I think yours is just messed up. I use RW series and mine is fine with 64p too.

Please read the entire post Cpt. America and RFALLON he said his 007 Xray came like that and he does not know about the other Xray models. Damn officers lol.

But that is just a perk on the side. The higher contact area and the closer mesh allowed are the reasons behind higher efficiency of the 64 pitch.

Xrays don't allow 64 pitch unless you modify your spurs to allow access to the motor screw. Not sure about all of them but 007 is like that. You also need to modify the spur holder if you can't get spurs with six holes.
And yes, I am in the 64 camp.

wrong I run several Xray 007 and have no problems finding 64p Spurs

I run and have over 9 xrays in my family/team and the orginal t2/007 all have no problem running 64p. I only use 64p
4 of my Xrays are 007 ,5 are orginal T2's and all are fast

I know you can find 64 pitch spurs with six holes, and I have realised that Xray sell them (not that I would buy those), but for me (and possibly others) is a futile exercise. I have a plethora of cars that use 64 pitch sprs with 8 holes so it would be just a waste of money to buy special spurs just for the Xray. I am actually contemplating making my own layshaft and spur holder, that is how much I hate these cars "outside the box" where they should just be like everything else. The Avid has the same problem, a spur holder/layshaft design unique that doesn't lend itself to swapping whatever spurs yo have lying around (and I have too many to go back).

I was even looking at using some other make of center pulleys in the Xray becase they would allow me to get closer to the desired FDR range between 3-4 with smaller pinions.
