I don't think ANYONE will keep up with you. eMoto must be thinking of starting an Oz outlet just to service your needs!Aussie MV said:Very nice John, keeping up with the Jones's eh.. :laughing: So whats next, you have the bug now.

I don't know what's next - although the seats will be high up on the list. Any recommendations?
BTW - how was the ride today? Are you going to post a ride report?
Unfortunatley 44 degrees celsius and it goes as high as 48 and stays there.mvcorse said:The hugger looks great. I ordered the "new style" like the on the F4's that does not include a chain guard and is slightly longer than yours. Quite honestly I like yours better, good choice.
44 degrees! That is toasty. Is that a sweaty high humidity Orlando, Florida 44 celsius or a nice dry 44 like the desert southwest USA?
most excellentSventekoz said:Here's what I've spent the last couple of hours doing. All that's left now is to have the PC-III fitted, which I'll leave for the experts.
BTW - I hadn't yet washed the bike when I took these!
After the old chain guard was removed:
Thanks! I haven't tested the damper yet, so I can't really say. In terms of deciding between the two, if they both achieve the same outcome then I'd go for the Matris just because it looks so good!Baylissrules said:Very good job,the rear hugger looks good,Do you try the steering damper?It works?I need one,I'm deciding between the Matris and the rotative Ohlins.
Ahhh - that's nothin'. It's hotter in my oven...Aussie MV said:Unfortunatley 44 degrees celsius and it goes as high as 48 and stays there.
Thanks Greg! BTW - what setting do you have your Matris on (and anyone else for that matter)? I've set mine to 9 for the moment. I haven't tested it out at all, but it doesn't seem to do much at that setting...spalding12 said:most excellent
the rear CF hugger is gorgeous
i have NO idea why i haven't ordered one yet
the Matris is fantastic...
looks great, and you will LOVE how it works
funny you should askSventekoz said:Thanks Greg! BTW - what setting do you have your Matris on (and anyone else for that matter)? I've set mine to 9 for the moment. I haven't tested it out at all, but it doesn't seem to do much at that setting...
It's probably something to do with the speed sensitivity - easy to move at low speed, very difficult at high speed (the damper piston that is). You're right, though - I'd rather not test it...spalding12 said:funny you should ask
the manual says "start on 6"
i have mine on 12
if one were to examine the PHYSICS of the design...
because of the way that the Matris CONNECTS to OUR bike....
there is LITTLE MECHANICAL ADVANTAGE....
so, a LOT of bar movement yields VERY LITTLE dampner movement
i am afraid that this is a classic case of "form over function"
in other words.... i'm NOT at all convinced that the Matris will do that much
of course.... i hope to never FIND THAT OUT for myself :jsm:
someone here must be an engineer and can speak about my (and your) concerns more intelligently
i have studied the way that OTHER dampners are put on bikes...
and our's is quite unique
does this make any sense to you?
