Good day, sounder if anyone could assist please. Looking for the valve spring size for the above mentioned model. My scooter has broken a valve spring, would like to replace with a high performance spring set. If measurements are available then would be able to source parts, or any link where I would be able to obtain. Thank you. [/img]

OD is 17.8mm
34.3 height
19.5~19.7 compressed
wire diameter is 2.6mm

I couldn't test the rate because my tools won't work with that size.

stock uses two springs

there is a small amount of area on the base that you might be able to machine for a slightly larger spring, but honestly I wouldn't recommend it.

weight, construction material, design and machining processes: heat treat, stress relief, closer tolerances.

Pozzo,

Have you looked at Indonesian sites like Tokopedia and Bukalapak? The language is almost identical?
