I'm in on that statement, if it comes molded on a parts tree, it isn't my piston

Thanks... will use the stock springs for the moment... thnx

About the springs... what are the spring rates of ALEX? any charts available?

look on page 21 of your R2 manual...it will have the spring charts in metric(it`s the middle chart) it will have 1.3,1.4&1.5 listed on it

Good luck at figuring out what the heck that chart means though But it does give you a good idea of how stiff the springs are.

well I did a cobversion for the alex spring rates from metric to standard a bunch of pages back.... ..so if you do a search on thsi thread or the other one you will find them..

I mailed the list of Spring conversions to Steve @ Speed tech but they were never updated on the ALEX USA site

Steve seems to be a very busy person, gotta get on him about updating the Alex USA site.. Or if he wanted me to, I could always do it for him.

Anyone for starting a "Helpful tips and hints for your Cuda" thread. Sure will make the Evo and SD folks complain

I think the guys in the other threads would start sending us mail bombs if we started another R2 thread

Maybe just devote one of our threads to tips and tricks, and the other to R2 chat.
