I think this clutch is made for the CRF Wasp engine, but not sure. The weights look like they're set screws so that you can put a certain amount of weight on the fly weights to further tune the clutch.

Asil,

Only a few of the shock included in the first batch of the 720 had that defect. That was because a rushed assembly of the shocks. We are using this shocks since 1 year already without no problem. We just replace the plastic part and we solve it. Contact your LHS or distributor. He should send you some of this plastic parts free of charge

By the way, allu looks nice....but more weigth on the suspension

Got this from the track. There's an error in the last batch. Go back to your LHS and you'll be helped...

Default weight

what is the ideal weight of the 720 i think mine weight like a tank at 1820g, might be because of all the aluminum that i put in the car

It should be right about on the legal weight limit (1725g), or even a little bit under. Mine's about 20 grams under, and I have most of the serpent aluminum hop ups, except the body mounts. But then I have some very light parts too...

Paolo,

In fact I use RCC shocks for my 710. When you open that lower part for fluid change several times, it's possible to damage that threaded part. For the weight issue you're just right, but you'll be able to change fluid with no fear
BTW, any part # for that part?

I have done some testing with my 720 yesterday and found that the rear end is very loose for me. I have changed the following from default setup, rear shocks 1.hole, rear roll center is on bottom, no roll bar at all. I'm using 40 outer rear and 37 inner rear tyre, fronts are 40. Any suggestions? Perhaps I can use harder front or softer rear tyres but the fronts wear a little more now and it gets not better. Has anyone try 21t side pulley with 720? I think using 22T 2sp side pulley has the same affect with the 21t mid side pulley, any comment?
