FORK SPRING LENGTHS
« on: 21 April, 2021, 12:57:18 »
Having successfully removed the forks from my B33, I noticed that one spring appears longer than the other - This cannot be correct and I wonder if anyone could explain the phenomena. I believe the forks are from a B44 inasmuch as they are attached to the top nuts via a metal shaft and a locknut. On another tack (and possibly related) one side, the side with less spring apparent had no oil in it as far as I could ascertain whereas the opposite side unit had plenty of oil!

The B33 springs should be about 11 inches in length.
