    Extra spring in left fork

    Extra spring in left fork
    Quick question, doing my fork seals and tore both sides apart to clean. While doing so, came across the fact that there is an extra little spring on the bottom out rod in the left fork but not the right. Is this suppose to be this way or did someone forget to put all the pieces back in before me. I've searched the forum and on the net but can't find the answers I seek. I ride a 2004 fz6s. Thanks again for the help.

    It's the top out spring. Each fork needs one. You don't have an extra, you're missing one. See the attached drawing (#10, Damping Rod Assembly). In order to replace the spring you have to remove the damping rod from the lower part of the fork.
