Have made a few more changes to the bike and will test it out on a track when they dry out in the next week or so. I had a quick squirt on the drive in between rain showers. Unfortunately I ducked my head a bit much as it started to drizzle and lost most of the footage further away so I edited what I had. It didn't feel bad at all, turning much better with less lean angle needed and felt quite similar to my MM to steer. Still got some more changes to make yet ideally but slowly getting better.

Thanks mate, on the smooth stuff at least, still haven't got a BB shock in yet, I'll have to do that before hitting the track maybe. I liked the turning of it now. It didn't feel like a chore to turn, it felt fairly nimble and responsive.

Awesome mate, that looks like it is turning & handling a lot better, it looks good the way it backs it in then flicks the rear around nice & tight & drifts out

Thanks mate, it definitely feels a lot more nimble and responsive in the steering. I like the feel of the turning now. Getting rid of some gyro weight and fitting the rounder SR4 tyre and lifting the rear to change the rake worked out all right .

Bit surprised actually that you havn't found a BB shock for that bike Chris considering how it transformed rear handling on mm. The SR4 rear tire fits like a glove on Phantom rim?

I've got one in pieces at the moment rebuilding it to suit using the original shaft. Just been a bit slow with sorting this bike out. The SR4 tyre fits perfectly and gives room for an insert. The tyre has more compliance than the std one but the compound is still very hard compared to the MMs tyres. ARX tyres may give better performance on the hard dirt on my tracks. Not sure about the lifespan though.

I thought the arx tires were not shaped to include an insert like the sr4...maybe Im thinking because the phantom tire is like the arx? Not sure lol.

I think they are maybe not as rounded as the SR4 but still have room for an insert now I've removed the internal ribs on my rim. I think the compound is softer therefore more suited to finding grip on slicker surfaces. Still not as soft as the MM ones.

Got the big bore in the bike finally and decided to start testing on the rough track. Quite happy with the first hit out. The bike is feeling pretty good on such a rough surface. Using all of the travel the new shock allows, the forks aren't too bad either, maybe a little more work to try. The bike tracks pretty good through the bumps though. Happy enough with progress.
