I used to race in Canada against Paul Delaurier. He was my arch rival we battled it out every weekend. Now I just need to catch up to him in the pits so he can work on sending me all that cool used stuff off of Reed's bike. So I can put it on my new 450f. I bet they throw out alot of cool stuff.

It does. So does scoring the backside of the lever with a hacksaw. I prefer the ASV solution, however.

Steve Bruhn did a good job on the writeup. He and I grew up in the same town and use to ride together. He is a great photographer. Man can he shoot some pics. He shot some of me through a berm and stopped the sand and spokes with know blur.

Good stuff.

Jeremy MGrath recommends doing it in his auto-biography.

Man just seeing those two things about the oring and drilling the hole just goes to show how many little "secrets" that are out there...

what wrong with it? Maybe not as sharp as it could be but that could be that the pic was blown up from the original size.

Even if ,it is what it is, Bubba and Ricky have off days. Try digging up some more and comparing.

Just my opinion...I don't think TFS's work is anything special..


Good article though...

I still have the lever, I just don't use it. (Rekluse) :ride:

When are we putting one in your bike?

A drilled lever will break off at the hole leaving you enough to finish the race/ride but will need replacing.
ASV's should never break.
