This I pulled from a previous post :

Ok here are the measurements I took today:
1) First the 0.8 bar stock spring--------
Spring Length = 7.0 inch
Outer diameter = 2.70 inch
Number of effective coils = 5.5
Wire diameter = 0.196 inch
Installed height in WG = 2.5 inch
Measured spring rate = 22lb/inch
2) Now the 1.0 bar spring----------
Spring Length = 7.25 inch
Outer diameter = 2.70 inch
Number of effective coils = 5.5
Wire diameter = 0.212 inch
Installed height in WG = 2.5 inch
Measured spring rate = 27lb/inch



:I remeasured my spring again and found that it is approximately 7 coils, stands 8 inches tall with no weight and when I placed a 25 lb weight on top it compressed it 1 inch which would suggest that it is a rate of 25lb/in. I am still unsure since these numbers do not seem to correspond to any of "Fredmeisters" test results.
Any other opinions ?
