gilles rear sets
« on: 29 April 2014, 01:05:40 PM »


 Put some giles rear sets on last week, went through all the gears on centre stand, did not ride it until bimble on 27th, got to end of my street and found I could not get it past second gear, turns out the centre stand was catching the the back of the gear side, took the stand of and it was fine. any one with the same rear set experienced this? I was thinking a bigger rubber bung might work,

Not had that problem as I have no centre stand fitted. However I did fit a small extension to the side stand kick down part as this was difficult to get to as it was very close to the gear lever.
Some say that he eats habanero chilli peppers dipped in oil of capsaicin for extra bite and that his pyjamas are made from Nomex. All we know is, he's called Ad the Bad

 Yes I have the same trouble with mine kos,  how did you put the extension on, apart from that they are great.

Bit of decent rubber tube does the job.

 the brake feels fine, in fact better than before, did play about with the adjustments, also greased them up. Give it a bit of time, have a play with settings, check they are fitted correctly, ie bolts etc.   ;).
