help with spring seat

Recommended Posts

I've got another GSXR spring that is a little higher rate than the one currently on my stock FZ07 shock. I think it may give me a good compromise in around town ride and harder cornering. I need to have the new seat be at 58mm id and 80mm od. I  measured the seat thickness at 3 mm. I've tried local machine shops for this job but no one is interested in turning one out for me. I also wonder if an industrial plastic like UHMW would work. Can anyone give me a hand?

Lucked out and found a bike shop which cut me a spring seat.Hats off to Porzio Performance in Columbus Ga. for helping me out. The seat they machined was for a Race Tech 5815 series spring which does not match the FZ spring in any dimension. It's 22mm shorter and off at the spring keeper end too.I hope I've got a keeper from another shock that will work or else its back to the shop for some more lathe time. The GSXR spring I mentioned was one I picked up off Ebay and turns out to be way too long and large in od so back to the drawing board.
