Anderson Bike forks very simple, but work so good, no leaks after 4 sets of cells.

That is as with most good "inventions"...keep it simple. Good to hear the Anderson's are holding up so well!

[QUOTE=t-maxed]Thought id let you all know what ive done to mine so far. Start at front and work my way back.
Front wheel spacers are now alloy and correct size to eliminate the sloppy play, helps to calm down the headshake.
5000 wt oil smeared on piston and fork tubes for some damping of sorts. also tighten everything up as were quite loose. Also cut 5mm off each plastic spacer to give a little more travel.
Shimmed up the headstock so there is no up or down play, this also helps with headshake.
Silicon tubing over the crashback spring and tighten bolts a little more on upper frame.
NF steering springs cut down so they are 5mm longer than the std items as i think they are too soft to give a decent response time. Still holds down well in the corners without pushing the front though.
replaced the steering rod end and ball as it was quite sloppy.
Trimmed out the battery tray to allow easier routing of lipo cables.
Rear shock is on the lower holes, with an extra 1mm hole using 3000wt oil, feels really smooth and the rear end now doesnt skip over bumps, just floats really nice.
Layshaft spacers made up to the correct size out of alloy to stop side to side play, and gear mesh set correctly.
New bush for lower shock end to eliminate slop and free play.
All weights remove from giro, still very stable but get more steering response.
Rear wheel shimmed correctly in the gyro
Most screws replced for allen screws.
Oh yeah, and a steering damper too. All these mods have made it an excellent off road bike. I can drive it really hard on gravel, grass and loose/rutted soil no problem at all.
Heres a couple of pics


what size are the spacers in the steering pivot that you used and were did you put them in the gyro

Fitted new alloy swinging arm, looks nice and no flex, with that gyro spinning that fast it twists the plastic one and best of all it looks so cool, anyone fitting the alloy front forks make sure you thread lock the top caps as lost one of mine, but cheap as chips from Steve got to say spares back up is fantastic, bought a new rear tire as the old one is showing some stress good luck tomorrow men hope the weather holds.
