i bought the racetech springs and and off brand emulator and took them into the shop to get worked on. when they pulled everything apart they showed me 2 little springs ( about the diameter of my bike finger and maybe 2 inchs long) that had gotten smashed up. they were sitting on top of a piece of white plastic and looked like they were suppose to sit inside of it and on top of the part #18 here http://www.bikebandit.com/2001-suzuki-sv650s-sv650sk1/o/m147719#sch270475 i think the plastic part was # 8. i didnt have time to order them right then and their so i just did a quick fix job on the spring stuck it back inside the white thing and set it on top of the small end of #18. so i went and ordered part #14 because it was the only other spring on the diagram and seemed to sit in the exact location of the one i pulled out. but the spring that arrived was WAY bigger than the other one that was in there. so now after all that to my question, anyone who has actually pulled their forks apart and seen this piece did the previous owner besides putting it in the wrong space ( on top of #8 instead of in between #8 and #18) use the wrong spring as well or did i some how get the wrong part?
