theRED5, I thought I saw something from the K-Factory website about all the ports on the fuel tank being adjustable. Her's the blurb from their site:

Quote:
The fuel tank has a lower CG than the stock one. It makes the handling much easier. Not only this good feature, it has many adjustable functions, including the adjustable tank lid lever, top inlet & inside inlet. All these three parts are adjustable. You can direct them to the angle you need. There is an inside chamber designed to prevent backpressure tube from being blocked.
Hope this helps. I have a tank on order, was $ 25 shipped from Hong Kong.

NTC3NUT or anyone with Crazy nut heads: Which head is compatible with the Novamega SX12RE 5P-T and Mugen MR12 engines? Can't find it on his site. Will the MT12 head work?

The MT-12 head he has on his site will work with any NovaRossi (or Picco, I guess bolt patterns the same)based .12 engine. You will have to use your original button of course.

Oh, ok....so it doesn't matter if it's a short or long rod engine. There wouldn't be any clearance issues.

No since the "head" is really only a heat sink. You have to use the "button" (which is really the head) that you already have.

I just installed mine and it rocks!!!

Thanks...just ordered a blue MT12 head.....how much taller are the CNR head compared to the standard novarossi head? Will CG be affected? Can't wait to compare temps at Crystal Park. Gotta break-in the engine first.

Default KFactory Tank

I ran the tank today, and it works fine, multiple tankfuls with no fuel evaporation.

The lid is adjustable, the fuel delivery nipple is not.

Bolisario- The head will be taller but it actually weighs less than the stock head does overall so cg can't be affected too much if at all. And any cg difference will be well worth it in the performance gain of that heatsink. Enjoy.

Seems that the factory are testing new materials for the diff and the main gear, according to what I've read the other day on the NTC3 talk at AE website, but don't hold your breath can pass several months until AE decides to lauch the improved parts and much possibly are launched as a rolling improvement (sheeesh! I hate when factory releases new parts with the older part no.).

I have collected some tips, tricks and other info from all the people on the forums and put on the original NTC3 manuals, PM me with your e-mail address and I'll send you a copy.

the tingling sound comes from the ultra lightweight heatsink.

try to shimup .1mm and see if it helps.
