Hello Bluecloud,

What happened to all the images, luckily I saved the drive shaft picture and have had two rear shafts machined (1x fat shaft - GT125/200 and 1x Runner/X9) and will set up my ET4 with a semi-hydraulic rear brake.

Great project, what else have you added ?

Yeah, pics got lost in the Photobucket debacle.

Machined, looks good, simpler than my approach. Didn't even occur to me to do it that way.

Why semi-hydraulic? No room for a master on the ET?

Latest mods on the scoot are the pipe and cam. 75 mph no tuck easily on the freeway now.

Hello Bluecloud,

Yeah ET4 had no space for a masterful under under the headset and want to keep the standard lines

I'm also playing with the gearing, as have been gear counting the ET4, Runner, X9 and other sets, then checking Patrick and others shared info to see what is best on the low profile 12" wheels.

I have the Polini primary to go in too. Want it to look OEM+.

Do you happen to still have your OEM mirrors? Mine are both busted and I need to source some replacements.
