i found that the lower part of the system is different on my .900
3 main differences illustrated with red arrows
so should i just fill the entire lower part with a yellow spring (the entire yellow arrow) ?
- what are the characteristics and purpose of part 6 and how does it hold on the system?
- what are the characteristics and purpose of part 7 and how does it hold on the system?
thanks

it's not different they are identical
you have to unscrew the pin and lengthen the mechanism
I also did my nw .951
now they have a lot of flex
but the back spring back has no flex, but maybe it's better I feel good, then Patrice definitely tested and I think it's good

Same question for the. 900:
How to increase length?
Please Dyuk, could you provide the steps?
Grateful your feedback!
