Manly? well yes because it's NITRO!
But it does have brakes Stelios, hard to see, but it's similar to my ARX nitro, on the clutchbell. Works very well.

Also hard to see in the video, but it is really quite fast, it would have no trouble beating any onroad nitro bike in those conditions, maybe even as quick when the track is dry. We shall see...

Checking the records JV, Ian did a 24 second lap in my video, only 3 and a smidge seconds more than Ken G's Nitrobike record for a (dry) reverse lap.

So what is the story here JB? Not a single picture of the egyro! Has the weather been pretty ugly over the pond? Is it using the stock flywheel? One thing Im really curious about is how that egyro wires exit the wheel. There is one pic of the thing on the motorrad shop but of course pic is the boring side of the wheel.

I must confess...

Laziness, cold and very wet weather turning the track into a second Glastonbury, not being at home for days at a time and the construction of a new track (with excellent drainage) have got in the way.

I dare not open the wheel up to have a peek (I am a wuss) but I will have to eventually so I can transfer everything into a Race rear wheel (so I can have inserts inside the tyre!).

I might pop out to the garage later and take a few pictures to post, though they will only be of the outsides. As it is, it does look well thought out regards the cable exit.

No worries, Im not calling you out as lazy. 2012 was a bad lazy year for myself. How about we say your just hibernating for the winter instead? Bummer on the wet weather but good news on the new track right? Pics of the outside should hold over until spring and if your feeling really motivated before going back into hibernation, maybe a quick video of the egyro spooling up just to hear it roar.

He's not been out of hibernation long, was spotted dead to the world at Skipton 3 weeks ago, even a blast with the car horns couldn't wake him...

Stumbled across these sticker kits for the M5.

They do look good, I might order a set next week.

I have a question. after having seen my M5 supermoto for 3 month in my living room, I decided to try it.
it's fun, a lot. But I tried to fit the lighter alu gyro, and it seems the bearing hole is not the same as the original.
can anyone confirm? when i put the bearings in place, there is a (slight) space that's not there with the stock gyro
