i would guess new valve design, but anything else done?

i dont see the prints/part list on the site.

will they be selling these parts seperatly?

Check the manual, new valve and the striker is much smaller. Basically other than that its the same as any other spyder.

iv'e heard that the inside diameter of the internals is the same as the other spyders, whcih means, a possibility of doing a VS mod to older spyders!

I doubt the balance valve will work in older Spyders due to its length. Older Spyders have the pin that helps keep the valve in place, which would get in the way with the balance valve. There may be another solution though that I've been tinkering with for a while now... ;)

You are correct the the valve roll pin on older spyders would cause a problem with the new valve.

good luck with the tinkering.

I don't see a prob with that since it can be removed, tap the holes and insert allen screws with Loctite and VOILA! A little tinkerers vicarious vision. As long as the top valve pressure hole and the valve screw is in the same place, it could be a go -
