I have a 82 CR480R and need the shock modified. It's 40mm Showa, no comp adjustability, 4 position rebound, 14.75" shock. I'd love to buy a new shock (R/T, Ohlins), but don't want to have to spend more on the shock then I did the bike. I'm looking to race this bike in the post vintage class, I'm 195# expert rider. I have not been able to find any after market springs. This one is a 7.5. I took it to my usual suspension source who didn't really want to mess with it and suggested a new one. I may end up going that route, but I was hoping a revalve and spring could get this one working good for now. Any ideas? The stock spring's inner diameter is 54mm and it's about 263mm long. Anyone have a old XR 200 spring or pre 97 XR 250 spring they can measure for me? They were a 40mm body as well (KYB though) and came with around a 9kg spring (closest I can find to what I need). As long as they are pretty close, I can make some adapters on my lathe, or grind a little off (inner diameter, I think one end is 53mmID?). I'm even considering a KTM spring, but they are a lot wider and would interfere with the air boot. If an older stock XR would work, I'm sure I can find one somewhere and might even be able to adapt the reservoir to get comp adjustment. Raynval@aol.com. Thanks.
