Oh, and whilst we are on track performance, I'm ditching the roller wheelie bar before this weekend. They may be great for pulling long wheelies but when you just want to get the power down and distanced covered... It also helped the bike roll over easier 'can't explain to a conclusory satisfaction.' but the wheel bar induced the bike to sit up and carry on it's pirouettes. The drag bar caught hold of stuff and slowed the bike, getting the front end down again. I shan't test the wheelie bar concept any further. They (Wheeled bars) seem a hindrance to good performance.

Summary. Roller wheelie bars are useless.[/QUOTE]

If you are interested I have the details of someone in UK who has made a mould of the body and mudgard where he is able to produce a GRP body set with a layer of kevlar mat bonded into the tail mudguard section .
I have tried one where you can actually pick up the entire bike by the tail section with no sign of flexing so should be able handle the odd wheelie no problem
He can colour the gel coat in any of the standard Anderson colours
Slightly heaver than original but feels more robust
