Heavy duty springs Better?
I am using the stock springs on my factory triples. I see i think riva and factory offer heavy duty springs. What performance gains or how are these better. or are they the same?

One thing for sure they'll make short work of your mitts..!!!
If you don't have the tool for stretching them..!!
Think:... slash-slash slashed to frik..!!!
Pretty sure they're just to locate the pipes into the head collars better..
Oh and tear your hands up good... Believe me..!!
I've only ever used the heavy duty ones myself...

The stock springs (the one's that came with the pipes) will fatigue after being removed/installed many times. The Heavy duty springs help keep the pipes seated up against the Kevlar packing better, ensuring no exhaust leaks. I personally only run the HD springs. There is no performance gain unless you develop an exhaust leak.
Gerry is right when he says to get a spring tool to use for installing/removing.

I bought mine from Riva, but go wherever you can get the best deal....check w/Jerry here at greenhulk and see what he can do. The pipes have rubber o-rings as well as kevlar packing that goes into the exhaust manifold....you can buy it from Riva/FPP or several aftermarket companies....again check w/Jerry too.

I don't know....I haven't bought anything new from them in a while. Since I'm strictly "Old School", most of my purchases are in the secondary market.
