Thank you kindly. Question: is there a linear formula for calculating rate increase per fraction of coil cut off for drop? Case in point: Years ago I cut 1 coil off my old FWB FE1 fronts and it did not give desired drop. I cut off another 1/2 coil and it seemed to fall to the street, and kept bottoming out on dips. I ended up with plain 'ol SS coils all around.
On my new FWB I want to retain a little more of the floaty ride, just drop a little. For further reference, the difference between a 20-year old FE1 and 20-year old SS coil is exactly 2" in front. What's my new spring rate cutting exactly 3/4 coil off an FE1 front?
