anyone have pictures of how your receivers are mounted? do you guys even use the receiver cover? i have my receiver mounted but there's no way the cover will go on without a visit from my dremel.

I use mine in the longer and most outer position. I gives more steering.

how are you guys getting the gears on the brake pulley one way. i can get everything together but i cant see the e-clip groove. the stock shaft measures 14.88mm from the pin hole to the e-clip groove and the one way shaft measures 13.83mm from the pin hole to the e-clip groove. do i have a bad shaft , or am i missing something?

Nope, the brass front plate is to add on weight and gives u more steering and reduces steering oversnap corner entry. The carbon stiffener works otherwise.

nope they both stiffen the front the brass adds more weight than the carbon plate but they both stiffen the front..hence the need to screw in the plate, if it didn't add to the stiffness then they would have not allowed you to add the plate brass or carbon. GET IT> GOOD

Oh yes I got you good my fren... It's obvious both brass and carbon stiffens the LCG plate but only with different effects as I stressed. Without both will definitely flexes the chasis more but u tend to lose consistencies as the corner entry is always unpredictable.

Thanks... you like rossi too. He's in Malaysia for testing at Sepang track since yesterday and top the timesheets at 2'00.300 a sec faster than any other riders. Looks like his new pneumatic valve M1 engine helps.

Cheers,

Hands down Vale but then comes Nicky remember he's riding a bike designed around little Pedrosa the bike ain't made for him but he is the only one who is developing the bike like Rossi used to do when he rode for Honda. Pedrosa can give enough feed back on the bike so they can know which direction it needs to go.
