HELP! '98 900RR carb vacuum spring
So I threw a Factory carb kit in it, and it's run like ass ever since. Top end is great! But midrange especially sucks. I want to put the stock springs back in, but unfortunately some friends came over unwanted and unexpected when I was doing this, so I gave them my springs to keep the 'tards busy and off my back. I've only found 3. The 4th is long gone. I went to two local bike salvage yards, and the carbs we opened up didn't have the right springs.
My springs, which I'm 99% sure are bone stock, are 42 coils and rather long (7.75 inches long). These ones we pulled out were 35 and about an inch & a half shorter. And they only opened up a grand total of 3 carbs for me. Lazy bastards. The second place was griping because we walked through their open door at 4:05, and they apparently close at 4. Zero service there.
Does anyone have any extra springs laying around? Or could someone with a '98 or '99 900RR open their carbs up and tell me if they have these long springs or the shorter ones?
If you've got the long version, I'm willing to pay a good amount of money for one. Or pay + give you my Factory springs if your spring works. It's that or go get this thing dyno tuned, and I think that's going to run me a lot of money.
I WILL PAY AND OWE A TON OF GRATITUDE FOR JUST THAT ONE SPRING! PLEASE HELP!
