fork can be fully optimised if the correct springs are used. Many motorcyclists know the problem of too soft front fork springs which can result in bottoming of the front fork when braking or too much movement and poor handling of the front fork during braking and acceleration. Original front fork springs can also be too hard which causes the front fork to shock the steering and the entire bike to feel uncomfortable on uneven road surfaces. With the WP Pro-Line front fork springs you are taking the first step towards optimum road holding at an attractive price. The springs, progressively wound from high-grade silicon chrome spring steel, ensure that your front fork will respond better (improved comfort), and react more controllable when compressed under braking (more stability, resulting in greater safety). In most cases motorcycle manufacturers use linear wound front fork springs which are often in the beginning but also at the end of the stroke, either to soft or to hard. Progressivity is lacking. With progressively wound WP springs you can solve this problem, once and for all. __________________ ,,,
