    Link/ dogbone spacers

    There is a chap in holland that has had a batch of spacers made for the rsv dogbone link plate interface to keep your bearings cleaner and prevent rubbing. If anyone wants a set let me know and i'll ask him for more details.

    You get 4 to use and 2 spares for 10 euro's

    I would be carefull with changing the interferance gap between the linkage plates , I know from servicing customers bikes & my own , they do move to one side & can rub the side plate but if regular service is done this can be kept in check ... Been an Engineer for 35ys I know about tolerances & why it has been designed to be there... reducing this from the designed spec may increase the resistance drag of the linkage unit & put more stress onto the side plate or the other parts which they aren't ment to . These may be a excellent idea ... but I'm just pointing out the safety aspect of changing stuff as I care for all bike riders & their family's .

    Good point, ..... BUT why design something with such a large movement.....after all we are talking up to 5 mm here :S

    I know there is afair amount of movement between the sides but this in my veiw is more than likely to allow the Dogbone link enough room to freely move & not bind up through its modulation stroke , I guess if people want to use them then use them ..

    Good point and the manufacturer thought of that.

    The free space is there to allow for mass production tolerances and flex during the compression stroke to prevent binding.

    The spacers are 1.7mm in width which is less than the free space to prevent a binding situation. It's impossible to clamp up tight on the spacers because the pivot pin is wider than the dogbone/spacers together.

    These spacers sold out double quick and i only managed to get 4 sets so i can only do 1 set each if you still want them. Sorry. There may be another run down the line but it was non profit so depends if the guys want the hassle again.

    In answer to the post 04 bikes question apparantly loads of later bike owners have purchased them and no one has reported any issues.

    Pm me with your address etc if you are still wanting them.

    I've had them for 4 years on my bike, no probs so far...
    They DO keep the crap out of the bearings, deffo.
    They do not fit tight enough so as to interfere with radial movement, they just reduce the lateral 'slop'
    Mine were made up in the US buy kzmille...(he's the guy who posted the best rear brake bleed thread ever...)
