I went on a full landing trip last night and all is good. Also been out on some fast roads and even got up to 60 mph :lol: but evidence of wobble or vibration from the wheels.


Is that meant to mean no evidence of death wobble?

Kirkynut

Yes. Sorry should have been a bit clearer. But then the plastic tubing weighs almost nothing.

I have drilled and tapped the centre of the hub M10 and screwed a bolt in, sealing the thread with loctite, it works a treat. I have done 800 mile since the mod with no side effects and it took me 15 mins to do. just remember to put plenty of grease on the drill and tap if you do the job with hubs in situ to catch cuttings.

Awesome write up Kirkynut. Thanks.

The nuts holding my hubs on don't look like E10 torx, they've got 12 ridges! :unsure:

Can someone tell me what size these are?

I've had a search but can't find if anyone else has already asked so apologies in advance if its already been answered.

Well confused now, talking sockets, torx. Is it an M8 bolt??

Can anyone tell me a procedure for checking the vacuum?
I blew down on pipe, going to hub, and got resistance, but the other just blew freely? Is there a seal somewhere in the vacuum hub which has gone??

Sliding down a steep learning curve.
