A strange request indeed exclaim, The colour of the springs is a sort of "spring colour", somewhere between Black and Brown smiley,very difficult to describe,Is one permitted to ask why? J.B.

John,

The piston springs have a certain spring tension depending on application, paste this into your browser: http://sucarb.co.uk/piston-springs.html

The springs in our SU carbs are RED, this information was kindly supplied by George Molyneux a source of excellent information on our rotary's.

The red colour had worn off my springs hence the request for info.

I have owned my Classic from new and the Carb Springs have never been Red,always the colour they are now.albeit,I never had reason to look at them before the year 1999,('cos the bike had been in storage for the previous 10 years smiley)J.B.
