:D Done it at last, 2 days of sweat n blood :? then all it took was 10 minutes with a bit of help from british gas and a block of wood.

I ended up leaving it on the cooker for about 10 minutes then smacking it onto a block of wood and hey presto out it popped :D
now I have to trim it down in time for now bearing arrival.

Nice job there mate, looks the biz! :wink:

It'll be a shame to hide it behind the big daft standard can though :(

Did you go away from the standard shock while you were at it? If so, what did you use?
To a Raptor....EVERYTHING else is just prey !!

WOOHOO!...TWINS!

Hi Weirdo, I used the standard Raptor Shock with new triangles made from Kev's template he sent me,
they move the shock away from the swingarm so no grinding was needed.

Just been out on it for the first time and it feels great, just need to soften shock as it on hardest at the mo (ideal for standard swingarm as it stopped it bottoming out) it's too hard for rsv swingarm, I need a bit more travel.

Hi does anyone have a copy or the template of the triangles.

Plus can anyone direct me to a guide for this process. ie fitting the rsv swinger.

Many thanks
Mark
