    Yes, Massively.... It comes with 3 springs (takes about a minute to change them) Green spring being the thickest means you need to wind the bike up more producing more pressure to open the powervalve (this spring is great for touque), Yellow spring is thinner than green meaning the powervalve opens under less pressure (good for trail riding), Red sping is like 1 out of a Biro meaning the powervalve would open even under the pressure of a gentle fart, this turns the bike into a mental wheelie wanna kill you bike & this spring I guess would be put in for competition use for a mega expert/pro rider which unfortunately isn't me smiler

    It spins up too much tho, especially when you only wanna chug up hills on the torque.

    Yeah you're right taff there is a bit of that going on. I changed my gearing to smooth out that issue and tend to now be in 3rd gear as opposed to 2nd in a lot of cases.
    It's all about personal taste really and the thing is these 300s can be personalised real easy.

    Agree don't always want mental power, must be a nightmare in technical stuff.

    Still i don't have to worry about that as i got a proper motor in mine ( 4 banger) Snigger
