Baisley claims 15%=5lb. increase in oil pressure. It seems to work. When they sent me my spring the paperwork advertised a "30% special application spring" available. Baisley performance 5511 N Interstate Portland Ore. 97217 503-289-1251 pn. LMR-002 15% $15.55 delivered.

The lmr 2 is for street use the lmr4 is for drag racing use. The spring is made by latus motors. I buy them by the dozen they go into every kit we sell. The little spring works good toss the stock lifters and add the spring and you are "tick" free for ever.

Hdwrench what is your opinion about the feuling lifters? I used the baisley lmr2 spring with the feuling lifters and it is quiet but feuling only recommends thier lifters with their oil pumps, so now I am second guessing.

Ok I took a few pictures of the install. Use a pin punch to remove pin that retains bypass spring, you can see stock spring inmy hand, you can also see the difference from stock to LMR, next picture is new bypass spring and plunger. Remove plunger and spray out with brake clean or such to remove any dirt from plunger passage. See next post.

SO on to the next steps. Insert plunger first then spring, I use a valve core toll to hold spring down it works great. You can use other items this just happens to be what I use.I start the pin into the hole in cam plate making sure it is not into the passage. Then I compress spring and tap the pin in the rest of the way with spring below pin. Make sure you have spring under spring and not though it. Tap pin until it appears on other side of plate and you are done.

Baisley (LMR-002) Spring Length

My LMR-002 is 44mm long. Can any folks provide an LMR-002 spring length. I'm suspecting I might have an LMR-004. My LMR-002 spring is .060" longer than my stock spring.

LOL!

I don't know, some people like the "rustic" look on their tools!

Not to be confused with rustY!:clap:

I installed new "B" lifters when I did my build along with the Baisley spring but still have an intermittant clatter coming from the front exhaust valve, fine during no load conditions but comes and goes under load at various rpm's. Altho this has been going on for about 7k miles and the bike runs great, just for fun I am going to swap the lifter for the old one that was there before and see what she sounds like. Ghost hunt anyone?

I think to go through all that work I would swap in a new set. I always install new one with a high quality after market lifter as I have had tick here and there. I posted on the lifters that we sell with a life time warranty.

A big THANKS to HD Wrench from myself and all members for that excellent pictorial that answers all questions about the Baisley or Latus spring.

Moderators, this thread is in the right section, it has the right title and it has the right answers with excellent pictures from a VTF sponsor no less, I vote for making it a STICKEY, do I hear a second? Thanks, John

Great job HD... I wish it were a sticky when I was trying to figure out how to do it. I know it will be helpful for those trying to get it done. Sticky vote here.
