Default Setup question

Hi Guys,

Looking in the 705 manual, I see it only mentions what the track width for the front should be.
What should the track width at the rear be?

Cheers, Mark.

Mark, the rear track width kind of finds it self. Adjust your rear toe and camber to where you want them to be and that will take care of the track width by itself. With about 2-3 degrees of toe-in and a camber setting of around 3 degrees, the rear track width will be around 198-199 mm. If you go more agressively on the angles, it is possible to go over the 200 mm "legal" width.

Good luck.

serpent stated it was impossible for them to make a 14 tooth gear to fit the cetax.. that is why they went for the drivetrain reduxtion.. would be very interessted if it was actually a 14 tooth.. post a pic too iif possible thanks.

I hope they have managed to make a 14t pinion. It will make life easier for us on our twistier tracks here.

You know the old saying Ammdrew, Everything is possible - you just need to find the solution.

sure you could read salvins post saying it was impossible to machine a 14 tooth gear to fit on the clutch bell.. as having some expierience in machine shop operations , setup and practise, i can understand that there may be some impossabilitys about it, and that is why the old 14 was a one piece clutch bell...

i also think they would of had custom made gears three years ago... i too would be estatic if they came up with one, but i doubt the first place you are going to see it is in a hobby store in texas.......

my guess is the part number you have is 801544 a 14 tooth gear suggested retail 8.40 and made for the clutch shoe system that came with the pro.....
there is also a 17 tooth second gear for the same system.....

That does not make sense at all. Why should a 17 tooth gear cost 17 bux and a 14 cost 8 bux? Isen't it pretty obvious that the price of the 14 tooth needs to be 14 bux? Come on guys, apply some common sense here...

I called Salven and that was a misprint in the website. He agreed with me that a 17 tooth gear will always be about 17 bux. it is a misprint in the catalogue. It is supposed to be 17.51 not 11.75....
