Go to the closest 'foam and rubber' retail shop and purchase an offcut of the stiffest closed cell foam that you can get.... and cut your own bumpers. The stiffer ones last a lot longer than the standard bumper.

you can get it direct from Parma

http://www.shopatron.com/product/par...2133.22134.0.0

I've run them on my JRXS and my Type R and they do help protect the front end better

The spring wire size chart
to tell them apart without the little stickers:


10.5lb .045"
12.5lb .047"
15lb .052"
17.5lb .054"
20lb .056"
25lb .060"
30lb .063"
35lb .066"
42.5lb .071"
50lb .072"
60lb .073"


This is from the Team Spoon website.

Is there any fix when the rollers start coming out of the one way?

Default Shock pistons #55, #56

Shock pistons

What is the difference between all the sizes available? #55, #56 and so on. I understand that they allow shock oil to pass. Which one allows more to pass thru? Is it the highest numbered one? Can someone confirm this..

Thanks

The higher # of piston, the smaller the holes

Hello!
I'm looking at jrxs t-r for some time and wonder if it still can keep up with 008 and rdx and tc5? How does it act on outdoor surfaces, not very clean?
Other question is if someone drives it with a123 cells? If they match original place?
