Exhaust springs or know place to buy them?

I had one break for my Banzais. I've been looking online, MMS, Chaparral, ect
I haven't been able to find any 120mm springs.

So I ask, does anyone have a set or know where I can order them?

Thanks,
James

I've been a buyer or seller on over 200 eBay transactions and have never had a problem. Just ordered a Joe Rocket Honda jacket from eBay Canada, and not a single problem there, either. And I'm a pretty picky dude, too.

I knew that was coming, but please stay on topic.

I'm not finding anything on ebay either. I've searched "exhaust spring" "motorcycle exhaust spring" and both with and without "120mm"

Up to 90 mm here: http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...t-springs.aspx

... and it says to not stretch them to more than 20% beyond their free length = 108mm.

However ... 120mm = 4.72" ... That seems excessively long; are you sure?

Seems like 90mm is the longest I'm finding.

Just double checked.
Extrapolator, you were right, I was trying to give myself an extra inch. Thanks for asking me to look again.

Spring free length from inside to inside the hooks 3-15/16 inch (100mm)

From the eyelet to eyelet (mid to can)
Top 4-7/16 (113mm)
bottom 4-5/16 (110mm)

I'm going to keep looking for some 100mm springs so I only have them stretched 10% and 13%. A 90mm would have to stretched well over the 20% to attach them and even at 113mm is 25% of a 90mm spring.

I've found some 100mm ones made by Moose. I know they're one of the top brands for ATV's, anyone have experience with there products?

I subtract an inch. Don't want to scare the ladies away. Plus the ones that aren't scared away by my reduced number will be pleasantly surprised.
