I measured mine and they were 5/8"-3/4" shorter than the stock springs. I realize Sean was working on the later 43mm...

    Throttle tube length

    Anyone know the throttle tube length for an 85 model? I did a search but couldn't actually find a definite length. Got a pair of grips I've been looking at and I don't want to do what I did last time and order some that are too short. Appreciate the help.

    Stock swingarm length

    Would someone be kind enough to provide an accurate measurement from a stock swingarm? It would be easiest if it was not mounted. I would like to know the dimension shown in the attached photo.

    Race Tech Spacer length

    OK, got my new Race Tech springs for my 85 Vmax and they are significantly shorter than my factory springs. I had to make 10" long spacers to make up the difference. Is this normal? I got the S3234-100.
