Wheelie Bar Mk 4

Well after paying 30 for my second seat and tank unit I thought I would try and make the mother of all wheelie bars !! 3mm piano wire, alloy Rx and body mount. Piano wire slides in to the rear of the mount and then held in with two 4mm grub screws, I have some 4mm wire waiting in the wings but this wont bend will it

Nobita, I would not pack out the shock with those washers as when the shock is fully compressed it will lock out the piston rod, it needs to float up in the cap, you will damage the shock, just fit them as they are as they work fine.

yeah i know arx do one but i reckon one of these would be pretty cool as a nitro,

just out of interest why would converting it to nitro spoil it?
do you mean the extra weight or the added complications (engine tuning etc)?

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.

Rear wheel shimmed correctly in the gyro


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

spence
Hi I want to put some spacers in mine did you get any info
