I wondered if you had some greater insight so put it on that way. Now I know :lol



I believe I picked up the Harris triples from you a few years ago, good thing you didn't use them as they're 216mm center to center, not for an R1. They're currently sitting on my TLS until I get my Yoshimura triples back.


No! I never had a Harris yoke. I have Gilles tooling. The best, the only one I would use.

Harris also made it a SS arm. That’s is a beauty. And Dymag made it also a CF arm. Now that’s...

My QD
started to leak on the right hand side.

After some research, came to find out that these QD are bootleg off EBay.




These are legit staubli Dry brake socket. “QD”
Just look at the quality. It’s on my rear braking system. And it comes with brand marks.





The legit webpage to buy these things.

Took the 20% off Probolt sale to make it look more sexy.






These really match the color on the Gilles Tooling rear set pegs.

I just couldn’t stand looking at these Philip head garbage OEM screws any longer. Had to buy proper TI to replace them. So much happier. Would u agree?

Ben and Rubes, what happened here. @Benocehcap you sold this beauty?
Care to share why? I’ve followed this bike for years and I’m interested in the story of everything? Or is it not forum appropriate?

Gear, not trying to answer for Ben here, just my understanding. We both have an extreme love and passion for the sport and the history behind all these parts. Ben wanted to go in a different direction, and I was looking to acquire what he started. Simple as that......

It’s awesome that another major enthusiast bought his bike, because you know it’s not going to be stripped, I was just curious. He was always working on it; I assumed it was his forever baby. What direction did he go?

Def won't be stripped, its going to get some love in the next few weeks then go to the track with me for show and tell...:D

I'll let Ben answer the direction question, it's def something special, and I look forward to seeing what he does next!!
