    Check your manual for proper pop-off and see the chart.

    So you want the black 80 gram units. Be sure to test your pop off after installation.

    thats what the chart is indicating. so this kit for mikuni super bn does not come with the correct spring weight that my 1996 slt 780 with super bn needs?
    that doesn't make sense to me. geez loueeze.!

    i have not taken the carbs out yet to know exactly what springs are in there. but im pretty sure thet are silver ones (shinny) from previous carb cleanings. just cleaned them out bout a month ago. they're shiny silver. pop- off was good on them. 21-24 i ordered new needle kits for all 3 so i figured since ive had these springs that are shown in my pics lying around that i might as well use them. is it not wise to cut a spring to size huh?

    the ones in my pics are gold and shiny silver correct

    It's ok to reuse your springs! just check popoff

    Do not cut the springs they rely on spring rate vs travel vs free height vs load. Just get your pop=off right and do no concern yourself with color. LOL.
