we are in Australia and will need them shipped over here

Just bought some off ebay. 380 U.S. dollars with free shipping. Best price I found. Good luck. FYI, If you buy the unibiker rad gaurds, ask for the wide ones that fit the fluidyne radiators. Cheers.

hey guy's

I'm having some clearance issues between the chain guide and wide rims.




Its kinda hard to see in the picture but the nut is dangerously close to the tire. Is there a aftermarket chain guide that gives more clearance? Is the chain guide needed for mostly street/forest service roads?

Better picture of the whole bike.

Bill, if you have more room on the other side, you can adjust the spokes to move the rim to the right side. Just loosen the spokes on the left one turn each, tighten the spokes on the right one turn each, and repeat until it is centered.

Quick fix: flip the bolts around so the nut faces to the outside of the swingarm

I looked at that, the problem is the heads are counter sunk on the wrong side. I can counter sink the other side and use big washers on the nuts. Just not a real clean solution.

Also make sure that the wheel spacers are in the correct side. Just realized after having the same problems with my Warp9's that the spacers are different offset, so I swapped them, and no more issues.
