When the P94's com gets down in size you will have to cut the brush sides down some. Otherwise you have to much brush wrap.

I had two problems today..

The oneway, the screw that holds the shaft to the outdrive came loose, and locked the CVD out, putting me at max ride height, that sucked. Any way to keep this from happening again? I've never had it happen to me before.

Another, is the CVD rounds off the hex on the same screw, much made it impossible to get out with a hex driver.

I have a XXX S that does not keep planted through turns? Anybody have any ideas on why this happens? Could droop and camber be a factor? I'm also running stock pistons and 60w oil all the way around and pinks up front, and yellows in the rear.

Anybody have any setup for bumpy rough tracks?
