So, crazy question... I should have done my research prior to ordering.

There is a guy here who is selling his Fullsix Carbon brake lever guard because it won’t fit into woodcraft bars. Is this a true statement? Has anyone managed to get it to fit a woodcraft bar, and if so, how?

I ordered on about a week ago, and now am trying to plan ahead to get this to fit my woodcraft bar. I’m determined to get it to fit, so if no one here has done it I’ll be sure to post a detailed description of what I do.

Alright,.... I can’t even believe I’m typing this, but I have to take advantage of an opportunity.

I’ll be posting the bike for sale in the classifieds section. I’m going to post all Parts at a discounted price for forum members. I’m going to be posting all of these same parts for sale on eBay also.

I’m going to be losing about $5k total on this. I’m over $22k total on all parts, and am going to list everything for around $17k. It’s more than I would get if I sold the bike whole. I’d probably have a hard time getting $15k even when it’s finished.

If anyone is interested in any parts please PM me. I’m going to start posting parts in the classifieds.

I may have posted the classifieds a little premature. I'd like to see if there is interest in the big ticket items (frame, engine, forks, fairings, exhaust, wheels) before parting it out. Otherwise I'll finish it and post it on craigslist, ebay and the 13xforums.

If anyone is interested in the big ticket items let me know.

I know that probably makes no sense at all. But I need an additional $15k to get in on this deal, and Iím not going to make that with all the little parts. The only way Iíll get a decent chunk of change is if I sell the big items, then Iíll feel comfortable selling the little items off as people need them.

So basically if I canít sell the big items Iíll not be able to get in on the deal, and Iíll just finish the bike. If I can sell the big items, then everything goes and Iíll be good to go.

Itís confusing, but itís hard to explain.

I feel like we just went through the same situation lol.

Near completing our builds and then sell the project...never even got to ride them. Life happens man, but good on you for staying true to your priorities.

Ok, so I'm back from my business trip, and it looks like I'm going to just keep moving forward with the build. I'm kinda happy because I really want to see how this beast does on the track. I know its going to need a lot of suspension tuning to get everything right, but thats the fun part!

My fairings, rotors, brake guard, and my seat all came while I was gone.



Honestly, I'm not really happy with the quality and finish of the fairings. I'm going to be sending them a message to see if they can make a proper matte finish set without some of the flaws these have.







I am having a problem that I'm hoping someone could help me out with. I bought a set of Galfer "standard" Wave Rotors, and it seems like something is off between the wheels, the forks, or the rotors.

I have measured the rotors, and they are the correct 15mm offset. Somehow I can't mount the calipers.... The closest I can get them is 1/4" from the proper location, and that's with the caliper pistons fully compressed into the caliper and the pads also fully compressed.

Does anyone know if the Ohlins Forks might have a different caliper mount offset, of if the Marchesini wheels might require a spacer between the rotor and the wheel?

Yup, you need spacers!

I glanced through this thread but didn't see anything on the manufacturer of the fairings. Can you tell me who made them?
