    Hi
    My shock appears to have a yellow spring instead of blue, any thoughts?

    I understood that the yellow spring was for the Rally Raid.

    When I got my Capo it had a blue spring and the PO gave me a yellow spring that he claimed was a RR one.

    Measure the number of coils and wire diameter of each spring. If the raid spring is stronger, it'll have either more coils, larger diameter wire, or both.

    In a similar vein...
    The cans on the bike say 'racing'. Is this standard, as they're pretty quiet?
    I've read they can be 'cored' .
