    or by taking it of with the 2 screws you dont bend anything! (not that i didnt initial bend it as well to test and see what it does....) Me vote no bend, just take her off

    its some sort of ignition retarder at wot. take it of as lots of us have done. just unscrew the 2 little bolts on carb and unplug the white(?) conector and put the thing in ur shed then go for a ride. notice it sudddenly likes to rev more!

    Move front brake lever.

    uhm move lever by undoing 2 bolts or muck around with brake fluid, trying to get all the air out etc.... hmmm.. had braided line on my cagiva but apart from loosing some sponge-e-ness couldnt realy say it made braking with 1/2 fingers any better

    Move front brake lever.

    I just moved my front brake lever further towards the LEFT on the bars to try and create more leverage when "2 finger" braking. Havent tried it yet but should be an improvement? I hate having to put all 4 fingers out on the lever. I havent got any handguards on at the moment would this idea clash with the hand guards?

    Rear wheel hopping under heavy braking...

    must say went for 5h ride today and adjusted the rear brake pedal yesterday ( lower in this case) and find i have a lot more precision over the rear brake! like it almost as much as cagiva now! (didnt have any hip/hopping 2day)

    dr650 rear brake question

    after re building my DR i couldnt get the rear wheel to lock up with rear brake. even after bleeding aal the air out. ended up cleaning the DISC with some acetone and roughing up the pretty glazy looking old PADS with some sand paper. works great now

    Rear wheel hopping under heavy braking...

    Anyone with the upgraded rear shock have less probs with rear brake wheel hopping? my 500cc single cagiva canyon had a verry grippy sensitive rear brake but never had anywhere near as many wheel hop problems under hard braking as my Dr. I find it verry anoying!

    The right skid plate....

    just noticed in your signature you have the gafler wave disc with ss line how does that go compared to stock? I dont like having to use my full hand when braking hard. (dont mean to change topic on this thread sorry...)
