Any advice? The instructions suck. The Bitubo spring looks really scrawny, but looks don't mean a damn thing, and the Bitubo is light, maybe I shoudl just dial in more preload being a fat old turd. Anybody know what the rating of the spring on a Bitubo for a TLR is, or how I can tell? I saw a really nice titanium rear spring the other day (drool). The Bitubo spring goes where the stock one does on a TLR, same linkage, so it should be about the same rate & preload we use on the stock spring-on-a-stick I'd imagine.

I did. I didn't. But I did find some pics. Still don't know where any washers or shims go on the linkage.

The resevoir bracket is supposed to be mounted with the top mount to act as a shim on the TLS. Dont know if there similar. I gave up trying to get it like that and have my local machine shop make me a perfectly sized washer for the top mount. I then mounted the resevoir on the frame of the bike.
