Now I'm going to take the cover off and take pictures for you guys. My end goal is to have more clutch slippage when downshifting, so what rob is saying, does make sense. I will then want to cut the springs further then. Thinking about it, I suppose there are no potential issues to cutting the arms of the springs all the way off. If I left part of the arm, and it was able to rotate around, then I'd be concerned. I don't have time tonight to work on the bike, but I'll get out there Thursday after work and take some pictures.
