Where to get?

A ducati rear shock spring.


I have been working on one for the past few WEEKS and this thing will not strip, we are getting back to bike season so I need to pick one up so the customer can ride while I order some sort of diamond blasting booth.

Me and my Pcoating buddies are stumped by this thing so if you know where I can get one cheap, Pwease post up!

Does it have to be Ducati, or would say a Honda spring work as well?

Does it have a rubber coating on it? I think mine does. When I get home I will pm you an email addy. He is the guy I got the plastic for my bike. He has a lot of extra stuff.
Side note Pm or text me your number again Rick, I do not have it on this phone.

spring rates are different for every bike depending on the linkage, I wouldnt swap between makes/models.

I think I misinterpreted what Fire was asking.

I was more suggesting a different brand to try stuff out on while he gives the other spring back.

Either way, the spring is going to have to come off the Ducati to swap it, so why not ruin an old stock Honda spring with experiments, get the method down, then burn/coat the Ducati spring.

Ive done a few diff springs, there is just something in this one that is blocking the stripping agents.
