Lo Pro Help

Hi all -- the Lo Pro on my 91 rg 550 is not coming back to "the zero point". If I dive and come back up Im flat and if I pull up on the trem it comes back down but stays sharp.

Springs? Spring Placement? Im using elixer 9-42 and the trem springs are in the "triangle shape" Not enough tension?

I have OFR lying around, is that a big route hassle to install that on the RG?

Re: Lo Pro Help

It seems that applies to later models? mine is a 1991. Instructions for pulling the trem and sharpening the knife edges ?

Re: Lo Pro Help

you have to change them for new one's
to remove the trem: remove the springs without touching the claw.
it will come out. remove the stud, buy new one from rich.

and for the knife edges, ask Rich!!

Re: Lo Pro Help

Why do the knife edges need to be replaced? It probably needs some chap stick, or at most a bit of a file.
