Jimmy I got mine in Oz more than two weeks ago with a tyre fitted. Since they released them they came with everything required.

Hey chktm,
Thanks for that....turns out there was markings, just that they were covered in grease!!
On another note, does anyone know the rough spring rate of the rear spring??......I have installed the DNX408 BB rear shock and Venom spring, but I noticed there is a massive selection of springs available for this shock and got to thinking maybe I can find a similar\harder spring for it. The hardest spring available is 126gf/mm(7.06lb), just wondering how that compares to the Venom Medium rear spring??

Yeah I opened mine up at beginning of the year after last summer session and sandy soil in backyard. All kinds of cr@p came falling out. I put a drop of elmers glue in the extra holes. Might screw with ventilation so not sure if best idea but after all that came out... I honestly dont remember a lot of the processes but its not hard. I do recall some tiny washers I think maybe on the rotor so pay attention. I think somewhere in this forum the bearing sizes might be found but if you do take it apart measure the bearings for me because I think I needed to replace mine. Oh yeah, so once both sides of can are off I took a tooth brush (dry) to clean. Air would be good too after you think you got it out.

MY GYRO FIANLLY CAME!!! HOLY STABILITY!! Haven't got a chance to run it yet but I got it all together and had the gyro running. I could feel the stability just holding it my hand and trying to fight the gyro back and forth.

Couple questions: I notices with the E-Gyro the bike doesn't have as fast of a turning reaction, is this because of the servo having to overcome the extra stability of the gyro?

Also I noticed if I have the battery plugged in but the switch off, the gyro esc still boots and spools up unless the battery is unplugged, is this normal?

Just look at how the battery power is spliced "Y" with that harness. Switch only effects the main esc and everything it controls, so yeah its normal.

With the std servo yes Rellik it doesn't turn as quickly. I have fitted a quicker servo which speeds up steering reactions considerably. I think Dave tried heavier oil in the damper which may be worth a try. Personally I like 30 wt with a faster servo.

Ok thanx guys, I have 30 or 40wt in my damper right now. How much would a new servo be and do you have any preferences on one?

In two of my bikes I use Futaba S9451 servos. These I had left over from buggy racing and are probably overkill as I dial the speed down to 40% to make it drivable. ( too quick std ) . I did buy a Futaba S3305 which seemed pretty good with no adjustments. Lots cheaper those ones. I paid $40 through my LHS. Probably cheaper elsewhere.
