Classic front springs

I suspect that a P O has changed/ messed about with the front springs on my Classic. Is their a way of beefing the front end up. On my Commander I cut the springs down then replaced the removed portion with a alloy billet. Any advice welcome.

Re: Spa

Back from Spa on Monday evening. Some great roads and a great track. A good weekend with some good friends. I'll send a few words with some pictures to the mag editor. If you get a chance to visit the Spar track then it's a must, amazing place.

Re: spark plugs

Hi J B You aren't the only one to suffer dodgy plugs. The Wiz team lost a plug in the 4 hour race. On first inspection at it looked ok, but then they saw that a small crack in the porcelain. Lost an hour spotting this.

II brought a new steering lock for my bike, but can someone tell me how it works? Getting the old one out is simple but replacing it results in just filling the hole !! Mick. A puzzled Classic Owner
