I noticed my brake caliper isn't functional at all! I think this is because of the spring provided with the kit is too long and needs to be shortened to gain more travel on the lever. I haven't been able to test this because of a leak in my rear wheel (disassembled) but I will shorten the spring soon.
btw you need a new stainless strip on the brake caliper. brutal force made it bend! Need to check mine!
well thats it ! the tr1kes gone................................... back to RTR for its test. Hopefully according to Paul there should not be any problems. And as an added bonus, I got to Have a quick drive around the streets of Nottingham on trade plates! Did have one scary moment when the throttle stuck, but the kill switch was in reach so not a big disaster. Should have it back and on the road in about 4 weeks-ish. Any sugestions for who to go to for insurance....... Can`t see the big dog doing this one.Forgot to take any pictures when I dropped it off, but RTR currently have 4 tr1kes in the building , so they are going to do a bit of a photo shoot. Heres a pic I took last night in the garage before todays trip.
