Konis ordered from shox.com on the 20% promotional deal. I guess everyone ordered so stock in the US was depleted to the point that they had to place another order directly to Koni in Holland. Springs are from Speedparts. They speak English so I emailed them

Cheers!

I've cut up to 3/4 of a coil off stock Aero springs (both manual and auto) as well as a set of Jamex lowering springs. Never felt any difference in ride quality. At all. Naturally there is a change in the effective spring rate, but at 3/4 of a coil, I couldn't perceive the difference.

I'd be very hesitant to cut much more than that.

How would you compare James to intrax? I've only ever heard the word thrown around no pictures or anything to reference
