There is a bevelled washer (looks like a cone, black) that needs to go on the shaft between the brake disk and the bearing on the right rear bulkhead. Did you put this in?

Can someone explain why is it some guys install fuel filter as pressure chamber for the fuel tank? Is it to maintain constant pressure? Or is it to maintain pressure at long fast sweepers? Just wondering...

hey, i dont mean that, let me try again

first, i put the pulley (Black, where the belt goes around) on the 3rd one way adaptor (silver), then i put the clip on to secure the pulley.

but after i secure the pulley, the pulley doesnt seem secure, it can move side ways, about 1mm-1.5mm.

just wondered if anyone has the same experience

thanks in advance

My bro's 3rd one way did the same and we put an oring. I'm not sure exactly what size (I got it from my old stash of parts) but it's enough to fill the gap for no play.

BTW, I don't think it's really needed and the unit works with the little play but we installed the oring anyway just to have it intact.

The pressure chamber provides an extra room for consistent pressure from full to empty tank.

Ah OK. Nope, my pulley is locked solid with the clip on, no movement at all.

Did Serpent ever come out with a conversion kit for the 720 '07??

If so, does anybody have the part number and street price? Is it still available?

Follow the instructions exactly and be patient. You have to screw in the cap slowly and allow for the oil to overflow and bleed. If the rebound isn't the same redo it but put more or less oil in prior to screwing in depending on whether you need more or less rebound.

quick question:

do pre-mounted holes in a 710 body fit the 720?

i am about to buy a custom airbrushed body off a 710, but not sure if the body mount holes will fit directly onto my 720

anyone know?

thanks.

when i bought my 3rd one way set back in april, the shop owner gave me a separate ring (thicker) and specifically told me to install the thicker one instead of the one that came with the set.
he must have known the slight gap with the 3rd-one way set coz he was ready with the thicker o-ring.
