ordering now the site recommends using nuova faor inserts, but out of stock is there some in the kit that are suitable or an alternative

You can use the inserts supplied with the kit, they work fine for me.

G2 Ride

Does the G2 ride motor bolt straight in the SB5 or does it require an adator plate? If it requires an adaptor does it come in the esc/motor combo kit?

took sb5 out today for its third battery

bike was good... driving was
have to sort a handling issue.

at constant speed it leans quicker to the right than it does to the left.
i tried playing with wheel alignment. but it had very little effect.
i will check the springs and dampers for binding or different rates.
the only other thing i could think of that would effect it is balance(heavier on the right side??
or a twisted chassis.. will check that as well

any other sugestions??

cheers

Hi, I don't know if the G2 will fit the sb5 but, I know the G2 doesn't come with any sort of adaptor plate. Just comes with the motor/esc, wires and capacitor.

The Mtroniks G2 motor usually comes with a 540 adaptor plate needed to fit the likes of the SB-5 and most other bikes.

Have you swapped the o rings in the steering dampers for better ones?
The standard ones (read rubbish!) tend to make for uneven steering as they drag and don't hold oil in the damper.
I have Associated RC18T silicone o rings in mine and it made a huge difference!
Hopefully this would sort the problem

What you want to check is already very close: If nothing of that helps:
check the steeringservo adjustments on the radio, maybe something there isnt set up properly.

What difference does these positions make to the bike?

The further back the less weight is on the rear wheel when the bike lays on the crashbars. Try starting off with the forward most Position (1).

thanks for the assist

still running stock sb5 orings.
i am not running any oil in the dampers, and i have made sure the orings are lubed so they slide ok.

balance is ok...not perfect, but not much i can do about that

chassis is as straight as i can measure. wheel alignment within 1mm at the front axle, and cant detect any twist

radio(i think you were right edi)
i discovered the futaba 3gr Tx has a trm-st and sbt-st function in the displayed menus.(i thought it only had sbt-st)

i think i may have got the two confused while changing the setup
this would have meant the servo was centered using the normal trim function instead of subtrim.

a little info for those that didnt know the difference.

normal trim will change the centered(neutral) point between the endpoints of the servo horn rotation.
if the servo is trimmed to the left. it will have less rotation to the left than the right, as the endpoints have not moved.

subtrim will move the entire range of the servo.... endpoints included
if the servo is trimmed to the left using subtrim. the rotation left and right from the centered(neutral) point will remain the same

hope this helps someone at some point

cheers
