How many spring leafs should a speedster have?
Remove one or two short ones? My front seems fine, the rear spring just seems stiff and just hates any little bump.
I always removed the first and third leaves from the rear spring for a speedster.
I got my speedster running yet but I noticed this thread, here is a pic of my rear end. Do you guys think it might be too hard riding like this?
Whoops I meant I "haven't" got it running yet....
Thank you Aaron! I will remove 1 and 3. Looking for a softer ride!!!
Michael, along with softer ride will come bouncier ride. You may find this more disconcerting than the bumpy ride you have. I know I did, and reverted to just one leaf removed.
Your experience may vary.

Kevin, have U checked your rear seals? The new outside seals worked good for me.
Don't remove any. Your softer ride will result in the spring bottoming out and excessive rear end hop, especially if you hit a bump during braking or cornering. Nearly got in a bad accident due to this.
Hal I haven't checked the rear seals although I took the right rear wheel off yesterday, someone pointed out the axle key is pushed up against the seal damaging it but its not leaking at all. What are the new type you refer to?
