Agreed, very tidy paint job.

Dez, how do you get your name so small and neat?
You use the decal paper?

The names and coca cola stickers were cut for me by a company who do graphics. Nice huh, and not expensive, though he has stopped doing graphics and stuff now and concentrated on his day job instead.

I have the paper and stuff, including some nice graphics that Allen sent me.
Just wanted to make sure I was going to do it correctly.

May have to use a scalpel to get the detail right.

Getting them to stick may be the hard part.
Thanks.

What's the trick to get the rear ride height high on the Fm1-e? I've preloaded with a medium and large spacer but still not as high as yours.

The shock spacers will only alter the spring compression and the amount of sag.To alter the ride height you'll need to move the shock top mounting position or fit a longer shock and use internal spacers on the shaft to adjust its extended length.
Could be wrong,but I seem to remember the TT shock has a spring inside as a spacer.

Yeah, pit shots are fine but gotta have a rider figure for moving shots, looks a little creepy without, like a "Spot the highsided rider" competition

We gonna see at least one of your bikes trackside this year Mark?
